How to Love People into God’s Family 
By Rick Warren

“Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.” Psalm 40:3 (NLT)

Because of Jesus, you can have your past forgiven, have a purpose for living, and have a home in heaven. Telling others about this hope you have in Jesus is the most loving thing you can do. 

When people see the difference Jesus makes in your life, it has an impact. The Bible says, “Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD” (Psalm 40:3 NLT).

Yesterday, we looked at three practical steps to help you share the hope of Jesus. Here are three more:

Listen first. Every person on this planet has a deep hunger to be heard, to be understood, and to have their feelings validated. Proverbs 18:13 says, “Listen before you answer” (GNT). Your ear is a great tool for showing love to someone. When you listen to another person, you can find the key to their heart.

Share your stories. Notice I said “stories,” not “story.” Why? Because you have many stories, or testimonies. A lot of people think they only have one testimony—the testimony of how they came to Christ. But has God ever helped you with a financial, relational, or health problem? You have hundreds of powerful testimonies that can point people to Jesus. 

Bring people to worship. One of the best ways you can share the Good News is to bring people to church. As they walk into a service, they will see many believers coming together, worshiping God, and believing the same thing. Acts 2:47 says, “At the same time, they praised God and had the good will of all the people. Every day the Lord saved people, and they were added to the group” (GW).

Most people don’t know about the hope that Jesus Christ gives, and so they are spiritually empty. What step can you take today to bring someone into the family of God?
