Telling of testimonies
Sharing your Testimony
People can and have tried to dispute the Word of God however, they cannot dispute the experiences you’ve had. Sharing your testimony can be rewarding however it’s also a vulnerable thing.
15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behaviour in Christ may be put to shame. 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil.
1 Peter 3:15-17 ESV
There are many ways that you can share your testimony. It could be how;
- You became a Christian.
- God is helping you now.
- God helped you through a tough time in your life.
- God has blessed you.
When should you share your testimony on camp?
- At camp, we like to have a different Volunteer share their testimony each day of the camp normally at supper time. If you are prepared to do this, please talk to your Key Leaders.
- Consider sharing your testimony one on one or in a small group so be prepared.
Some things to consider when you are sharing your testimony.
- Keep it God-focused and to the point.
- Be brave and honest!
- Try and avoid speaking Christian jargon. Words such as repent, gospel, saved and born again can be confusing.
- Practice makes perfect. Work on being clear with what you are trying to say.
- Think about who your audience is and what they will relate to in your story.
- Remember – No one can argue your story and what you have experienced.
