Sharing your journey of faith is one of the greatest things you can do! Why? Because it celebrates what God is doing in your life. Your faith story will share the goodness of a great, amazing, living God with those who hear it. It will also share that being a Christian does not mean that all trouble in life will go away, but that God will carry a person through that trouble. Be sure to emphasis God’s goodness rather than celebrating your sin. This is an easy trap to fall into in sharing your life story.
To help you do this, we have put together two downloadable sheets to help. The first is called, “Your Faith Story”. It simply asks you some questions to spur your writing down what God has done in your life. The second gives you a keyword to base your story around. Either way, Start writing. Make edits. Share your story with a few others before sharing it in front of the group. Practice, Practice, Practice! 1 Peter 3:15 says, “Always be ready to give a reason for the hope that is within you, but do it with gentleness and respect.” You want to share the goodness of God and his grace in your life. God carried you through your sin and errors. Help those in the audience to believe that God will do that for them as well!
