God Comes First


Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

There’s a phrase I’ve heard Christian comedians and pastors use as a joke: “If that doesn’t light your fire, your wood’s wet!” Well, joking aside, it’s actually a sobering statement. You see, they’re talking about motives, and our motives matter to God. If we are operating in our day-to-day lives for our own sake, we’re missing the purpose God has for us and we aren’t living in gratitude for what He has done. When we truly understand the cost of what God paid for our salvation, thankfulness comes first. God comes first. And His glory and commission to us to share the Gospel with every creature becomes vitally important. A grateful people will share what God has done in their lives—and testimonies will abound. You can read some today if you like and learn to write down your own at what’s my story dot org. Let’s put God’s glory first and share our gratitude with others. Who can you share your testimony with this week? For more, visit www.sharelife.today.
