God has put a life message within you. When you became a believer you also became God’s messenger. God wants to speak to the world through you. Paul said, “… we speak the truth before God, as messengers of God.”
You may feel you don’t have anything to share, but that’s the Devil trying to keep you silent. You have a storehouse of experiences that God wants to use to bring others into his family. The Bible says, “Those who believe in the Son of God have the testimony of God in them.” (1 John 5:10a GW)
Your testimony is the story of how Christ has made a difference in your life. Peter tells us that we were chosen by God “to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you.” (1 Peter 2:9 MSG)
Questions To Consider (Ideas for sharing a brief testimony)
1)The Story Of Your Life—Tell us a little bit about yourself (birthplace, parents/siblings, interests, etc.).
2)The Story Of Your Faith—What was your life like before knowing God personally? How did you come to know Jesus in your life? How are things different today?
3)Coming To Grace–When you moved into this area, how you ended up at this new church, what you like best, why you stayed, got involved, etc.
4)Stories Of Grace—What has God been teaching you through his Word? How has He been providing for you, your family, etc? What have you learned about serving God, living out your faith in daily life, or loving others? How do you hope to continuing growing in faith and serving God in the future? What plans or desires do you have?
