You can never force a person to believe in Jesus or using scripture to threaten backsliders to come back to church. This is not the way of Kingdom life. Kingdom life is to walk according to God’s Word personally which is His lamp to our feet and light to our path. Psalm 119:105. Remember souls would only be attracted to the light of salvation through faith, by hearing and seeing the gospel of love, in actions and behaviour.
“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:5-7.
Learn not to judge or condemned quickly like the world but hear them out to discern their challenges with emotional pain, sins or bondages. Christ’s Love is the way of Kingdom Life. His Love creates large spaces for conviction, forgiveness, and transformation, for once I was lost, but now I am found. Luke 15:24.
To God be the glory!
With Love Always,
