YOUR Testimony: The Second Greatest Story Ever Told
Everyone who has put his or her faith in Jesus Christ has a unique story to tell. All God asks us to do is tell that story to others. What makes your story so unique is that there is not another story like it in the universe.
Whether you are working through this individually or as part of a group, this study will help you craft your personal story so that others can benefit from your experience being saved by the creator of the universe.
Your story may be simple; that's all right. Simple or complex, God wants to put people in your path who need to hear what you have to say. But we learn by doing.
I hope this Bible study provides you with the courage to tell others what you've experienced.
It is not verse memorization
It is not about complex diagrams
Open your mouth.
Tell your story.
Tell the second greatest story ever told because it's your story. At the moment, Doug is working with a new publisher to get the bible study back in print... more to come!
