Think, for a moment, about the four gospels in the New Testament. The gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, are very different. Yet, in many ways, they are much alike, because they are all about Jesus. No matter which book we read, the theme is the same: Jesus lived, and died for our salvation.
There is another gospel, though. It is one that you may not often think about, but one that you have lived. The gospel is your gospel: The Gospel According to Jack, The Gospel According to Elinor, The Gospel According to Mike, The Gospel According to Jeannine. Whatever your name, fill in the blank: The Gospel According to ____________ .
How does your gospel begin? With the birth of Jesus? The prophecy of the Messiah? The lineage of the King from the past, to the present? Maybe your gospel even begins with your birth. What is the true heart, the center, of your gospel? All of our individual stories about Jesus will be different. But, the essence will be the same. We will tell what we have seen, and experienced about our Savior. We will write down what He has done for us, and what He can do for everyone.
Think about your gospel today. Maybe God wants you to spread the Word, by putting it on paper, so future generations will know more about Jesus. Your story is important, and the world needs to hear it.
