Yes, whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so he will let me tell him about Christ and let Christ save him. 1 Corinthians 9:22 TLB

We know what real love is because Jesus gave up His life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16 NLT
