ONE MINUTE WITNESS

IF I HAD NEVER MET CHRIST...

Imagine what your life would be like without knowing Jesus. That sounds frightening, doesn't it? You certainly wouldn't have the blessings you just described in A.D.

Let's wrap up your story with what your life might be like if you had never met Christ. When you speak, the listener will hear your heart.

Some people say their life would be empty, meaningless or still searching for purpose. Others say they would be in jail, on drugs, divorced, or even dead. Life would be radically different. When you're done, thank them for listening.

I am told the average person hears the Gospel 7 times before they give their life to Christ. Our immediate goal is not to win them to Christ, but to plant the seed of your testimony. Anything more than that is a bonus!

You can respond to their questions if they are open to talk more. Just don't get into a discussion over doctrine. The power of your story is simply sharing your heart. It's like the blind man who said, "I don't know much about this man who healed me. All I know is that I once was blind, but now I see" (John 9:25).

Finish this sentence, and write down your answer:
If I had never met Christ...

Can you repeat these five points by memory?
Good. Now share your five-point testimony with someone right away. The more you practice, the better you'll get, and you'll be down to a minute before you know it.
