People love to share good news. We announce marriages and births. When something good happens, we rush to tell someone. The more exciting the news, the harder it is to be silent.
A Christian has the most exciting news – the life-changing news of eternal life. It is natural for a Christian to want to share this good news. Think for a moment about the various people God used to bring you to the place where you were willing to receive Jesus.
Now God wants you to be part of helping others come to know Jesus.
When Andrew met Jesus, his first inclination was to bring his brother, Simon Peter, to meet Him (read John 1:40-42).
For a Christian, witnessing is not an option. Jesus commanded His followers to witness.
There are two things you should use when sharing Jesus:
- Your Personal Testimony
1. Your personal testimony is your own account of:
- Your Life Before Receiving Jesus,
- How You Received Jesus, and
- How Jesus Makes Your Life More Meaningful.
Read Paul’s testimony in Acts 22:3-21. On a sheet of paper, write out the three parts of your testimony about your relationship with the Lord.
2. Scripture is the second part of sharing Jesus with others.
The following verses will help you explain to unbelievers the good news of eternal life. Take time now to read them and underline them in your Bible.
