Honest Friendship

We have to give ourselves in honest friendship to people, if ever our relationship with them is to reach the point at which we are justified in choosing to talk to them about Christ and in speaking to them about their own spiritual needs - without being either discourteous or offensive.  If you wish to do personal evangelism, then - and i hope you do, you ought to - pray for the gift of freindship.  A genuine friendliness is in any case a prime mark of the man who is learning to love his neighbor as himself.  ~ J.I. Packer, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God
