In this book, co-authors Daniel Hames and Michael Reeves argue that an individual’s relationship with God influences their evangelism and missions more than anything else. Scripture clearly shows that a believer’s responsibility is to make God known in the world, but this cannot be done without first knowing and enjoying God Himself. When believers focus on the glory of the lamb of God, the gospel will shine through them. This book takes us to the heart of the biblical motivation of sharing Christ: a proper vision of our great and glorious God. The more we are overflowing with a love for God, the more we will reach out with the gospel to others.
