1 Peter 3:8-22

Most of us wish we could edit out the not-so-nice chapters of our lives. Yet our stories are a picture of God working in all things for our good. When a person is going through a painful situation we have an opportunity to express our faith and hope.

Every Christian should be able to give a coherent defense of the hope they have in Christ, especially in hopeless situations. This is called a testimony. We begin by simply telling what our lives were like before Christ. Then we describe our born-again spiritual experience using illustrations which hopefully cause the listener to desire this same relationship. We describe how our lives in Christ are different now. Incorporating Scripture can make our story more powerful. Finally, we speak of the reality of the resurrection of Christ, declaring God’s plan and power. Then with gentleness and respect, ask if we can share the prayer of salvation.

Add prayer and practice. God will use you at the right time and in the right place for His glory.
