Use the worksheet to write out a version of Your Story. Remember you are not writing your personal testimony of how you became a Christian, but a fleshly character trait that has been transformed through a relationship with Jesus. Try to develop at least three versions based on three areas of your life that Jesus has transformed.
What are some areas of your life that have been changed since you became a Christian ? (If you became a Christian at a young age relate some lingering fleshly trait that God is transforming or something that he has changed in your life). Try to list 5 or 6 traits. Ask old friends to help you make the list, they probably remember !!______________________
Now add these to the formula below and you will have several versions of Your Story that you can used as the Holy Spirit leads. Try to make it simple. People will only listen to Your Story for about 3-4 minutes.
