How to Tell Your Story
Everyone who has come to know Jesus should begin telling their story right away to others. You don’t have to wait until you know more, achieve more, or believe more. If you have had a genuine encounter with God, a spiritual awakening, a salvation or conversion experience, then you can and should share what has happened with people you know. You have the privilege and responsibility of passing on the good news of Jesus Christ.
You have come to know Christ in your own unique way. And when you tell others what you experienced, no one can refute it or challenge your version in any way. This is the key to witnessing—you must have boldness to tell your story and what happened to you when you wanted Jesus Christ in your life.
It comes down to three points.
How It Was
When you remember the event of your encounter with Christ, you may remember some of the events leading up to that encounter. You can certainly remember what your life was like before you came to know Him. Some of our stories are more hellish than others, but we have each lived in our own personal “hell.” So we give a brief recounting of how our life was when we were utterly dependent on ourselves.
