Attitude of Love posted by John Sorensen on Sep 04, 2015
As believers in Jesus Christ, we want to be messengers of the Good News – winsome in our approach.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. When we share our faith, we don’t want to come across as self-righteous. Maybe you’ve seen other believers harbor that attitude when they share their faith, and so you remain quiet. Instead, we need an attitude of love for the lost that permeates our being. Jesus is our Perfect example. He cared deeply for hurting and lost people. He listened to them intently and responded to their deepest need. In the famous love chapter of first Corinthians thirteen, Paul says that if we do not have love then we don’t have anything.
So, while the message of God’s truth might offend some, it should never be because of an annoying messenger. We can help you share your faith at ShareLife.today, where you’ll find free tools, tips, and other Gospel resources to help you be a better – even winsome – witness.
