Get up and dance!

Marketing is storytelling.

Take a moment to read Acts 3:2-10

Now a man crippled from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them. Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

This isn’t just the beggar’s story. It’s our story.

We were once crippled by sin.

We accepted Christ and, by grace, our sins were forgiven.

Let’s get up and dance! Jump up and praise God!

Like the beggar, people will notice. They’ll see the smile on your face and the relief in your eyes. Then they will ask: “What happened to you?”

Be ready to share your story.
