DAY 22 SUNDAY: AUGUST 2021

HAVE GOD’S PASSION FOR THE LOST SOULS!

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

God expects every Christian to have His passion for the lost souls in life. He does not wish anyone to perish because He created us in His own image and likeness in life (Genesis 1:26). No one is qualified to go to hell because God loves us so dearly in life. In the opening text, the Bible says that for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to have a great passion for the lost souls in life. Soul winning is absolutely the heart and business of God in the affairs of men in life forever.

Everyone should take note of the fact that God loves him so dearly; He does not want him to perish in hell and be totally alienated from His presence in life. That is why the Bible says in 2 Peter 3:9, “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” Therefore, a Christian should never be slack concerning God’s promises but rather he is expected to exercise his absolute faith in Him by believing His promises in his life. Absolutely remember that God can never fail in His promises concerning man in life forever.

A Christian is expected to have God’s passion for the lost souls in life. He should not fold his hands and watch souls dying and going to hell. He should take note of the fact that God has called him into the ministry of reconciliation in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:18, “Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.” In fact, God had absolutely entrusted into the hands of a Christian the ministry of reconciliation, hence reconciling lost souls back to Him through Christ who is our Lord in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian should have God’s passion for the lost souls. He should not sit idle and watch souls dying and going to hell because he is specially called into the ministry of reconciliation in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And He said to them, “Go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15).
