Random Thoughts and Gleenings 1

ON OUTREACH

Anytime you enter into a relationship for any reason other than friendship or actual relationship, you are just writing down the eventual date that the relationship will end. True relationship has to be about just that.
If we don’t have a genuine love for other people, we have probably forfeited our right to evangelize them! – Dave Black
People are never going to believe that God loves them unless they experience that love through you. – William Lane
We must call sin “sin.” but we can’t say, “deal with this first, and then we’ll deal with you.” – Chris Seay
However strongly we may disapprove of homosexual practices, we have no liberty to dehumanize those who engage in them. – John Stott
If you want to effectively reach out to the poor, you should stop acting as though you are a savior. Stop acting like you're "helping" him or her.
Evangelization is a process of bringing the gospel to people where they are, not people where you would like them to be. When the gospel reaches a people where they are, their response to the gospel is the church in a new place. -Vincent Donovan

The most effective outreach is not winning the souls of lost individuals and bringing them into our church. It is bringing Jesus to the lost person and establishing a new church within his household and social network.
