Luke 5:32 (ESV) “I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”
Back in the late 70’s and early 80’s I spent some time at a church in Canada. On weekends we went to malls to talk to people about the Lord. We did a lot of finger pointing and saying things that were true but were hard for people to swallow. The reactions from people were disappointing. Although the things we said were biblically true, they were not effective ways to evangelize. Today I let my life, actions and decisions be a witness for Jesus (even though sometimes I am not the best witness). It’s my hope that people will see what Jesus has done for me, and how He’s remade me. When I became a new creation in Christ it took a while for my wife and daughters to truly believe that I was a changed man. There were times when a situation would come up and they would watch with wide eyes to see how I would react. They really were looking for evidence of my change. Seeing how anger was replace with love and caring made an impact with them. How do you share Christ best?
