marks of the messenger

book coverI just finished reading this great book. It is short, fast, and enjoyable to read. I am working on getting a copy for every household in our church.

It is called Marks of the Messenger and it is written by J. Mack Stiles.

On the last chapter, I wept big wet tears, and I prayed fervently that God would use me, my family, and our church to bring people to Jesus.

Here are some quotes:

“This provides with a check to our evangelism: if many are responding to Jesus, but few are changed, we can be sure there is something wrong with our evangelism.” (page 77)

“We forget that for those who suffer, our answers are better than any the world has ever offered.” (page 65)

“To be a healthy evangelist you must stand against me-centered love by demonstrating self-sacrificing love.” (page 98)

“Move from a love that is self-indulgent to a cross-centered, self-sacrificing love– a love that is in line with the message we share. Demonstrate love with the sacrifice of your life.” (page 99)
