“[We] declare the wonderful deeds of him who called [us] out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
-1 Peter 2:9
We must expect to evangelize. If we do, it means that we are prepared. St. Peter tells us, “Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you.” (1 Peter 3:15). One of the best ways to have our “defense” ready is to prepare our testimony. It is simply our personal story of God’s action in our life.
A guest I once interviewed said that he starts his morning prayer by asking God to send him people to evangelize throughout the day. Imagine what this world would be like if all Catholic faithful prayed this prayer–and then followed through on it! The world would be transformed.
This weekend, prepare your testimony. How has God acted in your life? Then, next week, ask God to send you people to evangelize.
