When share your faith a testimony can bring the Bible and your faith in Christ to life. I have found that people love hearing stories of how God has done great things for you.
When I share about my testimony I touch on three main areas. These three things really help me to structure my story and how Jesus’ story impacted and changed my life.
My life before Christ – I share things like how I felt, my long term illness, what sort of things I was in to, my upbringing and the sense of emptiness I had inside. These things set the scene.
My conversion – I then share how I came to Jesus. I talk about how I was feeling in the year before coming to Jesus, the people who helped me and the story of Jesus coming to die on the cross for me.
How my life has changed – In this final section I share how knowing Jesus personally has changed my whole life and outlook. I talk about the love, acceptance, hope, joy and purpose I now feel inside.
You can also share things some of the things that God has done for you. I actually have several short testimonies that I share with people depending on the situation.
So why not spend some time preparing a simple testimony. It really helps when someone asks about your faith in Christ.
