2, How has God inspired your life?    Share something from your own experiences.  Tell what God’s been doing in your life. Keep it fresh & personable.  

3. Focus on just ONE Bible verse.  Keep things clear, focused, concise, and short!

4. Share one clear idea from the Bible verse.  Keep it short, memorable, and on target.

5. Find ways for your audience to come up with ideas to implement the Bible verse idea.  D

Don’t leave it in the abstract!  Let the audience take it home and put it into practice in their life.

FIND an application for that one key idea!
