TEXT: ROMANS 10:1-3 1Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.2For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.3For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
Key Verse: Lamentation 12:16. For these things I weep; mine eye, mine eye runneth down with water, because the comforter that should relieve my soul is far from me: my children are desolate, because the enemy prevailed.
The judgment of God is surely coming upon sinners. When you see your relations, and know that this particular relation of mine shall be damned in hell forever and ever; that this my father shall be damned
in Hell; this my mother shall be damned in Hell; this my goodly neighbour shall be damned in Hell; you look round and consider that judgment is surely coming upon the sinners because of the wickedness and evil of their way, there must be concern in your heart. And bearing in mind the little you know of hell – the sufferings of hell, the crying, the agony and eternity of hell – when you look back and see a man in his car with a prostitute “enjoying” life, do you just sit down and do nothing? When you see a woman in trousers moving on the street, there should be a burden, a concern for her.
If you consider that children who are in the age of accountability go to hell
too; you see that hell is waiting for them for their stubbornness, witchcraft and wickedness, it disturbs your heart, it troubles your mind. That is the passion. This is expected of you as a soul winner. There is the free gift of salvation and eternal life in Christ. When you now see the gift of God, that these people can be saved; that this man or woman (though very troublesome) can become a renewed and godly person; that this woman that people are running away from because she is a witch, can be a nice, transformed and noble woman in the things of God; when you see that because of the gift of God in Christ Jesus and the salvation freely given, these people can be saved, you feel concerned and troubled in your heart, that was the passion apostle Paul felt for souls. He was so troubled because they said they were serving God already but did not know His righteousness. They were not born again. They served zealously but not in the right way. They did not find Christ and could not escape the judgment.
Thought for the day:
Show sympathy to sinners as Jesus had sympathy on you
Song for the day:
Who will tell them that Jesus died for sinful world?
Bible reading for the day:
Deuteronomy 20-22; Mark 14:26-50
