"My Life Story"

"When Christ, who is our life..." Colossians 3:4a

For weeks there has been a song that periodically keeps coming to my mind. I want to sing it for you this morning. Let me prepared you first. It is not a Christian song, it's a song from the past and there is only one line that keeps repeating itself. Let me also say that God can use anything that He chooses- even a worldly song- to get His message across. The song says, "If anyone should ever write my life story. For whatever reason there might be. Oh, you'll be there between each line of pain and glory. 'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened to me."

If your life story were to be written, what would it say? What would it reveal about you? What would be included in it? Would Jesus be in it? Would people know that He was "the best thing that ever happened to you"? Would they be able to say they saw Jesus in the good times of your life and in the bad times, in times of pain and times of glory, in times of trials as well as in times of blessings?

In this song the theme and focus was on a person that the writer considered to be the best thing that had ever happened to them. Let me ask you another question- if the story of your life was never written, would anyone still know that Jesus is the best thing, the greatest thing, the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to you just by the way you live your life and conduct yourself?

Just where is He in your life? Is He there at all? If He isn't, He can be- repent of your sins and invite Him into your life as Savior and Lord. If He is, is He the theme of your life? Is He the focus of your life? What would be said about you if the story of your life was written? What is being said about you now in regard to your relationship with Jesus?

Have a great day. Where is Jesus in your life story?
