Tell Your Story (4)

Evangelist J John “We’re not prepared so we’re not intentional about it but part of bridge-building is to tell a bit of your story and a bit of His story.
I challenged each of us to have a conversation with God this week, to think it through – what are the key points of your story?
Looking at Paul’s testimony in Acts 26:9-23, he talked about What he was like before; What it meant to meet Jesus; and What it’s meant for him since.

Author and evangelist, Tim Keller reminds us that we're not looking to have a debate or to get the whole gospel into one conversation (although we might!). Instead, keep it simple!
Assuming that you are already showing Love and kindness and integrity, then  
Let them know you go to Church
Let them know you are a Christian and that it means something to you  eg "Worry used to be a huge problem for me, and it's still something I struggle with, but I know my Christian faith has really helped me to worry less”

I believe that God will use these simple conversations, and some will lead more naturally into more extensive and deep discussions.

1 Peter 3:15     But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. 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
