Alex Kremer 12-17-2023 // I Love to Tell the Story; Acts 25:13-26:32
We all have our own stories from our lives. And if we're honest, we will admit that we frequently repeat the same stories; even to the point where others can fill in forgotten details. But there is one story that is the most important thing about us. And that is the story of what God has done in our own live.
One hymn writer put it this way,
I love to tell the story, 'Tis pleasant to repeat
What seems, each time I tell it, More wonderfully sweet.
I love to tell the story, For some have never heard
The message of salvation From God's own holy Word.
When Paul stood before the governor, Felix, he recounted his story. And now, after two years of imprisonment, Paul stands before Festus, the new governor, along with Herod Agrippa. And Paul again has opportunity to share his story. And we find this is something Paul is eager to do. For in telling the story of his own conversion, along with the reasons for his various trials, he is able to point his listeners to the wonderful Gospel of Jesus Christ and the purposes of God.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. We pray you will be encouraged through the teaching of God's Holy Word, and be emboldened to share your story of God's work in your life. If you do not have that story, we pray you will come to know the Person and work of Jesus Christ through faith in Him.
