Jesus Christ gave of Himself as no one before ever could and no one since has and as no one ever will. He did so out of love and because He acted out of love, His children, the Christians, also act out of love. The love of Christ for a lost and dying world is the source of the love that is the defining feature of Christianity. When a Christian speaks as truthfully and as fearlessly as their Savior did, they, like He, speak out of love, telling the truth, no matter how painful or uncomfortable or distrubing it may be, because they love those they speak to as Jesus does. They do so for the same reason that Christ did, so that all might hear the truth and be saved. Christian love is about carrying the message of the good news of Jesus Christ and the Salvation He blesses all those who accept Him as Lord and Savior with. The Christian speaks the truth of Jesus Christ out of love because to do otherwise would be to speak out of hatred and thus betray the mission, message and ministry of the one who spoke — and continues to speak — out of love for all the children He created.
