Christianity did not spread because of its message; it spread because of what Christians did.
If you were asked to summarize the Good News of Jesus in one word, what would it be? For me, I think “love” would be at the top of my list. Words like victory, resurrection, and restoration would also be pretty high on the list.
The early church summarized the Gospel message with a much different word: suffering.
Throughout history, God has called His people to be different; to live in a way contrary to what the world thinks is normal.
I am convicted that the biggest deterrent to Christianity is social media. It’s not from what others say about Christians. It’s about what Christians post on social media says about themselves.
