Outreach Ministry: Consideration & Compassion Showcase God's Love for People
Outreach ministry must get beyond words to a demonstration of God's heart. God calls us to be salt and light in this world which serve as good illustrations of how consideration and compassion showcase His love for people.
As the Salt of the Earth We Demonstrate God's Heart of Compassion
"You are the salt of the earth." (Matt. 5:13)
- Consideration and compassion bring out the essence of the Gospel of love so sprinkling some love on those who don't know Him makes the message seem tastier.
- Consideration and compassion create a thirst for more.
Being Considerate and Compassionate as a Way to Be a Light in This World
"You are the light of the world. . . . let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." (Matt. 5:14-16)
- Consideration and compassion attract attention.
- Consideration and compassion warm the heart.
The Outreach Ministry Manual briefly expounds on these each of the above points, also providing some Scripture and questions to help you further think through the implications of being salt and light in these ways to demonstrate God's heart to others.
