THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: DO YOU HAVE A BURDEN FOR SOULS? Is there room in your heart to care about the lost condition of humanity? This is a legitimate question to ask and you need to ask it of yourself. Whatever your station is in life, married/ single/ business owner/ tradesman/ housewife/ student etc…our primary objective should be, must be reaching the lost before the end comes…and it is coming. There must be an urgency about the task of taking the Gospel from our neighborhoods to the nations. Every one of us has a significant role to play in that great endeavor…what we call THE GREAT COMMISSION…to ‘GO INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL’ We all have ambitions, personal wants and desires and of course there is nothing wrong with that. We should all be driven to live a full and productive life with Jesus Christ at the center. WE MUST PRAY FOR THE COMPASSION OF JESUS CHRIST TO BE IMPARTED INTO OUR HEARTS DAILY. It is love, love for God and a love for souls that should be the driving force in our lives. So, today ask yourself the question; DO I HAVE A GENUINE AND REAL BURDEN FOR THE LOST? Then, pray for His love to be imparted. That should be a daily prayer…otherwise we will all drift into self interest. Ultimately all that’s going to matter is what we do for Jesus Christ, to build His church and advance His interests on earth. [2 Peter 3:9] “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward us, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE.”
