Have you ever been around someone who just loves to debate everything? They debate politics, religion, even what soap is the best. They simp-ly debate for the sake of debating. Sometimes this can be fun and insightful, while other times it can just be obnoxious.
As Christians, we can often find ourselves in the middle of such debates. Whether God is real, whether Jesus is the only way to God, whether being a good person is enough? Whatever the debate, there will be someone out there that will find some way to debate what we have to say or even what the Word of God has to say. At Move Conference earlier this month one of the speakers, Clayton King, spoke about this very issue. He talked about how people can argue anything and everything you believe in and stand for. But there is one thing that no one can argue with you about: Your Story.
Your Story. Your experiences with God, how he has loved you, protected you, gave you strength when you had none left, and most importantly, how He changed you. Try as the world might, they can’t argue with your story and your life. So when you feel the world around you questioning and debating whether God is even real, look at your life and your story and find solace in the truth. No one can take away from you what God has done in your life.
Let us hold on to this truth of God’s power as we make our way through this world to further His Story with the testament of our story.
