Today, in church, I was reminded of something that we have all probably heard before, but for some reason today it resonated deep within me.
God = the Word = Love
That means that giving the word of truth to our friends, family, and those around us – leading them to study and come to understand the word of testimony – is actually the greatest way we can show them the love we have for them. If we truly love others, then we would want them to know, believe, and accept this word of testimony that is available to us at this time.
There are so many negative connotations with “evangelists” and those considered to be “Bible-Bashers.” But we should not be those who bring fear and hatred, fighting and anger, rather, we should be those who bring love and peace, kindness and joy. The fruit we bear should be the Fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22).
“The greatest gift God gives, is the gift of his Word”
Let us be those who are born of God’s seed, His word of truth (James 1:18). And through our love for God and His word, we can bring the opportunity for love, joy, peace, and life to those we dearly love. What an amazing gift we can share with the world!
