For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God’s number one passion is soul winning. This is the reason He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world, not to reach out to the plants, mountains and animals, which are important, but to the world of humans. His great concern for humans is understandable; He made man in His own image and likeness which accounts for His burning desire to have men receive eternal life.
His overwhelming passion to reconcile men to Himself is highlighted in the assignment He gave to Jesus. He gave Jesus the most important job in the world—preaching the Gospel and bringing eternal life to men. Jesus buttressed this when He declared in John 10:10, “…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
The Lord Jesus Christ has in turn passed-on the Father’s passion unto the Church. He said in Mark 16:15, “…Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” As a Christian, above everything else, you must take the responsibility of taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth seriously. Always remember this and do your utmost to fulfill the Father’s passion.
Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank you for entrusting me with the divine responsibility of reaching my world with the message of eternal life. Thank you for the great privilege and honour to be able to share this divine truth of the Gospel. As I do this today, men and women are delivered from the bondage of darkness into the glorious liberty of the sons of God,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
