Jesus said, “I’m here to invite outsiders, not coddle insiders.”
In leadership character has always mattered.
God says hard words because he is calling us to a life that calls others to a life that the culture does not want.
When is the right time and where is the right place for us to live godly lives and share the gospel? Anytime and anywhere.
“Because Jesus is good news and Jesus is in me, I am good news.”
The Old and New Testaments bear witness to these two vital testimonies to God—the external witness of creation and the internal witness of God’s law.

Never confuse your role as a witness with the role of the Holy Spirit.
Defending the faith has nothing to do with our position with the other person, but everyting to do with our position in Christ.
