TEXT: ROMANS 10:11-15
11) For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12) For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14) How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15) And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
KEY VERSE: PSALM 40:9
I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
Passion for souls works heaviness and continual sorrow in the heart of a soul winner for those who are perishing without Christ. So, saints weep and mourn for perishing souls. Can you hear the mourning of a saint in the following scripture?
For these things I weep; mine eye runneth down with water, because the comfort that should relieve my soul is far from me: my children are desolate, because the enemy prevailed.
Are you not going to cry for your family that this old devil has prevailed against? Are you not going to cry for the churches that gather under falsehood? Are you not going to cry and say “Help O God, the devil has prevailed!” That old devil laughs anytime he gets a soul for hell. Are you not going to cry because the Church is running swiftly into the hand of the devil, the devourer? Are you not going to be concerned? Let us be concerned. Let there be heaviness in our hearts.
Why are we alone? Let me ask you: Is there any other place so clear that we can find the truth so solemn? Is there any other place so strong that we can find the power of God so real? Is there any other place that we can find the truth of God so unblemished? Is there any other one that we can find perfect exemplary life than in Christ Jesus? Why then are you sitting down quietly, seeing sinners dying and it doesn't bother you? Do you think that we are a political party? No! God has planted us to bring the world to Christ.
And again He said, whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
We are to leaven (swell, fill up, cover) the whole world to get them back to Jesus. You should arise to this business; arise to this duty! Make sure you open the eyes of those who are blind around you to see Jesus. Those friends in your school, convert them for Jesus. Those ladies around you, get them for Jesus. Those girls around your neighborhood, win them for Jesus. Let everyone of us be involved in the business of getting people to the Lord Jesus Christ. He wants to fill them with righteousness and holiness.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your passion for lost souls is a proof of your love for Jesus.
SONG FOR THE DAY: What a friend we have in Jesus….
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Job 38-39; Acts 15:1-21
