We are not telling them (neighbors, coworkers, etc.) to transform their lives or to adopt a self-help program. We are not even holding up our own experience as the big news that should move them to accept Christ. They should not believe what we are reporting simply because they see that it puts a smile on our face or a spring in our step. We are just announcing the headline: “There is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1). The news speaks for itself!
