Read 1 Timothy 2:1-7
Most conservative numbers suggest there is approximately 1.8 billion Christians in the world, that seems like a lot of people, right? Well that leaves around 6 billion people on the planet who are under God’s judgment. It’s been my experience that American Christians have focused on the part of the Gospel that involves spending eternity with God once we leave this world. Being saved from God’s wrath is something we should be joyful and excited about, and we should celebrate whenever somebody accepts Jesus as their Savior. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Romans that he anguished so much for the lost (which in context was the Jewish people) that He would give up his salvation and spot in Heaven that His people would be saved. Now, I do not know where you are in your walk with Jesus, but I can speak for myself that I am not at that maturity in my relationship with Jesus that I would go to Heaven for anybody. (I'm just being honest). We should all take time today to ask God to stir up anguish in our souls that causes us to want to reach the lost at any costs.
