Too Personal posted by John Sorensen on Oct 17, 2016
When sharing your faith, have you ever asked someone about their spiritual life only to have them say, “That’s too personal a question?”
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. One way to preclude that response, is to start your conversation with something personal about your own life. For example, you can talk about an area of your life where you really see God working with what I refer to as a “slice of life” testimony. It could have to do with a new job, a loss of a job and God’s faithfulness, a family situation, dealing with the loss of a loved one or many other topics. But it’s not the “birth til now” testimony that we often think of. In fact, you might be able to share it in under :60. It’s a great way to start a spiritual conversation. So, if you’d like to try this “slice of life” testimony idea, we have an on-line tool that can help. Just visit our website at ShareLife.today to take advantage of our free resource. And while you’re there, you can read other testimonies and then create your own.
