Witnessing In Love
I wonder, if when we preach to others or witness, does the love of God come through?
I wonder if when we write of the glorious doctrines of God’s grace, does the love, compassion, and heart of God show forth, or harshness, vengeance, and judgment?
I wonder, if in our preaching and witnessing, do those to whom we witness detect not only a belief in what we are saying, but a love for what we believe, and a love for Him whom we believe, and a love for them who do not understand what we say.
It was His love that chose us!
It was His love that gave us repentance!
It was His love that gave us faith!
I do not suggest in any way, that we compromise our principles, or our message, or our doctrine, but that our message be tempered with the love and compassion of our Saviour!
Are sinners blind?
Were we not also there once?
Then why be angry with them?
