sharing the gospel

“We are called to love others.
We share the gospel became we love people.
And we don’t share the gospel because we don’t love people.
Instead, we wrongly fear them.
We don’t want to cause awkwardness.
We want their respect, and after all, we figure,
if we try to share the gospel with them,
we’ll look foolish! And so we are quiet.
We protect our pride at the cost of their souls.
In the name of not wanting to look weird,
we are content to be complicit in their being lost.”
- Mark Dever
