Our Testimony

Bibles References:  Psalm 66:1-16, 2 Peter 2:9, 2 Corinthians 5:19-20

My Testimony.  There are two parts:

1)  The story of how I began my relationship with Jesus, with God.
2)  Message of what God did (universal)

A person's story is persuasive "This is what the Lord did for me!"Example:  John 9:1-34; John 4, Acts 4:20

Paul tells his personal testimony at least six times.  Your testimony is personal it's true, you live it.  God has made YOU unique.  You live your testimony and its a part of you.

Jesus told stories.  People loves stories - its a part of who we are.  Stories build relational bridges.  There are many ways to tell your story.  Most importantly is to tell people of our hope we have in Christ.  Part of your testimony includes your life before Christ, then when you met Christ and then life after meeting Jesus.

What people get involved in shows what matters most to them. Not everyone will want to hear your testimony.  But some will and they will want to meet Jesus.

 What do you believe in?
