How To Evangelize Using Testimonies



Think back to before you were born again
The struggles within
The loneliness
The lack of peace
The absence of love
The unrest
The fears

Talk about the decision that revolutionized your life and  the change
The difference it has made since you received Christ
Speak of Christ, not the church
Emphasize faith, not feeling
Be human and honest as you talk

You want your testimony to produce results, so:

Ask God to open your lips and honor your words
Be warm and genuine.
Let your enthusiasm flow freely
Be positive and courteous
Let your smile breaks down the barriers
Talk of the sheer joy and excitement of knowing Christ
Talk about how exciting Christ really is in an interesting way
Absolutely refuse to argue

Now, If you are not sharing the gospel with lost people (which means to open your mouth and speak about Jesus Christ and the way to eternal life), it is for one of two reasons. Either you are so young and immature in your faith that you did not know that God has commanded you, through His Word, to go and tell the world about Jesus Christ. Or, your fear of man and your love of self are greater than your fear of God, your love for God, and your love for people.

Who Loves Who...?



Don’t ever boast of how much you love Jesus

Boast of how much Jesus loves you.

Our love is fickle.

It runs hot and cold.

But God’s love for us never changes.

It is always there.

John the apostle referred to himself as-

"The disciple whom Jesus loved.”

That was not arrogant.

John was saying that he knew Jesus loved him.

And you need to know that Jesus loves you

Even if you have fallen away from Him.

Maybe you have messed up.

Maybe you are in a backslidden state.

The way to get right with God is to return to Him.

God says in Jeremiah 3:22

“Return, you backsliding children

And I will heal your backsliding.”

So, remember where you were.

Return and repent of your sin.

And then start living as God wants you to live.

What's It To When You Believe...?




"‘If you can'! All things are possible for one who believes." —Mark 9:23

If you believe, then God can do anything in your life!

If you believe, God is able to do all things.

If you believe, God will do them according to His plan.

If you believe, God will do them according to His purpose.

If you believe, God will do them according to His will.

If you believe, God can do anything.

If you can believe, all things are possible!

Father God! I believe! What is your will and purpose for my life, today?

Lessons I Never Want To Forget


To every promise of God there are conditions

If we are willing to do His will, all His strength is ours

Whatever gift He promises, is in the promise itself

If we receive the promise, we have the gift

Some measure of faith is imparted to every human being

Faith grows as exercised in the Word of God

Truth, uprightness, and purity are the secrets of life's success

Prayer and faith are closely allied

When praying, we must ask for the things that God has promised

Prayer is a necessity, not an option

Secret communion with God sustains the soul life

The Bible is a book of good moral instruction as well as the Word that is to mold our actions, words, and thoughts

Yesterday's Testimony



Decorated seashell from Gene's collection

During my door-to-door outreach yesterday I met this beautiful couple, Gene and Carolyn Price. Gene collects a variety of things in nature and displays them in his apartment. Gene is also a singer and songwriter. He is interested in sharing his talent with Everyone. He can be reached at (718)778-3890.

This couple was my very first contact of the day. We connected instantly. While Carolyn  searched The Natural Remedies Encyclopedia, Gene shared his life's journey with me of how The Lord has blessed him and his family. "No one can curse what The Lord has blessed" he said, which prompted me to share the story of Balaam who was called to pronounce a curse over the children of Israel. But instead he uttered words of blessing over God's people, which infuriated Balak, the king of Moab (Numbers 23).

Once again, The Lord preceded me and paved the way. Instead of a slamming door, this family invited me in and shared the many blessings of God.

Testimony


Testimony is not about what you gave up for Jesus.
It's about what He gave up for you.
Don't share what you have done for Jesus.
Share what Jesus has done for you.
Jesus is the one who has done the work.
It is Jesus whom we are proclaiming.
A good, strong testimony will lift up what Christ has accomplished.

With that said, here is my testimony:

God woke me up this morning and I had no idea how this day was going to turn out (yeah right, as if I ever do). But God allowed me to trust Him to precede me to the doors I was to knock on. By His grace I remembered to remain prayerful throughout my rounds. Everyone He blessed me with the opportunity to interact with today was like long lost friends. God allowed me to meet this one lady that after praying, we hugged as friends do. The fact that Jesus keeps me connected to Him pays off. This beautiful experience was all because of His grace.

What's your Testimony?
