thought for the day…

Tim and I have been reading a great book called “Tangible Kingdom” written by authors Hugh Halter and Matt Smay. Here is a quote that smacked me right between the eyes:

“…what drew people to Jesus, surprisingly, was not his message. It was him. His face, the softness in his voice, the whimsical look he gave the children, how he laughed, and how he lived. His message repelled people. Many people who were drawn to him as a man would leave after he let them in on the message. This is quite a switch for most of us. We try to draw others by soft-pedaling the message and end up repelling them by how we live our lives.”

Wow! Let that sink in for a minute and tell me that doesn’t convict you!
