<ul><li>Slide 1</li></ul> <p>If Anyone Speaks 1 Peter 4:11 Slide 2 The Gap Between what Christianity is and what others see Christianity as. IE: what you say and what others here you saying. Christian characteristics: Loving, peaceful, compassionate, dedicated, committed, selfless, merciful, forgiving How others perceive Christians: Hateful, arrogant, conflicting, judgmental, hypocritical, condemning, fanatical Slide 3 1 Peter 4:11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. Slide 4 If youre gonna talk Be careful what you say. Be careful how you say it. Slide 5 What would God say? speaks the very words of God I Love You For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17 Slide 6 I dont want you to be lost! God isnt late with his promise as some measure lateness. He is restraining himself on account of you, holding back the End because he doesnt want anyone lost. Hes giving everyone space and time to change. 2 Peter 3:9 But I will let you be if you so choose. I wont force you to follow me. Slide 7 Our Message (Of what do we speak?) God loves you He doesnt want you to be lost. (Message of Christ and His sacrifice.) He cant have sin in His presence. (Must repent) Slide 8 Be careful how you say it. speaking the truth in love Ephesians 4:15 if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. Galatians 6:1 Maybe our success in leading others to Christ has been hindered more by our attitude and approach than by the offensiveness of our message. Slide 9 Live it or dont bother saying it. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus Colossians 3:17 You may do more harm than good. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarmneither hot nor coldI am about to spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:15-16 </p>
