Each time Easter comes around I am reminded of its true meaning. For lots of people, it’s a time of purity, of putting God first in their lives and thinking of Him and, oh, yeah, there’s a crazy abundance of chocolate bunnies and peeps! (Smile 🙂
suicide is senseless because God gave you the right to live. you don’t have the right to take it away. life is a gift. maybe you’ve only unwrapped half of it and found it wasn’t what you wanted. please unwrap the other half and wait to see what comes next. don’t take it for granted. don’t abuse it. please don’t kill it.
One of our favorite songs of all time is “Let It Be” by The Beatles.
Do not lie to each other. – Colossians 3:9
It is never right to lie – not to yourself, not to others, and not to God. People and culture and times may change, but the fact that ‘honesty is the best policy’ never will. It is always right to tell the truth, even if that truth may hurt. It is so much better to be wounded with the truth for a moment, then to be hurt with a lie forever. Most times, telling the truth seems to be hard because lying makes itself look so easy.
I like all three of the evangelism methods and will certainly try using all of them when I witness to others but I think the one that best suits me is Servant Evangelism.
Servant Evangelism is when Christians show God’s love by doing services that benefit others without expecting or accepting anything back in return. Steve Sjögren calls them a “conspiracy of kindness”. This is a great way to show unbelievers that Christians are not selfish and do not only do things for ourselves, but God’s love reaches far and wide and is for everyone. When unbelievers see God’s love in action, they may become more open to hearing and accepting His Son.
“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
― Shel Silverstein
