p. 201 The gospel produces a constellation of traits in us: 1. We are compelled to share the gospel out of /love/.
2. We are /freed from the fear/ of being ridiculed or hurt by others,
since we already have the favor of God by grace.
3. There is a /humility/ in our dealings with others, because we know
we are saved only by grace, not because of our superior insight or
4. We are /hopeful /about anyone, even the “hard cases,” because we
were saved only because of grace ourselves.
5. We are /courteous and careful/ with people. We don’t have to push
or coerce them, for it is God’s grace that opens hearts, not our
eloquence or persistence or even their openness.
