The answer is what it has always been: God’s truth shared in LOVE and friendship, illustrated daily in the life of the one sharing the Gospel.
- Billy Graham
[To have FAITH in CHRIST] means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain way because a first faint gleam of Heaven is already inside you.”
― C.S. Lewis
Simply put, bearing fruit comes down to how we treat people. We fulfill our life’s purpose only as we begin to LOVE others as Christ has loved us. And we grow more Christ-like as our LOVE for others increases. Jesus said, “As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my LOVE” (John 15:9). His command is clear and simple: “Go and LOVE others. Give to others the unconditional LOVE I have shown you.”
- David Wilkerson
The depth of our evangelistic zeal will be in direct proportion to the LOVE we have. If you are not concerned about your neighbor’s salvation, then I am concerned for yours.
- Ray Comfort
Be still, and know that I AM GOD; I will be exalted among the nations” (Ps. 46:10).
PRAY for the PEACE of JERUSALEM! May they be secure who love you! (Psalm 122:6)
For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be CAUGHT UP together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. - 1 Thess. 4:16-17
