The Apostle Paul: “This is my Testimony” (Acts 22)
If you are a Christian, your testimony – the story of how God stepped in and changed you through His Son – is a direct reflection of the indisputable, life-changing power of the Gospel.
First Peter 2:9 lovingly explains:
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
WRITE IT DOWN –
Section A is your life before you became a Christian –
Section B explains how you became a Christian –
Section C describes your life since meeting Jesus –
The apostle Paul gave us a great example of this very exercise in Acts 22.
In Acts 22:3-4, we find Paul’s “Section A,” –
Paul’s “Section B,” where he explained how he got saved, is found in verses 6 and 7. Here is his testimony:
WHO WAS YOUR ANANIAS IN YOUR OWN SALVATION STORY?
His “Section C,” was filled with many hardships and challenges, but also with great miracles and teaching.
As you write down your “Section C,” ask yourself:
– Who am I now in Christ?
– How is this in contrast to who I was before?
– How has God changed me?
– How is He glorified in me?
– What fruit is displayed in my life? (See Colossians 1:10 and Galatians 5:22-26)
– How is the work of the Gospel evidenced in my life?
WHY IS THIS A GOOD EXERCISE?
If you would like to see the most powerful tool of evangelism besides the Gospel itself, just look in the mirror.
