I Have Experienced Jesus..

I've been reading a book by Arthur Blessitt called "Give Me a J" it's a wonderful book filled with different expereinces that he has had as he carried the cross around the world.
One thing he said that I liked was this, "It isn't the length of the story or your story telling ability that matters most; it is your honesty about your experience with Jesus. That is so true. You don't have to have a drama filled testimony and it's ok if you do, but the main thing is you just want them to know that YOU have had an encounter with the risen Lord.

As Spring approaches there will be even more opportunities to share Christ, so now is a good time to get your experience with Christ on paper; try to keep it under 3 minutes or less and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you write it and then begin to memorize it. Have some key Scriptures memorized as well so you can give them a foundation and show them their need for a Saviour, and His willingness to Save them.

Arthur Blessitt said something that I intend to try as well. He said when his time is short with unbelievers he simply tells the person, "I have experienced Jesus." If they want to know more they'll ask, if they don't they will move on. One that I haved used is to actually ask the unbeliever,"Do you really believe that Jesus came and died?" Whatever the Holy Spirit gives you just trust Him and go with it. Be ready to give an account in 3 minutes or less for the "hope" that lies within you. Remember WE do the persuading God does the SAVING!

Be prepared, Be yourself, Be obedient and Be joyful

Prayer for Everyone
