Sharing your story

share your story

reaching others by sharing about Jesus Christ

Reaching others

Your story — regardless of how “spectacular” or “ordinary” you think it is — is a story about God’s character. It is your eyewitness account of how God rescued you from sin and death through Christ and changed your life as a result.
 
When you share your story with others, you help them get to know what God is like and what He can do.
 

"...always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect..." -1 Peter 3:15

Prayer

Ask God to help you form into words the transformation he has formed in your heart.

prepare

Write a 2-3 minute conversation about:
1) your life before Christ
2) when you experienced Christ
3) your life following Christ

share

Ask God to put someone before you this week to share Christ with... then do it!

1) prayer

Begin this process by having an extended time of prayer with God. Travel back in time when you first encountered the life transforming power of the Holy Spirit transforming your heart. Thank God for calling you to him.

2) Prepare

Get a pen, paper, and a quiet space to do some writing. Think back to your life before Jesus started transforming your life.  How did you think, feel, and behave before Jesus came into the picture? What was important to you and why? Next, think back to when you first heard about Jesus and were set free from sin. Paint a picture of that scene and how you felt. Remember that moment. Finally, how has trusting God with your past, present, and future changed the way you live your life? What things are you still giving over to Him? What promises are you claiming from Scripture and how is your identity being changed by your new identity in Jesus? Remember, we're all in process. Don't feel the pressure to have it all together before you share your faith. Be honest with where you're at, God will use that for His fame and glory. And possibly, to change someone else's life.

3) Share

Think about all of the people in your life that you haven't shared Jesus with. Select three and begin to pray for them daily. Ask God to give you an opportunity to share with them how Jesus is transforming your life. Pray for boldness, courage, and the Spirit's guidance as you share with them.
