If You Don’t Share Your Story Who Will? – John 9:24-41

From my reading in John 9:24-41 in the One Year New Testament.

The story of how God changed your life is one of the most powerful things you can share. A man who was born blind was healed by Jesus. He didn’t even know who Jesus was yet, so when asked about him this is what he said,

“I don’t know if he is a sinner. One thing I do know: I was blind, and now I see.” John 9:25

We don’t have to know everything about apologetics to be effective at sharing our story.

Your personal story is powerful because it is something that is totally unique to you. No one else can share your story the way that you can. 

When people look for a restaurant or a movie they often look up reviews of people who have been there. Those reviewers as telling their story of the restaurant.

When you share your story of the difference Christ made in your life you are giving Jesus a rave review, which is what he deserves! 

What is even more motivating than a review is a personal friend telling you how much they loved a particular movie. You are a lot more motivated to check it out if it someone you know and trust recommending it.

The better people know you the more powerful a true testimony will be.

They will not only hear you share the difference Jesus has made in you life they will be able to see it!  So don’t be shy! Share your story of how Jesus took someone blind and made them see!

Amazing grace how sweet the sound.

That saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost but now I’m found.

Was blind but now I see.
