So often people are really hesitant to share their faith. One of the reasons for this is because we feel we don’t know enough. Now you may not be a theologian. You may not know hermaneutics or exegesis, which has occasionally been renamed “exit Jesus” but I digress, but there is a story you know, a story about Jesus that you know better than anyone, even those with half the alphabet behind his or her name. It’s the story of what Jesus has done for you.

Truthfully, this is usually the most convincing story, when it comes to sharing our faith. Maybe that’s because it’s the one you’re most passionate about, the one you have actually experienced. Whatever the reason, it’s the story you’re most prepared to share and the one that usually hits home, especially when you take into account the fact that God orchestrates our encounters.

So what’s your story? Write it down. Get to know it and be prepared to share it at every opportunity. You will be amazed at what God can do through it. Oh and by the way, even if you grew up in the church, came to Jesus at an early age and lived a pretty upright life, you still have a story. It’s the story of a God who blessed you immensely.

1 Peter 3:15 says, “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…” How will you share your story?
