Evangelistic Zeal Flows From Love to Christ

"In vain do we seek to awaken our churches to zeal in evangelism as a separate thing. To be genuine it must flow from love to Christ. It is when a sense of personal communion with the Son of God is highest that we shall be most fit for missionary work, either ourselves or to stir up others."
-Archibald Alexander

Amen. Why should a people having no true zeal for Christ pursue the spread of His cause? The prevalent brand of forced evangelism has marred, more than magnified, the image of Christ.
