If you know Jesus, tell the world how you met Him.

It’s an incredible and life changing thing to encounter the risen Jesus. Those who do, have an amazing story to tell. People who have encountered Jesus have a powerful tool for telling others about Him–their story about how it happened.

Telling the story of how you first met the risen Jesus can change people from the inside out. Tell it far and wide.

Many people, even faithful church attendees, are unaware that Jesus is alive, present, and accessible to individuals today. I was an agnostic who was unaware of the reality of Jesus until I suddenly experienced Him when I heard two people tell how they had individually encountered Jesus. I was immediately changed from within. I’ve never been the same

If you’ve encountered the living Jesus, tell the amazing story. Don’t keep it to yourself. Telling the story (in a brief and direct way) of how Jesus changed your life can help other people encounter Jesus.

Sermons give a superficial understanding of Christianity. To really understand you must surrender to Jesus and experience Him daily. Sharing how you met Jesus and gave your life to Him helps people to surrender to the risen Jesus. Churches should train attendees to tell how they met Jesus and then have them practice telling it during the Sunday service.

Here are some pointers. People today are busy and often unwilling to listen for very long, so it helps to make your story short. Make it ABC: accurate, brief, and Christ centered. Quickly tell what you were like before you met Jesus, how you met Him, and how your life was changed by Him.

Here’s my story:

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
