Remember these words of Jesus --
"When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them,
They that are whole have no need of the physician,
but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous,
but sinners to repentance." (Mark 2:17)
1 John 4:7-11
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God;
and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us,
because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world,
that we might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us,
and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Let's just think about some facts for a moment.
Less than 20% of the world are Christians.
That leaves 80% of the world who are SICK with SIN!
And, you Christian, have the ONLY CURE!!
We cannot keep silent about the Gospel!!
Because it is "the power of God unto salvation"!!
(See Rom. 1:16)
And, though we cannot accept the sins of the world;
we can certainly love the sinners! (1John 4:7 above)
We can LOVE them INTO Christ!
TRUE Christian love is not just for other Christians!!
That is accepting the wisdom of men above the wisdom of God!
TRUE Christian love is to CARE ABOUT those who do not
know Jesus as Lord.
And, to care ENOUGH to TELL them!
God loved us, and SHOWED it by sending Christ to
die for the propitiation of of sins! (See Rom. 5:8)
Be a conduit!
SHOW the love of God that is IN you!
Show it by telling others of salvation through surrender to Jesus!
