''HOW TO TELL YOUR STORY''



How to share your testimony with others is vital. I have lead a lot of people to Christ by just sharing how I came to know Christ and what He did for me. If you have come to Christ then you have a testimony.
My story is a long one about how I lived and what I got into before coming to Christ. Mine is one of searching, selfishness and sin. Its one in which I tried other things because I didn't have the answer.
My wife's story is one of coming to Christ at age 5 and seeing how He saved her just the same...........He also saved her from going through what I did as I searched.


Any testimony for Jesus Christ should have these ingredients:



WHAT YOUR LIFE WAS LIKE BEFORE YOU CAME TO CHRIST

HOW YOU HEARD OR ENCOUNTER CHRIST / WHEN YOU ACCEPTED HIM

WHAT HE DID AND HAS DONE SINCE YOUR SALVATION


You will also want to make sure that throughout your testimony (story) you:


DON'T HAVE TO DIG INTO THE DETAILS OF YOUR SIN

DON'T FOCUS ON JUST YOU

DON'T LEAVE THOSE YOUR TELLING YOUR TESTIMONY TO WITHOUT A CHOICE



The most important thing to do while telling your story is:


POINT TO AND TELL ABOUT JESUS MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE

USE SOME SCRIPTURE IN YOUR STORY

URGE THEM TO ACCEPT CHRIST TOO


You can also


SHARE A GOOD GOSPEL TRACT WHILE SHARING

GIVE THEM A BIBLE

INVITE THEM TO CHURCH, BIBLE STUDY OR OUT REACH EVENT



Your testimony of Jesus Christ and your salvation can lead many to Christ! You can share at Church, Bible study, put it on tape and even put it on the web.
Remember its you story about who, the what and the why of Jesus Christ.


Its very important to know that the Holy Spirit will help you as you tell your testimony. He will guide and empower you to unleash Jesus Christ.



Remember Jesus said


IN JOHN 15:26-27

26"When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me. 27And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.

2 thessalonians 1:6-10

God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you
7and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord
  Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.
8He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
9They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the
   Lord and from the majesty of his power
10on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all
  those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you.
