When I share my two-minute testimony with a friend or even a stranger, I keep it short and concise, ensuring that I don’t bore them with unnecessary details. The key is to focus on the transformative power of Jesus in my life. Before encountering Christ, I was lost and searching for meaning. Life seemed like an endless maze without any purpose or direction. But then, Jesus came into my life like a beacon of hope, shining His light into the darkest corners of my existence. Through His love and grace, everything changed for me.
Jesus brought healing where there was brokenness; He mended the shattered pieces of my heart and restored joy where there once were tears. In moments when despair consumed me, He lifted me up and gave me strength to face any challenge that came my way. The emptiness inside me was filled with His presence, filling every void and giving meaning to each breath I took. The difference Jesus made in my life cannot be expressed in words alone; it is something felt deep within the core of who I am. He became not just a distant savior but a close companion who walks beside me every step of the way. With Him by my side, fears are conquered, doubts fade away, and dreams become possible realities. Just think for a second about all those times when God has delivered you from troubles in your own life – big or small miracles that shaped your journey thus far. It only takes two minutes to share this powerful testimony with someone. Here are the 3 points to keep in mind. 1. Tell them how your life was before Jesus? 2. How Jesus came into your life? How was your life changed because of Jesus? Focus mainly on the difference Jesus made in your life! Just think for a second; God has delivered you and me from many troubles in our lives, and it takes only a two-minute testimony to help someone understand the importance of a relationship with Jesus Christ. Do you have something you can share with someone on a short elevator ride to encourage them and point them to the Lord. ~ Bill Greguska
Psalm 119:1-3 Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the Lord. Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart; they do no wrong but follow his ways.
A Good Two Minute Testimony Is Short And To The Point!
Testimonies Can Boost Your Faith!
Testimonies Can Not Be Argued. It Is Your Story!
1. Use your friendship to get your foot in the door.
Could you make it known that you care about the person? Let your friendship be the inspiration of your witnessing to them.
2. Be for real
Let the person know that you are a believer in Jesus Christ. You do not want to appear deceptive or coercive. Be yourself. Remember that your story (testimony) can not be argued with because it happened to you.
3. Ask them some questions about how much they know about Jesus.
This way, you do not have to tell them something they already know. This can be an excellent way to steer the conversation to a dialog rather than a speech.
4. Share your testimony in less than 5 minutes. (Ideally, a two-minute testimony)
The reality of God in your life is a powerful witness. Hearing how you became a follower of Jesus or how God answers your prayers can increase their curiosity. Keep it under 5 minutes to keep their interest (preferably two minutes).
5. Make sure to use a few scriptures to support your claim.
Don’t be afraid to answer questions with a verse from the Bible. Explain things in an everyday type of conversation, don’t use words that are hard to understand or speak in Christianese (talk only Christians only know and use)
6. Be prayerful and persistent
Don’t be put off if you receive an adverse reaction at first. You should expect it. Keep looking for opportunities. Keep praying. Seek to introduce your friend to other believers, ask them if they need a Bible or also lend books or other evangelistic literature to them, and invite them to do things with you that they would enjoy to strengthen your friendship and to be able to walk with them in their faith. (known as friendship evangelism). Treat the other person with respect as you would want to be treated.
7. Ask them to decide on what you have shared, and no matter what, follow up within a week.
Don’t think your friend will automatically understand they need to pray to receive Christ. If they are an eager listener, you should ask if they are willing to accept what you have said for themselves. Be diligent in following up on any decision. Help them get grounded in a local Bible-believing church.
