I’d like to share with you a section from the book, Jesus Our Great Hope. It is very good.
“Hope, like enthusiastic Christianity, is contagious. If you enjoy a hope-filled, life-altering relationship with God, that relationship will have an impact on others-perhaps a profound impact. Are you genuinely excited about your faith and your future? And do you make your enthusiasm known to those around you? Or are you a ‘silent ambassador’ for Christ? God’s preference is clear: He intends for you to stand before others and proclaim your faith. Does Christ reign over your life? If so, then it’s time to share your testimony, your hopes, and your enthusiasm. The world needs all three.”
