Add Your Testimony

Facebook has a neat feature called “Notes” that can be used to share your testimony with others online. While status updates have limited capabilities, Notes lets you write full-length articles complete with text-formatting, tagging and pictures. To access Facebook Notes, you must first have this feature enabled on your Facebook account. To enable Notes follow these steps:

  1. Go to your profile page and underneath your cover photo click the “More” drop down section.
  2. If Notes is not visible, click “Manage” and check-mark the Notes
  3. Click on Notes, then “Add Note.”

Writing Your Testimony

{Recommended reading: Acts 22 & 26}
There are 3 essential elements to any testimony. When we look at the Apostle Paul’s testimony told in the book of Acts we can see these same three elements in his story.

  1. BEFORE CONVERSION
    Paul laid the foundation of his testimony by explaining who he was, where he was from, and how he lived prior to his conversion. These are all important elements to include as they help the reader (unbeliever) identify with you through your shared experiences. Paul also exposed his sin. He told how he persecuted Christians and consented to the death of Stephen the martyr. Notice that any gory details or unseemly facts are absent. It is not necessary to dredge up things that are better left forgotten.
  2. YOUR CONVERSION
    Tell about your conversion! Where did it happen? What brought you to the point of repentance? Paul tells us about his experience, the Word he received, and his response to the Lord.
  3. AFTER CONVERSION
    After Paul was converted, he tells us how he met with brethren and was baptized. Thereafter God gave him a mission (to be a light unto the Gentiles) and his testimony wraps up with his audience rejecting him (Acts 22:22) or being “almost persuaded” (Acts 26:28).
    Notice that in Acts 26, at the end of his testimony Paul asks, “King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets?” There should be a clear “call to action” at the end of your testimony. Paul compelled King Agrippa to believe; we should compel readers of our testimony to do the same.
