“If Jesus is precious to you (as he is to the Spirit), you will not be able to keep your good news to yourself; you will be whispering it into your child’s ear; you will be telling it to your husband; you will be earnestly imparting it to your friend; without the charms of eloquence you will be more than eloquent; your heart will speak, and your eyes will flash as you talk of his sweet love … It cannot be that there is high appreciation of Jesus and a totally silent tongue about him …”
“If you really know Christ, you are like one who has found honey; you will call others to taste of its sweetness, you are like the beggar who has discovered an endless supply of food: you must go tell the hungry crowd that you have found Jesus, and you are anxious that they should find him too.”
“Every Christian here is either a missionary or an imposter. You either try to spread abroad the kingdom of Christ, or else you do not love him at all.”
Convicting, piercing words that are challenging me …
How about you?
You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9 (ESV)
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides IN him, and he IN God. 1 John 4:15 (ESV)
