“Let Me Tell You A Story…”
By Fin Sheridan
“But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God.”
Stories are at the very heart of the Christian faith. The Bible is full of stories and parables. Once told verbally, they are now written for us to tell again and again. When someone gets baptised, we often ask them to share their story of what led up to this moment. Hearing someone’s story can be an extraordinarily intimate experience. That’s why we feel closer to someone who knows our story; we are connected in some way.
Revelation 19:10 says that “… the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy”. What that means is that when someone shares what Jesus has done in their life (aka the “testimony of Jesus”) there is the opportunity for someone to be filled with faith for the same thing to happen to, or for, them (aka the “Spirit of prophecy”).
Let’s use an example, to make this clearer. Imagine you have diabetes and are asking God to heal you. What would happen if you heard a story of someone being healed of diabetes? You’d be encouraged, right?! Hearing them talking about their healing would give you faith to believe for the same for you. Their testimony of Jesus would encourage your spirit. If God did it for them, he could do it for you.
“Currently, we’re looking for UK stories to tell. If you, or someone you know, has a story to tell then we’d love to hear from you!”
That’s why CBN is a storytelling ministry. We document stories and testimonies, across the world, of what God has done in people’s lives. We’ve told stories of miracles, stories of healing, stories of provision and stories of salvation. Marriages, families, children and adults; we want to tell stories that encourage and build faith across the world. We want to show the world what our God can do.
Currently, we’re looking for UK stories to tell. If you, or someone you know, has a story to tell then we’d love to hear from you! Why not comment below or call our prayer team so that we can hear about it? Who knows, perhaps your story could end up being the very thing that inspires someone across the world to believe for their breakthrough too?
