Be passionate For The Christless

Be passionate

For The “Christless” !

 

 

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance

(2 Peter 3:9).

 

In writing to the Christians in Ephesus, the Apostle Paul, in Ephesians 2:12-13 took time to describe the gloomy picture, and abysmal hopelessness of their previous state without Christ: “That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:…” This is the condition of the christless man—he’s excluded and disconnected from the covenants of promise; totally alienated from the life of God.

 

 

This description of the christless presented to us in the Word is one that should provoke us to prayer and stir your spirit to preach the Gospel. As I thought about the extent of the darkness, despair and hopelessness of the unregenerate man I made the commitment to tell the whole world about Jesus, and I’ve been at it. Every now and then I’m stirred with deep passion to intercede for the lost souls in the world. Nothing matters more to me than to see those for whom Jesus died brought into their inheritance in Him. And I’m so thankful to the Lord for many around the world who have been touched and saved by the vast opportunities given to us to preach the Gospel, and minister healing to the nations of the world.

 

 

This is all there is to live for; being passionate about the message of the Gospel that has been committed to our trust (1 Timothy1:11). Decide today to be a faithful steward of this glorious Gospel: “Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful” (1 Corinthians 4:1-2). Be faithful to your responsibility as a soul winner. Let your passion for lost souls stir you up to evangelism and intense intercession for the lost. Let their plight touch your heart enough to reach out to them.

 

 

Respond today to the impressions of the Holy Spirit in your heart to cause a change by interceding for the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ to shine in the hearts of the unconverted around you. Remember, the Lord is unwilling that any should perish, but that all men should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9); stir up your passion today.

 

 

Prayer

 

 

Dear Father,

I rejoice in you for the opportunity to intercede for the christless around the world and have them touched by your Spirit and transformed into the image of Christ. I thank you for the light of the glorious Gospel which is shining brightly in the hearts of men, destroying the shackles of darkness. My passion for lost souls is stirred today with renewed commitment, in Jesus’ Name.

Amen.
