If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. (1 Corinthians 13:1)


When it comes to church and church growth, there is yet another indispensable asset a church must have.


 

Love


What are God 2 greatest commandments?

1. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all your strength.

2. The second is Love your neighbor as you love yourself.


These are God's two most important commandments. And they are a key to making disciples and growing a church.


When the pilgrims arrived in what is now Massachusetts they met a native who spoke English; Squanto. Squanto spent most of the rest of his life living with the pilgrims. He didn't just join them because they were on the traditional land of his ancestors, or just because he wanted to help them survive. Squanto stayed because he saw how much the Pilgrims loved one another, and they showed such love for him.


Over the centuries, in a world that often has trouble showing love, Christianity came and grew because it emphasized a universal language; love.


When working with other pastors who have grown their churches what do I hear? I often hear, “Love them into the church.”


Love opens doors. Love brings help, healing and wholeness. People who feel loved, and who love others, are not just happier people, they are usually healthier, live longer, are more productive, and give far more to the world than others. Love is something we need.


So when we love others we show give them one of the basic needs of life. We reveal God to people when we love.


So, probably the best form of Evangelism of all time is to do what Jesus did; go forth and love someone. Someone needs you today. Someone needs love and compassion now.


Give of yourself to others, and when you do you will find that you have also given to yourself. Loving someone else is part of what we are meant to do. It's what we are meant to be. It's God's gift to us that we are meant to give to others.


Today's lesson on evangelism: Love your neighbor as you love yourself.
