Attractive Evangelism

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- April 7, 2011

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35

Love is irresistible for those in search of a Savior. Everyone whose heart aches for authentic relationships will take notice when they see Christians love one another. Parents who encourage and build up their sons and daughters are a magnet to the friends of their children that live lonely lives in a discouraging and disrupted home environment.

Have you thought of your home as a sanctuary for seeking souls? Every time a neighbor drops by, a friend stays overnight or you host a party for your child’s team—you have an opportunity to model the love of Jesus toward those you know and to those who you meet for the first time. Leverage love for the Lord and He will draw people to Himself.

“Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality” (Romans 12:13).

Being a disciple of Jesus does have its benefits, and being loved is close to the top. When you placed your faith in Christ, you became a giver and receiver of Christian love. So, don’t resist the righteous care that Christ’s followers extend on your behalf. Be glad that you can model for those around you the love of God’s children that can melt the hearts of outside observers. Why—they ask—do people give so much expecting nothing in return?

How do you intentionally love your brothers and sisters in Christ? Do you share relationships, money, your vacation home, your primary residence or your car? It may be showing up during a health issue, praying for a job interview, babysitting their little one or mowing their grass. Unbelievers take notice when believers lavishly love each other.

“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love” (Galatians 5:13).

Our capacity to love is only limited by the Lord’s capacity to love on us, to love in us and to love through us. His love removes our insensitive heart and replaces it with sensitivity. The Almighty’s agape love arranges our priorities around the needs of others first and ours second. His love first comforts pain in people—then waits for the appropriate time to administer truth. This level of unconditional love is a conduit for the lost to know Christ.

“Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us” (1 John 4:11-12).

Am I receiving God’s love? Who do I know that needs my unselfish love and attention?

    I am the proprietor of JustCBD Store brand (justcbdstore.com) and am looking to develop my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain can help me 🙂 I thought that the most ideal way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd stores. I was hoping if anybody could recommend a qualified web site where I can purchase CBD Shops Business Mailing List I am presently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the most ideal choice and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
