        The problem is that people don’t need to be witnessed to, they need to be loved.  And it just takes a few minutes to witness to them, but it takes deep down hard work and years and tears and heartache to love someone deep enough to heal their hearts and draw them close enough to God that he can get hold of them.

I completely agree with you on this one. “Drive-by” witnessing will not bring people to Christ. After all, the second greatest commandment is to love others.

Keep them coming.

On another note, what’s a guy gotta do to get some link love on your blog? I’m beginning to think you like everyone else around here except me. 🙂

It takes a deep commitment to love someone. It is much easier to preach than it is to love. A very true statement is, “Your actions speak so loudly that I can not hear what your words are saying.”
I agree that our job is only to love them so they can draw close enough to God that HE can get a hold of them.

Right on! My take on witnessing starts with a true, loving relationship. It’s almost as if one must “earn” the moment! It’s a God-moment, not a Me-moment.
