Rewrite Your Days With Good News
We observe so much bad news on all the devices we use, that we need to turn to Scripture and allow it to be the Good News it is meant to be. You don’t have to remain a victim of bad news. You don’t have to live with the heartache of past sins, mistakes you’ve made, the opinion of other people, fears, worry or patterns of negative thinking. It’s time to write some better stories for your life. Maybe start with a headline – something like – Another Day of Living Intentionally in Christ.
“Brothers and sisters, I’m making known to you the Good News which I already told you, which you received, and on which your faith is based.”
─ 1 Corinthians 15:1 GW
Most stories, at least the good ones, have six parts to them:
• A what
• A who
• A why
• A when
• A where, and
• A how
Let the Good News be your story.
As you start rewriting your days, make your what the Word of God or the Good News.
• Your who should be Jesus Christ, in whom you believed.
• Salvation is your why because that’s the why of the gospel.
• Your when is today. Every day you want to be able to look back at the end of the day and say, “I did a lot of things today, but this ONE THING I did is going to make a real difference in my life or in the life of someone else to impact their life for Christ.
• Where is wherever God opens the door of opportunity.
• And how, is to be led by the Holy Spirit to do your what – sharing the Good News. Be ready to do whatever He asks of you.
So, think about these six things that can help you tell your Good News story and use them to build the story of your life each day, one day at a time, ONE THING at a time!
Today’s One Thing
