Everybody has a story. If you have a relationship with God, aka you’re a Christian, then you have a God story. That is how God is working in your life.
I think its comical that believers have “witness envy”. You know you don’t have the,” I was a axe murder then one day one of my victims shared Jesus with me and I gave my life to Christ and moved to Somalia to feed the poor, story” . But everyone has a God story and most likely it is relevant to the people you Know and are going to share it with.
There are two types of God stories that you can share with those around you. There’s (1) how you came to put your faith in Jesus and (2) what God is doing in your life.
. . . Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, (1 Peter 3:15 NIV)
Basic steps for telling your God story 1. You before God – what was it that drew you to want God in your life. Don’t over glamorize how bad you were. 2. How you met God – how did you get introduced. What was it that made you fall in love with Christ. 3. How has you life changed – what about you is different. What hope do you have now that you have chosen to follow Christ.
It only takes a few minutes to think through it. You don’t have to be a polished speaker to share your story. My experience has been that most of the time this happens over a meal or coffee with a Friend. If you want to practice try it on a Friend who is a Christian.
“Anything worth doing is worth doing badly” – GK Chesterton
The most important part is just to tell it. Your Story is how God changed your life, that’s a miracle.
