Showing Christ’s love through the church
September 6, 2012
And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
There are many ways that God can bring His message of salvation to a lost person. People come up to me often and ask me what the most effective method of evangelism is. And I’ll sometimes tell them, “The one that works!” And one that I’ve seen work very often is simply to invite others to church.
Why does it work? Because when lost people come to church, they see the body of Christ authentically loving God and loving one another. They see real worship, hear real teaching, and feel real love by those who have the love of God in them. They experience the real presence of the Lord!
Should we use personal evangelism? Yes! Should we show Christ’s love through serving others? Yes! These are wonderful ways to share the message and love of Christ with others. I pray we never neglect them!
But also get others involved in the ministry of your local church, where they can experience the love of God in and through the body of Christ. Involve them in worship and service. And above all else, let them see the love of Christ actively lived out in your own life every day.
INVITE OTHERS TO EXPERIENCE GOD’S LOVE BY VISITING AND GETTING INVOLVED IN A LOCAL CHURCH!

Get straight, biblical answers to questions our culture is asking!
A lot of people doubt the Bible has anything good to say – much less relevant answers to questions about things like same-sex marriage and abortion. But the truth is, the Bible contains the very words of God about these subjects and so much more.
That’s why I want to send you a copy of my popular series on CD called ‘Straight Up.’
Packed with the truth of Scripture, ‘Straight Up’ will give you the tools you need to give a loving and compassionate response to our culture about issues such as:
- Same-sex marriage
- God’s will
- And much more!
‘Straight Up’ is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim truth to our truth-hungry world. So please request it when you give today. Thank you!
