Day 65~ Acts 24-26
Recently, before leaving on a “mission trip”, the leader of our group spent a bit of time teaching us how to share our testimony. It was very simple. He wanted us to share:
- What was your life before Christ?
- How did you meet Christ?
- How was your life changed after accepting Christ as your Savior?
With this method of sharing Christ, the missionary we visited had planted 7,000 churches!!!
In today’s reading I see where our leader got these three points. It was the method Paul used! As he began his defense to King Agrippa, he started with describing his life before Christ; a zealous Pharisee (26:4-12). Then he explained how he met Christ (26:12-16). Verse 26:16 sums up how his life changed after receiving Christ. “I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen and will see of me.”
That templet takes the stress out of sharing Jesus with others. You don’t need a graduate degree in theology before you can speak. All you need is your own story. No one can argue with your personal story. It’s simple and effective!
