A strained, forced recitation of truth because "I ought to" rarely does much to convince anyone.
Neither does an argumentative, sarcastic debate. And really, even being given something out of pity can be offensive to many.
And few of those methodologies produce much action or growth on the part of the initiator. But . . . even I (infamously private about the things I'm passionate about) will tell someone about the things I can't imagine living without, how they make my life 200% better. And telling someone about how good those things are, well, it makes me want to go spend more time doing them, too.
How long before I will let myself love Jesus enough that I can't imagine life without Him?
And love Him enough that He's something I can't imagine anyone else living life without?
