Robert Thomas on the Spiritual Growth of the Church

The Sunday feature of the Worldly Saints blog is all about quotes. No commentary from me, no reflection, etc. Just a provocative or informative quote from a saint in church history.

 

Thomas Robert“When Christians of any generation have been able to take their eyes off themselves and look to the needs of the rest of Christ’s body, they have witnessed remarkably rapid growth of the body. When unselfish devotion prevails, the lost are won and Christians are strengthened. Such evidence of love is an unmistakable mark of Christ’s follower, and it inevitably results in wholesome fruit. ‘By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another’ (John 13:35).’”

– Robert L. Thomas, in Understanding Spiritual Gifts
