Everywhere we turn our world is becoming more polarized. There is very little space for the mindful Christian to consider the complexity, beauty, and challenge of our everyday lives. We are asked to take a side, take a stand and be the loudest person in the room to be heard.
But this is not the way of Jesus. Jesus is winsome. He brought the Gospel with compelling attractiveness. He modeled all that was good and true and beautiful, while holding the conviction and compassion of God’s heart. He brought conviction without becoming combative. He brought compassion without compromising the truth and holiness of the Father he served.
To find our way forward, in our lives, our families and our communities we must rediscover his winsome way. It is my hope that God will raise up a generation of winsome warriors, proclaiming and reflecting the Gospel of Christ through the compassionate conviction of his Spirit.
