Actions speak louder than words.
How do most non-believers view Christians today? Do they see evidence of a life that stands for something larger than the accumulation of material goods and self-fulfillment, one that has purpose, direction, and invites exploration? Or do they see nothing that makes being a
Christian particularly appealing?
We live in a time when calling ourselves Christians demands not only that we privately hold to a set of beliefs, but that we live out those beliefs in such a way that others want to know what makes us different. A life that demonstrates, identifies with, and stands for the truth of the gospel, regardless of personal cost, will have a contagious effect on those who are exposed to it.
