"Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved."
- ROMANS 10:1
We are fascinated by rescue operations. Whether it’s people trapped in flooding vehicles or animals who have fallen through ice into freezing waters, we stay fixed to our screens to see if they will be saved. But there can be no greater desire than to rescue people from the horror of eternal separation from God. The Bible clearly teaches that after death, a person either lives forever in the presence of God in Heaven, or goes to Hell, forever separated from God. With that in mind, we should have a passionate desire for rescuing those who are lost.
So let me encourage you to make a list and pray daily for your friends and family members who are lost. Considering their value, why not organize a search-and-rescue operation? When they are found and saved, I can guarantee they will be eternally grateful to you!
