Conversion is an enlarging, a deepening, and a broadening of the undergirding base of testimony. It is the result of revelation from God, accompanied by individual repentance, obedience, and diligence. ~ David A. Bednar

My Personal Testimony Of My Faith In Jesus Christ
By Bill Greguska
I first heard of Jesus Christ when I was a young boy of about seven years old while growing up. My parents took me to church every weekend and even put me in a church school instruct me which was were some of the fundamentals of my faith developed.
My faith in God was very frustrating to me because I learned about what was right and acceptable, but it was still sometimes hard for me to live it out in my life.
Then while growing up, the Lord allowed multiple difficulties such as a drug and alcohol problem, homelessness, and problems with the law all to ultimately understand how deep of a need that I had for God through these hard times I got myself in.
Alcohol And Drugs Were My Thorns In My Side!
There then was a period in my life that I got serious about my faith because God orchestrated that I would end up in long-term drug and alcohol rehabilitation for two years, in which I got the help I truly needed.
I attended both AA and NA for about 10 years during that time, yet even though it helped me to some degree, I found Elmbrook church which caught my eye through their open basketball program, basketball back then was fundamental to me, and was the carrot that got me into church again back in 1989 shortly after I got out of long-term treatment.
God Freed Me From My Bondage On June 25th, 1986
The church took me in and helped me to grow as a Christian under the teaching of Stuart Briscoe and the rest of the staff. I even got a job at Elmbrook as a custodian for four years. The seeds of faith were planted, and my roots were getting deeper by the things I was learning in God’s word over the years.
As a result of the experiences that God allowed in my life both good and also bad, gave me the awareness of my urgent need for God in my life! The rest of my story is a series of ups and downs, but this time God was in my life directing me, teaching me how to love Him, how to love others, and how to enjoy myself.
My born again faith started back on June 25, 1986, when I finally gave up drugs and alcohol, gave me a new opportunity to live my life for Jesus Christ.
God Put Strong Christians In My Life!
My life has not magically become perfect or even easy because I have become a Christian. And yes, I still sin, but since I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, I know my sins are now, and always forgiven.
My love for God for what he has done for me inspires me not to want to sin, but my sin nature makes that impossible for me to do, yet as I walk with the Lord, I know he is with me and guides me on the high road and through the narrow gate.
I know who created me, why I am here on earth, and that I have a purpose for my life which is to love and honor God and to love others because God has loved me first. I have the assurance that He will never leave me or forget about me because He loves me and I love Him and want to serve him out of gratitude for what He has done for me. ~ Bill Greguska
One Of The Best Testimonies About Jesus Christ!
How To Write Your Testimony And Plan To Share It.
- Write down the details of how you came to trust in Christ to save you.
- Who told you about Jesus Christ?
- What events led up to your trusting or believing in Christ?
- When did you first trust and believe in Christ?
- Where were you when you first believed?
- How has faith in Christ been a blessing to you?
- Next, write this out so that it flows well as a story. Try to be as concise as possible. As a goal, try to make the length of your testimony so that it can be shared in two or three minutes or less. Ensure that you have included the appropriate Scriptures in your testimony.
How To Share Your Story With Others?
One of the best ways that you can encourage another person is to share briefly with them what God has done for you in your life that they could relate to you which would be a source of encouragement to them. I would not advise that you would use the Bible as a hammer to beat in what they should know to live a better life, but rather to express what God has done for you which hopefully point them to want to know God more intimately.
When I talk to someone about my faith in God or life, in general, I usually give the person one of my NeedEncouragement.com business cards. I do not know how many people my cards effect positively, but I am sure God uses them to point people to Himself!
When Should You Share Your Testimonies!
You will see that when you share your story or try to encourage another person, you will find that you will be helped yourself. You will begin to enjoy helping others for these reasons that I have found to be true.
- When I help others, I feel that I have helped a fellow human being with a little effort of my own, allowing God to work through me.
- As I encourage others, I feel as though I get a sense of encouragement myself. So often I have been down, but when I try to help others, it seems to lift me right back up.
