You Can Make a Difference

Have you ever tried to get someone else to change a destructive behavior? It seems impossible, doesn’t it? People are resistant to change, and they tend to push back when they feel pushed by someone else. It seems impossible to get someone else to quit smoking, quit living together in adultery, or quit wasting money on lottery tickets and the slots. In the same way, it may seem impossible to reignite someone’s cold, dead faith.

But it can happen. Your God wants you to know that it is possible to bring someone back from spiritual suicide. You can influence positive change in another person. Your words and actions can make a difference.

“My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins” (James 5:19-20).

The most thrilling words you will hear in heaven are Christ’s, when he says, “Welcome home.” The second most thrilling phrase will be heard by those who turned a sinner from the error of his way, when he or she says, “Thank you for saving my life.”


Gay & God: Loving Everyone God Made and Everything God Wrote

Jesus wanted his people to be known for their love. But sadly, love is often the last thing homosexuals find in the church.

This brand-new resource from Time of Grace called Gay & Godshows youthe deep meaning and true significance of Jesus’ words, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”It also teaches you what the Bible actually says on the topic of homosexuality—and empowers you to show practically the love of Christ in a culture where being gay is the new normal.
