WHY SHARE MY STORY?
At some point, you realized that life wasn’t working out so well when you were running it on your own and you needed help. People can usually run their lives okay when things are going well but when the inevitable problems happen we need help to see another perspective.
Your story may have been extreme and radical, or it might have been a calm profession of true belief. Both depict God’s love and mercy because all (both loud and quiet) have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
When Jesus’ disciples thought back on all He had taught them, they were able to spread Jesus’ Way to more and more people. Remembering their life before Jesus and comparing it to their lives after knowing Jesus spurred them on.
Preparing Your Story
The questions below will help you put together a clear presentation of your personal testimony by bringing clarity and organization to the events surrounding your conversion.
BEFORE I ACCEPTED CHRIST OR GAVE HIM COMPLETE CONTROL
What was life like before I accepted Christ? What attitudes, hurts, habits or hang-ups were in control of me?
What "idol" did my life revolve around? What did I get my security, value or happiness from?
How did those idols begin to let me down?
HOW I RECEIVED CHRIST OR GAVE HIM COMPLETE CONTROL
When was the first time I fully understood the gospel? Or describe how I was exposed to a significant experience with Jesus.
What were my initial reactions when I clearly understood God's grace?
When did my attitude about Christ and/or the gospel begin to change? Why?
Were there any final struggles that went through my mind just before I accepted Jesus?
Why did I finally go ahead and repent of my sin and put my faith in Jesus to save me by grace?
AFTER I ACCEPTED CHIRST OR GAVE HIM COMPLETE CONTROL
Specific changes in my thinking or attitudes I have seen in my life since surrendering my life to God?
Why am I motivated differently? How does my relationship with Jesus now affect my attitudes or decisions regarding life, death, relationships, my future, etc.?
