Iam so excited to share with you a personal testimony from one of our customers. It is not about business or how well we did resolving an issue, but is instead a testimony of life change due to God’s work through our business. I share this testimony with you to encourage you to step out and do something similar through your business. Read on and be encouraged!
Owners Manual For Life
I have written before about our various ministry action processes. Our business is a group of three automobile dealerships. We see several thousand new and used vehicles a year come through our inventory.
In an effort to spread God’s word wherever we can, we place a copy of the New Testament in the glove box of every vehicle that comes through our inventory. The cover of the book reads, “Owners Manual For Life”. We also place a sticker on the inside cover of the book stating that we believe it is the most important book you will ever read. We then give our email addresses in case the reader has any questions or comments.
Over the years, we have received various letters and phone calls of appreciation from customers and even from other dealership employees that find the book in the glovebox. Recently, we received an email from a customer that has had a very hard time as of late. He wrote us to tell how God used that simple book in his glovebox to turn his life around.
Here is his actual email:
Life Change, Multiplied!
I don’t know about you, but that email gives me energy! Knowing that God used a very simple and inexpensive process to change the direction of someone’s life fires me up and makes we want to do even more!
However, that is not the main point of this post. I am excited about life change, but that is not the most exciting part of this email testimony. What do you think excites me even more?
Read the second-to-last paragraph again (beginning with, “Next week…”). Not only did this book inspire Jason to rededicate his own life to Jesus, it also fired him (and his wife!) up to want to do the same for others! THAT’S what excites me the most – life change, multiplied!
Go And Do Likewise!
If you draw any energy at all from reading this life change testimony, then I BEG you to use that energy to go out and do likewise! Stop right now and take some time to determine how you can spread God’s word through your own business. Pray that God would show you various methods you could implement today…before your energy fades.
I promise you that He is faithful to show you what you can do. It is up to you to ask, and then to act. Don’t let your energy fade before you move on this. You will not regret it!
How can God do something similar through your business?
Are you willing to step out and be used?
If not, what is holding you back?
