Sharing the gospel is an art form in its own right, and to be effective takes the workings of the Holy Spirit. A person is evident by their fruit.

Sharing the gospel is similar to the neighbor’s music being too loud: if I knock on your door yelling while condemning, the music is Satan-filled heavy metal. Will you listen to me?

What if I knock politely, explaining the music is too loud? Please turn it down. Would you then lower it?

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

The Apostle speaks that without love, we are a clanging cymbal. Why does Paul say that?

Because condemning words having no empathy or self-control in terms sounds like noise to anyone listening.

It’s like having the neighbor slamming the door in our face; still, the music blares. So when speaking regarding the Gospel, that person could die in their sleep unsaved.

John 3:17: For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

James 3:1: Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.

It’s simple Jesus saves, and through the Gospel, His written Word souls are led to Christ. Whereas those preaching without the Holy Spirit and a Spirit of condemnation become a detriment to the ears of all who mishear it.

Galatians 5:22-23: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith. 23 Meekness, temperance: against such, there is no law.

I encourage each of us to take a long hard look in the mirror because daily introspection and repentance are the keys to the Dawn of each new day—a brand new and refreshed way of seeing things through Christ.
