Sometimes the hardest part of evangelism is sharing our personal testimony. Our testimony is a bridge built into the lives of others that the Gospel can travel across.
When the demon possessed man in Mark 5 was delivered, he "departed and began to proclaim in Decapolis all Jesus had done for him; and all marveled." (v. 19-20)
When Jesus changed the life of the woman at the well in John 4, she testified. "And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all that I ever did.” So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days. And many more believed because of His own word." (v. 39)
The blind man in John 9 was healed and said, "One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see." (v. 25)
We should testify about what God is continuing to do in our lives, not just our conversion experience.
When you share your testimony, you build a bridge into the heart of people that Jesus can walk across.
When you share your testimony, you help those who have questions and objections to the faith see real evidence of a true God at work.
When you share your testimony, you give a real example! It's not just something you heard about or read about - you experienced it!
Sharing your testimony can be done in one minute or one hour. It can be done by a seasoned believer or new believer. It must be personal and relational. If you have been saved, you have a story to tell.
Share about: (1) Before I met Jesus... (2) How I met Jesus... and (3) After I met Jesus...
Keep your ears open to ways to turn your conversations toward Christ and share what He is doing in your life!
