What does it mean to be a good neighbour? Does it mean keeping your dogs from barking at night and lending your neighbour eggs when they run out? Or, is it a higher calling? Chuck Swindoll describes the biblical standard for neighbourly love in this message.
Many of us want to share or pass on our faith to our kids, our grandkids, our friends, and any others God brings across our path. But when we think carefully about it, do we understand what we’re trying to achieve? If not we can easily and unwittingly undermine our efforts.
Because faith in Christ isn’t about morality, doctrinal precepts, or church traditions, sharing our faith is not about passing on a set of morals, doctrines, or church traditions.
Instead, we want to pass on love for the Lord. By changing our question from how do I pass on my faith to others? to how do I live so as to cultivate a love for Christ in others? we shift our focus.
What’s the key to winning people for Christ? Is it a convincing argument or an emotional church service? Perhaps a specific formula of verses and prayers? In this message, Chuck Swindoll explains the most important factor in evangelism.
If you know Jesus Christ and you’ve heard the truth then you know it has got to be shared. If you give it away, the message stays fresh.
What a relief it was the day God convinced me that He doesn’t hold me responsible for how people respond to the Gospel. He holds you and me responsible for giving and living the Gospel; what someone does with it is His business.
Believe it or not, your personal testimony is one of the most powerful and compelling tools God has given you in reaching nonbelievers with the Gospel. Now, I’m not talking about the common, garden-variety, churchy “braggamony.”
Counterfeits are skilled at deception. Spotting a counterfeit requires discernment. Discernment comes from knowing God’s Word.
We may not be able to reach millions of people, but we can impact our neighbour...our co-worker...our friend. Reaching the world starts with just one person.
You may only be one person, but you can still make a difference. So, please, make a difference! God has opened a door for you. It’s open right now. Find it. Walk through it. Don’t hesitate.
Paul’s relationship with Timothy goes back to Paul’s earliest days as a missionary. Paul and Barnabas visited Timothy’s hometown of Lystra on Paul’s first journey around AD 47.
