We Never Divorce the Two

July 22, 2010

Should Christians busy themselves with healing the sick, caring for the environment, pursuing issues of justice, helping the weak?  Or should we just stick to sharing the gospel?

We share the good news always open to doing good, and we do good always with the hope of sharing our faith.  We never divorce the two.  If we get nothing in return, it’s okay because it is the nature of love.  But do not forget that seeing people come to Christ in the midst of suffering and injustice is to do the greatest good we could ever do.  (J. Mack Stiles, Marks of the Messenger, 69)
