If you follow the culture wars, you’ve no doubt noticed how toxic debate has become, even when Christians are involved.
Matt Brown’s answer to this disturbing trend is a thoughtful and engaging book, Truth Plus Love: The Jesus Way to Influence.
Brown was doing an interview for a podcast a few years ago when the pastor interviewing him said that Christians needed to tell people the truth and the truth is sometimes harsh.
“My response was that gentleness is a fruit of the Spirit,” Brown said. “We are walking in the flesh, not the Spirit, whenever we are not gentle and kind.”
As an evangelist, Brown knows that we need to model Christ’s love if we want to have an effective witness. “In a day when people feel like they can believe whatever they want, and no one is allowed to tell them otherwise, we need truth plus love more than ever,” Brown writes.
If you heed his message, you will find others eager to hear the good news of God’s grace.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
