2/ There are times to put forth arguments for your faith, but telling your story works all the time.
3/ The way you deliver a message is a cue to how people will react.
4/ When you tell a story, you engage the listener, you involve them, you INVITE them to participate with you.
5/ Mike Cosper: We were made in the image of a storytelling God & he has commissioned an army of storytellers to tell his story.
6/ Focus and target your story.
7/ Your “faith story” does not have to be your “conversion story.”
8/ Your faith story is still being written, so there is still time to make it better and more compelling.
9/ Think seven conversations. Relax and plan to leave stuff unsaid.
10/ Leave the results to God. Some plant, some water & some harvest. You never know where you are in that process, and you can’t hurry it.
