Your Faith Story

In The Acts of the Apostles, we read that as persecution began in Jerusalem, lay people scattered to the four winds to preach the Word. Everyone left except the apostles. How important Jesus sees lay people to build up his Church.

People love stories. We go to the movies. We read novels. We tell jokes that contain stories. And many times, we see ourselves in those stories. Sharing our faith is much the same. A person who doesn’t know the Lord personally isn’t going to listen to dogma and Church teaching.

But they will listen to your stories. Our life stories and experiences make Jesus a real person people can relate to. Before people can eat the Bread of Life at the Eucharist, they need to eat the bread that gives them life from our witness.

When you tell someone about your faith journey and how Jesus called you to himself, you will see him doing the same for that person, calling that person to himself through you. This is because faith in Jesus begins with a call.

Be that call to your family and friends. Remember, faith isn’t, first of all, about doctrine and who is right and who is wrong. Faith is a relationship with God.

Gospel Challenge:
The first words of Jesus to all of his disciples was the call, “Come, follow me.”

Now go to the four winds and share the good Word the Lord has written in your heart.
