Jesus was a people magnet. I believe we can be too.
But only if we are living the gospel daily.
As Christians we receive the gospel, then often go right back and live “under the Law.”
Sadly, sometimes the Church promotes just such an attitude.
When we live like that, we make lousy company.
It would be the same as someone on death row being pardoned and set free going back to his prison cell to live the rest of his life. Paul speaks about that kind of thinking as he wrote to the church in Galatia.
He said, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
Tim Keller writes, “Christians need the gospel just as much as non-Christians.” @DailyKeller
If we live life daily in the gospel then we can experience God’s Spirit producing fruit our lives.
Life in the Spirit is one of love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self- control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
Life Through the Spirit
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
SO LET’S LIVE THE GOSPEL EVERYDAY, IT WILL MAKE US PEOPLE MAGNETS, DRAWING OTHERS TO JESUS.
