I want to share a burden that I believe the Lord put in my heart for you.
Passion for the lost cannot be taught. It has to be borne in your heart by the Spirit of God. I trust God to pour the flames of the passion He has for the lost in the world into your heart.
Since the fall of man in the garden, all the operation of God on earth has been with the underlying goal of saving souls. If God will make you wealthy it will be with the goal that you will use that wealth to increase your capacity for reaching the lost.
If God will promote you in life, it will be with the goal that you will use the increased influence of that office to extend His kingdom. God will never bless you so you can be more comfortable without doing anything else! That is an unbalanced view of God’s blessing. God will bless you to make you a blessing!
I have come to believe that GOSPEL IS NOT TO BE PREACHED BY THE POOR BUT THE GOSPEL IS TO BE PREACHED TO THE POOR! The worst poverty in life is to be without Jesus.
No matter the state of a human being, if he is apart from Christ, he is classified a poor man by God and only the acceptance of the gospel makes him rich. Then he is qualified to take that same gospel to other poor souls.
I want to share with you SEVEN incontestable reasons why every believer should develop a passion for the lost.
REASON ONE: THE INESTIMABLE VALUE OF MAN
REASON TWO: THE GREATNESS OF THE HARVEST.
REASON THREE: THE FEWNESS OF THE LABOURERS
REASON FOUR: THE EXCLUSIVENESS OF THE MESSAGE
REASON FIVE: THE SHORTNESS OF THE TIME
REASON SIX: THE HARVEST IS READY
REASON SEVEN: IF WE DO NOT GIVE THEM THE GOSPEL, THEIR BLOOD WILL BE ON OUR NECK!
