Chosen by God!
“For everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord [invoking Him as Lord] will be saved.” (Romans 10:13 AMPC)
"For it was only through this wonderful grace that we believed in him. Nothing we did could ever earn this salvation, for it was the gracious gift from God that brought us to Christ! So no one will ever be able to boast, for salvation is never a reward for good works or human striving." (Ephesians 2:8-9 NLT)
I support telling people about Jesus and His unconditional, everlasting, unfailing love for them, while leaving everything else to the Holy Spirit! The best way to do that is to open up communication and shut down condemnation.
Yes, sin is sin but until people know Jesus they aren't equipped to deal with their sin. I'm starting with Jesus. I'm going to sow a seed, or water a seed while trusting God for the increase. If you don't show people you care you won't be able to show them Jesus.
When Jesus met the woman at the well, He started a conversation instead of leading with condemnation. He gave her hope and then He told her about her life. Why not do the same? Give people hope. Jesus got results and so can we if we do it His way!
