O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. Psalm 105:1

Each Christian has his own story about how he came to know Jesus. Not all of these stories may seem like a bona fide water-turned-to-wine miracle—at least not to the people hearing them—but they’re all amazing in that they give an account of how Jesus came onto the scene, took what was once dead, and made it alive.

That’s just the nature of salvation, isn’t it?

The Bible tells you that you’re to always be ready “to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1 Peter 3:15). Among other things, that can mean being ready to tell others about how Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, brought you to a point of responding to God’s love and receiving forgiveness and eternal life. It can also include your story of healing and deliverance from what you once were.

When you begin talking to a friend or family member who needs Jesus, very often the best place to start is not by talking about how that person needs Him but instead by telling your own story of what He has done for you and how He has impacted your life.

Always remember, your story of salvation is an amazing story people around you need to hear.
