Having a Heart for the Lost

“Have you no wish for others to be saved? Then you are not saved yourself, be sure of that.” Charles Spurgeon

This quote strikes a nerve doesn't it?  But isn't evangelism the most loving thing we can do for someone? We may seek and find excuses and justifications for not witnessing, but I know all true believers inwardly have a desire for the lost to come to salvation.  

When we are called to love God and to love others (the Greatest two commandments, Mark 12:28-34), that means talking about Him to those who do not yet know Him.  God is the definition of love (1 John 4:7-21) and must be heard of, believed in, trusted in, and shared to experience true love.  Love flows into the soul through Jesus, and out of our heart and through our lips in witnessing.


Have you witnessed to someone this year? This past month? This week? Will you pray for the opportunity to share the Gospel today? 

Evangelism is tough.  It is a spiritual battle.  But it is often more simple than we make it out to be.  Want some help with sharing Jesus with a lost friend, coworker, family member, or neighbor?  Check out livingwaters.com for evangelism encouragement, resources and ideas!
