The Good News of the Gospel

Salvation Scriptures

share them with your loves ones

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you,So that He will not hear.

That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Preparing Your Testimony

1 Peter 3:15-16
Every time we tell our story (our testimony), we give honour and glory to God, and He is pleased with that.

Your story – regardless of how “spectacular” or “ordinary” you think it is – is a story about God’s character. It is your eyewitness account of how God rescued you from sin and death through Christ and changed your life as a result.

When we share our story with others, we help them get to know what God is like and what He can do.
Whether you are in line at the grocery store, sitting with a family member or standing in front of a group of people, the Bible calls us to “always be ready” to explain our hope in Christ with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15-16, NLT). Sometimes we like to think that because it’s our story, we don’t have to do anything to be ready to tell it. After all, we were there when it happened, and we’re living it now.

Yet, we can get nervous, become side-tracked or forget things when sharing our testimonies, which can be confusing or distracting for those listening. This is why a little preparation and practice can be so valuable.

Let’s take a look at how to put your story together, section by section. There are five basic parts to your story: the opening, your life before Christ, how you came to Christ, your life after Christ, and the closing.

1. The Opening

Identify a theme you can use to frame your story. What did your life revolve around (e.g. relationships, your reputation, money) that God used to help bring you to Him? Briefly illustrate how that influenced your life.

2. Your Life Before Christ

Paint a picture of what your life was like before you came to Christ. Don’t dwell too much on, or brag about, past sin struggles. Share only the details that relate to your theme – just enough to show your need for Christ.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What about my life before Christ will relate most to the non-Christians I know?
  • What did my life revolve around? Where did I get my security, identity or happiness from?
  • How did those things begin to let me down?
3. How You Came to Christ

Give the details about why and how you became a Christian. Communicate in such a way that the person you are talking with, and anyone who overhears you, can understand how they can become a Christian, too. Even if your listeners are not ready for that, God could use your story and explanation of the gospel to draw them to Himself in the future.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • When was the first time I heard the gospel?
  • What were my initial reactions?
  • When and why did my perspective of Christ begin to change?
  • What were the final struggles that went through my mind just before I accepted Him?
  • Why did I finally decide to accept Christ (or give Him complete control of my life)?
4. Your Life After Coming to Christ

Share some of the changes that Christ has made in your life as they relate to your theme. Emphasise the changes in your character, attitude or perspective, not just mere changes in behaviour. Be realistic. We still struggle as Christians. Life is far from perfect, but what’s different about your life now?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • How is my life different now? List some specific changes in your character, attitude and perspective on life.
  • What motivates me now?
  • What do I live for?
  • Even though my life still isn’t perfect, how does knowing Christ help me deal with that fact?
5. The Closing

End with a statement that summarises your story and connects everything back to your theme. If you want, close with a Bible verse that relates to your experience.

Now that you’ve answered these questions take a few minutes to write out your story as if you were telling it to someone.

  • Pray before you write out and share your story. Ask God for wisdom and the words to say.
  • Don’t be overly negative or positive. Be honest.
  • Don’t criticize or name any church, denomination, organization, etc.
  • Think about your listener(s).
  • Avoid overly-religious terms.
  • Aim to keep your story to three to five minutes. At that length, it’s easily something you can share in a conversation without it becoming a monologue.
  • Practice your testimony out loud several times until you feel comfortable with it.
Congratulations! You’ve created your personal testimony.

The Lord can use you to help others come to know Christ. Ask God for opportunities to share your story and the gospel with others.
