Evangelism Tip 26

by Les Goertz on Thursday, November 28, 2013 2:06 PM
Love people on their terms.

This is so simple yet we trip over it.  Jesus loved people because of who they were, not for what He could get out of them.  They never felt manipulated in His presence.  His love was unconditional. 

Often the people who don’t qualify for our love because of their mess-ups are the ones we should love.  Conditional love means we set the terms.  If we set boundaries on our love we will miss opportunities.  Never disqualify a person because of age, socio-economic status, race, education, or lifestyle. 

People are still people, and we have the opportunity to love them without condition - it is powerful when we do this.
