A thought for today on sharing the gospel

“We have too often reduced the glory of the gospel to bumper stickers, condemning slogans on T-shirts, and awkward quotes on church billboards. We have unthoughtfully pushed verses or tracts on those who have needed our time, love and attention more than a quick overview of our beliefs. And we have demanded that people clean up their lives before we introduce them to the boundless love of Jesus.”

from the book “Water Into Wine,” by Kelly Minter (Waterbrook Press, 2004)
