share your storyreaching others by sharing about Jesus Christ
"...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
Ask God to help you form into words the transformation he has formed in your heart.
Write a 2-3 minute conversation about:
1) your life before Christ
2) when you experienced Christ
3) your life following Christ
Ask God to put someone before you this week to share Christ with... then do it!
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.
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.
