If there is a true faith, there must be a declaration of it. If you are a candle, and God has lit you, then let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in the heavens (Matthew 5:16).
This is the bright truth held before us in this little book – if we sow good seed, we will reap a great harvest. While sowing and caring for the seed sown isn’t without work, the promise of a great harvest is what keeps us going and what brings joy to our labors.
The objective of the Christian ministry is to convert sinners and to edify the body of Christ. No faithful minister can possibly rest short of this. Applause, fame, popularity, honor, and wealth – all these are vain. If souls are not won, and if saints are not matured, our ministry itself is futile.
Fear is the greatest block to the freedom of love and life.“Fearless love” means less fear and more love. It is the essence of courage. Our hope is that the fruit of this book will produce a fearless love to help you enjoy the journey of an obedient life that God intends for all His children.
The Christian desire to honor God and be faithful to him is the most important reason for learning and practicing what is ethical. For this reason, living an ethical lifestyle will not be done out of an attitude of sacrifice, but out of a feeling of appreciation and desire for God’s will.
