An Orderly Account

Luke 1:3
With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus.

How do you spread the good news of Jesus Christ?

Not everyone tells their testimony the same way. Preachers preach from the pulpit, but not everyone has a pulpit. I know novelists who tell about Jesus in subtle ways through the characters they write. There are parents who see their own children as their ministry.

If we can change the world by using our gifts, then those gifts are treasures and should be polished and used.

When Luke wrote his account to Theophilus, he had no idea I would be reading his words. How many people will be reading what you write? Are you on Facebook, Twitter, Linked In? Then you’re a part of an ocean of people who read the testimonies of strangers all the time.

Luke said he would write an orderly account. Are we sharing our scores on games we’ve played or giving people words of hope and encouragement? People notice if you put compassion in your epistles. They can tell if you’ve been with God or with your Ipad.

If you have a Theophilus to share a testimony with, share an accurate account of what God is doing in your life and see how God will use that to bless others.

You never know who’s going to read your words.
