“PREACH THE GOSPEL ALWAYS——-IF NECESSARY USE WORDS”
As soon as I heard this a few years ago I knew it was my motto. I want my life to speak more for me than I need to speak in words. I wasn’t always a Christian and I remember being slightly offended by some that came across as pushy.
I was in my 20’s before anyone explained Gods plan of salvation through Jesus Christ to me. That doesn’t mean that I had never heard the name Jesus Christ…but it was not spoken in reverence when I heard it, if you know what I mean.
In fact I was in my 20’s before anyone ever explained to me about sin and the role that Jesus Christ played in dying as a sacrifice to make me acceptable. Acceptable? Yep, pure enough, clean enough…
Anyway, yes, I consider myself a Christian.
