What Makes Christianity Attractive?
Today's lesson comes from the pen of Adam Cozort, a gospel preacher and friend. He shared these excellent thoughts recently in a study, and I would like to share them with you at this time. I have only done a small amount of editing in addition to quoting the verses he cited for our mutual benefit.

What makes Christianity attractive? That is an important question to ponder. There is a great desire among disciples to make Christianity attractive to the world and to keep it attractive to those who are already a part of the body of Christ. So, how do we accomplish this two-fold goal? Consider eight things that make Christianity attractive:

1. Good works make Christianity attractive.

2. Love makes Christianity attractive.

3. Our speech makes Christianity attractive.

4. Unity makes Christianity attractive.

5. The Christian's peace of mind makes Christianity attractive.

6. Consistency makes Christianity attractive.

7. Devotion makes Christianity attractive.

8. Doing our best makes Christianity attractive.

Friends, did you n otice what is not on the list? Things like entertainment, "modernizing" worship through "contemporary" services, and acquiescing to man's desires and whims do not make Christianity attractive. They may draw men in for a while, but before long those same people are looking for something else because those things are empty and do nothing to help the soul.

If we want to make Christianity attractive, God has already shown us how, and time after time it is successful. Let us follow the plan that has been proven true for the last two millennia and leave behind the schemes and inventions of men. Let us stay true to God's word for He will always remain true to us (cf. II Tim. 2:10-13).
