Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

December 28, 2011 (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
