Christ's Method Alone

A key verse for outreach is "Christ's method alone".

Christ's method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Saviour mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, "Follow Me."
- Ellen White, The Ministry of Healing, p. 143

It has to be genuine. It can't be faked.

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
- Romans 5:5 (KJV)

The method is always the same, but the way you engage people can be just about anything these days.
