At Every Believer a Witness, we love to train people how to share their story of how God saved them and transformed their lives by His amazing grace! When people write their story and work hard to craft it in such a way that it can be shared conversationally, there are some awesome things that take place!
Writing your story can provide you with the reassurance that you are saved, or it reveals the reality that you are not. Everywhere we go there are believers who are dealing with doubts about their salvation.
Many of us have doubted our salvation at one time or another. It could be because we are not walking closely with the Lord and not in tune with the Spirit of truth. It could be because we are under attack from the enemy to distract us from serving and sharing. Or…it could certainly sometimes be because the Holy Spirit is revealing that we may have gone through some ceremonially motions, but we’ve never been born again.
This is Jackson and Kara’s story. Jackson Stallsworth and Kara Vaughn attended our training revival at Quinton Baptist Church in Bronston, KY on March 24-27. Jackson is Pastor Jack Stallsworth’s grandson, and Kara has attended QBC faithfully and taught the women’s Sunday school class for years. On Sunday night while writing her story, God began to speak to Kara. She realized that she didn’t have a true salvation story because she didn’t have a relationship with Jesus. It really hit her when Jackson came forward to receive Christ that night. Jackson had made a profession of faith at a younger age, but he realized that night that he didn’t genuinely know Jesus. After talking more with Pastor Jack the next day, on Monday night, Kara put her faith in Jesus!! She humbly, yet boldly, stood before her church family that night as they celebrated her decision and praised God for her salvation! We thank God for Jackson and Kara’s salvation! God is so faithful to always guide us into the truth with His Spirit.
Are you struggling with doubts about your salvation? Maybe you truly know Jesus, but the joy has faded. Or maybe the truth is that you know about Jesus, but you don’t know Him because you have never crossed over from death to life. First, take some time to seek God in prayer and listen for His Spirit to speak to you through His Word. Next, write down your story (your life before you knew Jesus, how you came to accept Jesus as your Savior, and your life since Jesus came in). Finally, share your story with someone today!! We love you, and we are praying for you and with you!
