Key Scriptures: Romans 10:1-4 (ESV)
10 Brothers,[a] my heart's desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. 2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. (ESV)
Summary: Our lives are best lived when our passions line up with the things God is passionate about. God is passionate about people.
Love enough to pray
What we talk to God about in prayer is a reflection of our highest values and priorities. Paul demonstrates what should be among those highest priorities as he prays for those who do not yet know the good news about the salvation found in Christ alone.
Love enough to compliment
An often untapped pathway to the gospel is the art of compliment. Do you know people well enough to compliment them on their gifts and abilities?
Love enough to share
Love eventually requires that you share. There are three ways the Bible speaks to the good news.
- Sin / guilt to forgiveness
- Shame to love / honor
- Bondage / oppression to freedom
Call to Action: Love someone today with your prayers, with your compliments and with a pathway to the good news about the power of Christ to transform life!
