Sharing Your Faith
How to Share the Gospel
Sharing the Gospel with someone sounds like a really hard task and can often seem like a very scary proposition. But there’s good news. It doesn’t have to! Much of sharing the Gospel is just sharing your own life story, how Christ has impacted you, and describing the essence of what it means to be a Christian. Not sure how to describe the essence of what it means to be a Christian? Sharing with someone the concepts from a tool like THIS will help you keep on track to share the core of the Gospel.
How to Write Your Testimony
As you develop closer connections and relationships with your friends, co-workers, neighbors, and family members you will want them to know what Christ has done in your life. It is great to tell them, “Yeah, I’ve found Christ and he’s really awesome and you should believe, too,” but maybe there’s a more effective way to explain it to them. This is what we call your ‘testimony.’ It is the story of how you came to Christ and what he did in your life.
Here’s the essence of what to include in your unique testimony:
What your life was like before you met Christ.
How you committed your life to Christ.
The difference Christ made in your life.
This TOOL can help you work through how to write your testimony. After you’ve completed a draft of it share it with the person who led you to Christ, your small group leader, or another Christian you look up to. Yes, this is a theme in everything we do in the Christian life; to have some sort of a mentor in your life who will walk alongside you! Let that person speak into what you’ve written, giving you ideas, feedback, and improvements. When you have it in a form that is concise and natural, memorize it. Now you will be ready when you have the opportunity to share how Christ has changed your life.
