We are not just messengers in our presentation of the gospel. We are also to serve as witnesses.

“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death” (Rev. 12:11).

The story of Paul’s conversion is told three different times in the book of Acts. It is first recounted in chapter nine. Later Paul retells the story to the lynch mob in Jerusalem in front of the Roman barracks in Acts 22. The third time was two years later, in Acts 26. Paul spent those years in prison in Caesarea. He gave his testimony to the governor Festus, and to King Agrippa and his sister Bernice in an audience room with high-ranking officials and the leading men of the city.

I encourage you to write out your own testimony. Use this testimony to give the saving message to people whose eyes are already open and who are hungry for the light of the gospel. Tell what you were like before, when you first became interested in Christianity, how you heard or read the gospel, when you made a decision, and the results. Then send it to someone who is not a Christian and tell it to people often.
