THE POWER OF YOUR TESTIMONY!
The last book of the Bible assures us that our personal story of faith in Christ is powerful! “And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.” (Revelation 12:11) I’m certain the testimony mentioned here is more comprehensive than merely a brief overview of how conversion took place but our personal experience with Christ is, none the less, held out as one of our most powerful spiritual weapons.
When sharing your personal testimony you should practice with an accountability partner. Then, when the opportunity presents itself to witness you will be confident and prepared. The main reason we share our testimony is to point others to Christ-not cover every detail of our personal life!
Our evangelistic testimony should be brief and include 3 main points:
1) my life before Christ
2) how I became a believer
3) the differences faith in Christ made in my life
Will you share your testimony today? If not, will you ask another believer to work with you to sharpen your testimony? Time is short- eternity is long. Do something today that moves you closer to sharing your faith with a lost friend or family member. ~jkb
