Sharing our lives

As important as it is to share the Gospel with people, we must get to the place of true love where we share our very lives with others. This is where the rubber meets the road. It often gets messy and can be time consuming, but love takes work. Jesus has called us to live a life of love displayed in word and deed; a life of ministry that addresses the physical, emotional, and social needs of others while maintaining our eyes on the prize – spiritual transformation.

Here is how the Apostle Paul put it:
We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. – 1 Thessalonians 2:8
