By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another (John 13:35).
Sometimes I think we get too caught up in the almost militant mission to convert people. We just assume this should be a light bulb moment rather than a process (remember even Saul’s conversion happened over a few days).
When that takes priority over loving people and walking with them, this (photo above) can become how we are seen and understood, how Christianity is seen and understood. Proselytizing or providing for a hurting nation, not mutually exclusive sometimes a choice between the two needs to be made.
My prayer today is that we show God’s love by our response and our love.
