When humble Christ-followers talk about their love for Jesus, you can sense His presence. I love to meet people who radiate the presence of Jesus. I find them in the humblest places (and in the humblest churches).
Heart-felt humility aligns us with God’s favor. “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
Your love for God is no stronger than your willingness to treat all people well. The more you love God, the better you will treat people. When you deeply appreciate life, you will radiate love and joy.
The most effective evangelism happens not from programs, but when Christians begin to radiate the presence of the risen Jesus. Sometimes the best thing you can do for people is to give them a radiant hello, soaked in Christ’s love.
The best ministry is the ministry of the Holy Spirit. We’re all invited to daily surrender to and experience the Spirit’s ministry. When I’m in control, the Holy Spirit isn’t. To be “led by the Spirit” (Romans 8:14), we must let the Spirit take control.
