Thursday: Twenty-First-Century Runners — 3 Comments

  1. We can argue the case for Christianity all we like but if we do not live a life that has been changed by the Gospel our witness in simply not going to work. I have had far too many discussions and arguments with unchurched folk to the extent that now I avoid such arguments as fruitless. We must learn to live the life of Christ living within us. If we do, then we have a message more powerful than any erudite argument that we can raise.

    If we do not reflect the love of Jesus to those around us, Christ may as well not be risen. He has to “rise in our lives” for the Gospel to be effective.

    The early disciples must have captured that spirit because it is recorded that:

    Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13

    Do people describe us as having been with Jesus?

    • You know. Your second sentence is how I want answer today's last question.
      And here I thought I wanted to answer with: daily prayer and worship time, together, is the only way.

  2. I like what the writer says about sharing the good news about christ, that we could only share the good news unstoppably and spontaneously if our hearts are embedded within the word of God and experience the filling of the holy spirit in us, cause only then does our message even hold strength and do we have the boldness to share it if we are not doing it out of maybe what we think suits us as Christians nor trying to extend our own image other than that of CHRIST.
