One of the Most Effective Ways to Share Your Faith
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death” (Revelation 12:11 nkjv).
You have an amazing story to tell. Now, you may not be an apologist or a theologian or a Bible scholar, but you’re an expert on your own story.
And one of the most effective ways to share your faith is to begin with your personal story. As believers, it’s one of the most effective tools we have in our evangelistic toolbox.
After all, people can argue with you about what the Bible says and argue with you about other things, but they can’t argue with your story of how Christ transformed you. They can’t argue with what God has done for you.
It’s called a personal testimony. In Revelation 12 there’s an interesting verse that says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death” (Revelation 12:11 nkjv).
This describes Christians who are in Heaven and have overcome the powers of evil. How did they do it? One of the keys is “by the word of their testimony.”
Of course, one of the best ways to go forward in the Christian life is by constantly learning more about Christ, digging into the Word of God, and being part of the church, but it also includes making a stand for Christ in your home, workplace, and neighborhood.
Do people know you’re a Christian? Does your family know you’re a Christian? Do people in your workplace know you’re a Christian? Do people in your neighborhood know you’re a Christian?
The moment you own it, the moment you take that stand and say you’re a follower of Christ, people will be watching you (and secretly hoping you’ll mess up). Yet you may be the only gospel some people will ever read.
