Telling the story of what Jesus has done for you is more than just recounting events. It’s about sharing the transformative power of faith. As Christians, this is an important part of our journey.

Before Jesus went to heaven, He gave His followers a command in Mark 16:15:

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”

Sharing your story about Jesus of our salvation is essential for every Christian. It’s a rewarding task to follow this command.

Why We Must Tell Our Stories About Jesus

The transformative experience of salvation is one that should be experienced by everyone. It is called “the gospel or good news,” and no one wants to be exempted from the good news. It’s like finding water in the desert. Think of how happy it will make the whole caravan to hear and experience the joys of water after a hot day. Here is why we must tell our stories about Jesus.

Sharing Your Story About Jesus Is A Form of Evangelism and Gratitude

Your passion for sharing what Jesus has done for you is a form of evangelism. It is like a seed sown on the ground, which, when it’s germinated and grown, will draw tens and hundreds of souls to the kingdom of God.

Being passionate about sharing your story about Jesus is an expression of profound gratitude and awe inspired by His saving grace. As Psalm 107:2 proclaims, 

“Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—those he redeemed from the hand of the foe.” 

When we passionately testify about King Jesus, it’s a way of thanking Him and telling the world of His loving kindness. 

What’s more? Your passion for telling the story of what Jesus has done for you can serve as a form of encouragement and edification within the Christian community. As the Apostle Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 1:3–4, 

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” 

Encouraging Others Through Sharing Your Story About Jesus

By sharing your story about Jesus, we provide hope and encouragement to others facing similar challenges, demonstrating the transformative power of Christ’s love and grace. It resonates deeply with others who may be seeking hope or meaning, as Romans 10:17 states, 

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” 

Many believers face different challenges and difficulties in their daily lives; sharing our story helps these brethren and strengthens bonds among believers. 

Testimonies Show God’s Power

Testimonies are powerful, especially during tough times. They open the way for God to move in our lives and bring victory. Revelation 12:11 says:

“And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.”

Praise God!

Everyone’s Testimony Matters

All followers of Christ are called to witness His power and grace (Acts 1:8). Each person’s story is unique and shows how Jesus works in our lives. You don’t need to be a minister or a church leader. Everyone is called to share the good news of Jesus. Philip, a deacon, shared the good news with the city of Samaria and an Ethiopian eunuch. Imagine the lost souls if he hadn’t shared his testimony.

How Must We Tell the Story?

Sharing personal stories of Jesus’s impact on our lives is not about boasting but about bearing witness to his grace and mercy. As the apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 4:5, “For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. Hence, it must be told with grace and humility, directing the focus to Jesus rather than oneself.”

Conclusion

Sharing what Jesus has done for us is a great commission. It’s even more urgent now, as the coming of Jesus is near. The harvest is plenty. By sharing our stories about Jesus, we make ourselves available for God’s work on earth.

Remember, your story can change lives. Tell it with passion, gratitude, and humility. Let the world see the power of Jesus through your testimony.
