Sharing Your Faith

Sharing your faith means communicating the message of what Jesus means to you.

Can you do it in a few words?

Having a "testimony" or "faith story" ready can help you know what to say when you have the opportunity. First Peter 3:15-16 says: Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you; yet do it with reverence and respect.

A brochure on witnessing we distributed today in church can be accessed here.

If you feel you don't have a "before and after" story, if you are thankful for the Lord has kept you safe and whole and healthy your whole life long, tell (1) about how thankful you are for your parents or whoever brought you to the Lord in the first place, (2) how it is that they helped you know Jesus or about a time your faith first came alive for you and (3) give an example of how the Lord has brought you through a challenging time.

Each one of us can reach out to someone, inviting them to a closer walk with the Lord.
