Tell Your Story

In early church times, in the face of severe persecution and strict warnings not to preach in the name of Jesus, the disciples Peter and John responded: “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:19-20). That is an apt description of how Kingdom ambassadors speak of their faith in Jesus: They tell their story. In other words, they “testify” or offer a brief “testimony.” We have designed the chart below to help you prepare your testimony. It also includes relevant Bible verses. Pray for the nonbelievers you know in several ways, including family, work, neighborhood, activities, hobbies, and organizations. Pray for them in light of the Scriptures in column one below. These verses are part of a tool called the “Romans Road,” which lists Bible truths you can use to share the gospel. Column two is headed by Romans 6:23. This column contains three time periods in your life— before, during, and after you became a follower of Jesus. Note how the “Romans Road” verses from column one correspond to the time periods in column two. Column two also provides a way for you to launch into a description of each time period in your life. Column three provides space for you to write a short description for each time period. Follow the prompts with a few sentences each, and remember to include Scripture from column one.
