Timothy is a Christian who enjoys creating visual art and writing. He has a B.S. in Psychology.

“Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope.” 1 Peter 3:15

A Positive Message

What is your story? Believe it or not every Christian has a positive message. It is about the about the moment you came to accept Jesus into your heart. While some people have a positive message of a dramatic life change, others accept Jesus with little fanfare and then go on to live their lives as a new creation.

Sadly when people who have no dramatic reason for accepting Jesus into their lives, like turning from drugs or alcohol feel their positive message is less worthy of telling. Truth is whether there is a dramatic change in your life or not, the important thing is to share the message.

Why would you ever want to tell anyone your positive message? There are three major reasons.

  • Family and friends may be interested in your story.
  • Others you come in contact with may relate to your story.
  • You are the only one who really knows you and how much you've changed.

3 Reasons to Have A Positive Message Ready

1. Close family and friends are interested in your life

Matthew 5:16 "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

When you came to the Lord you changed. You are not the same person you were. Family and friends may notice you've changed in any number of ways. They will want to know why. Having an understanding of your positive message will go a long way to help tell them why you've changed and how they themselves can experience a true life change.

2. Other people may be able to relate to your story.

Isaiah 55:11 "so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it"

In addition to be called to share your positive message with family and friends you ar called to share the message with others outside your family. As you tell your positive message to other people they may have a similar story to yours. A similar way they came to know Jesus. There is an old saying that, "Sharing is caring."

3. You are the only one who really knows you.

Matthew 10:20, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you

The third reason you want to share your positive message is that no one can argue against what you really feel in your heart. Remember, It is your personal message. You lived through the change in your life. You knew how you were before you gave your life to Jesus and you know how you feel now.

Sharing your positive message in words and more importantly deeds is the only way to truly show others you've changed and changed for the better/

.

“ but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,“ 1 Peter 3:15

How To Share A Positive Message With Others

The chief two ways you can share your positive message with others is:

1. In a casual conversation.

In your daily walk you converse with many people. As you always do with other things you're excited about you will want to do with your positive message - share it with other people.

2. Live the message

The best way to give away you positive message is to live the message. The old cliche "action is better than words" is so true when it comes to sharing your positive message.

Some other ways you may be able to share your positive message is on:

3. On social media

Social media is a good place to share your message. Remember though sharing is caring. You don’t want want to be offensive so be sensitive with your followers on social media. Start out by sharing some Bible passages or what outreach you’re doing in you neighborhood. Shoe people who you are before telling what you’re all about.

4. Write about your message

Another outreach is to start a free blog or write on HubPages. In this way you can share informative articles which are also an outreach of your positive message to others.

Your Positive Message

Once you accept Jesus it is best to have a clear idea of the reasons you came to a saving grace and to work those reasons into a positive message. After you have a clear positive message the times comes to share the message with others anyway you can. This is your calling.

      Our testimonies are hugely important. Particularly for the unsaved to hear. The unsaved are often curious about 'why' others believe what they do and are eager to listen. What a perfect way to introduce them to our Lord, Jesus Christ. Thanks for the hub. God Bless

      I used to think my story was bland, but I have learned the important thing is not really how you got there but that you are there. Thanks for your comments.

      Thank you. This is a useful reminder that we need to tell our story. This year in our church it has been called the Year of Faith Sharing and we have been so uplifted by the stories we have heard so far. It's not always an easy thing to do, but it is a wonderful thing to do, a great opportunity for witness and I praise God for it.
