How to Show the Way

The great thing about the Bible is that it gives us a model, several actually, of how to engage in sharing our faith with others.  Yesterday we looked at the power of our personal testimony.  The power of sharing the impact that our relationship with Christ has on us.
How to Show the Way
One model we have for sharing our testimony is Paul in Acts 26.  Look at how Paul shares his story with Agrippa:

  • Acts 26:4 – 11 – What Paul was like before he met Christ.
  • Acts 26:12 – 18 – How Paul met Christ
  • Acts 26:19 – 23 – How Paul’s relationship with Christ has impacted him.

Note that there is a connection between Paul’s experience before and after meeting Christ.  He was zealous against the faith prior to meeting Christ and zealous for the faith after.

So the pattern is before, how, and after.  Note that if you read it out loud as if you were sharing it, it only takes about two and a half minutes.

Not long.

Effective.

One thought connect, if you can, before and after like Paul did.
