Love First

Love First

We can easily get to thinking that we need to convince or convert others to become Christians. But this is a misconception. First, our love for Christ must work its wonders inside of us! We must walk so closely to Jesus that His love can be seen welling up in us. The power of the risen Savior should be so evident through our lives that others will want to know God too! This is the Christian testimony. Only those who pursue the Lord to the extent where His love can be seen in us will have anything worth giving. The rest is just religion.

 

Anyone who hopes to have the people he is teaching make a transition from passive listening to active loving, must teach and witness primarily out of his own personal adventure of faith.  Keith Miller (A Second Chance)
