Always be Ready

So you’ve started a conversation about spiritual matters...what now? Well, when I took Evangelism Explosion—a course where we went out in teams and witnessed to people in airports, malls, and college campuses—I learned to share my testimony in a three minute spiel. My little speech began with how I felt before I was a Christian. For example, “I was lacking peace and joy and was looking for answers." Then I shared the testimony of my conversion to Christ, ending with how I felt now that I was a Christian. As you prepare to share your testimony remember that no one can argue with your feelings. This is your personal testimony and by the "word of your testimony, the enemy is defeated." Personal experience is by far the most powerful method the media uses. Amazingly, God thought of it first with the use of our testimony. Begin by writing your conversion story out, then taper it down to a three minute or less spiel. Practice giving your testimony to family or friends until it easily flows and you feel confident sharing from your heart.
