We should always be ready to share the good news of the gospel. Sounds easy, yet so many Christians aren’t sure how to bridge the topic with unbelievers. Let’s say you’ve started a conversation about spiritual matters…what now? Well, when I took Evangelism Explosion—a course that required going out in teams and witnessing to people in airports, malls, and college campuses—I learned to share my testimony in a three minute spiel.
My little speech began with how I felt before I was a Christian. For example, “I was lacking peace and joy and was looking for answers.” Then I shared the story of my conversion to Christ, ending with how I felt once I was a Christian. As you prepare to share your testimony remember that no one can argue with your feelings. This is your personal testimony and by the “word of your testimony, the enemy is defeated.” Personal experience is by far the most powerful method the media uses. People want to hear that Christianity is real and meaningful in a person’s life.
Amazingly, using our personal testimony to share the gospel is something God thought of first. He sends His people out as living witnesses to the good news. Begin by writing out your conversion story, then taper it down to a three minute or less talk. Practice giving your testimony to family or friends until it easily flows and you feel confident sharing from your heart. Be sure to add Scripture to make sure the gospel message is clear.
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
These verses are a great summary of the gospel message and are ones the Holy Spirit can use to clearly reveal Christ to those seeking to know Him.
