We Must Proselytize with Gentleness and Respect

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, (I Peter 3:15).

There is only one way to God, and true Christians know what that way is. We have a responsibility to tell everyone in the world about salvation in Christ, by grace through faith.

However, we must not be arrogant. We do not know the truth because we are smarter or inherently better than anyone else. We, ourselves, are the worst of sinners, but we have been changed by God’s grace and power. Therefore we must use great humility when we tell other people about the gospel. We must be gentle and show them that we do not consider ourselves to be “above” them. In all things we must display the love of Christ.
