There seems to be a common theme running here. Sometimes it seems that Christians are so concerned with what the Bible says about sinners that they fail to realize most passages in the Bible deal with how Christians should act and behave. More people will come to Christ by seeing how we comport ourselves then they will through actual preaching. I know in my case that it was how certain Christians acted (having a strong faith, being kind to others) that in initially drew me to Christ.
“Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard [the gospel], lest we drift away from it.” – Hebrews 2:1
“Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.” – Hebrews 3:6
“Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.” – Hebrews 3:12-14.
“Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? —unless indeed you fail to meet the test!” – 1 Corinthians 13:5
