In Psalm 39, David asks of the Lord, "Lord, make me to know my end and what is the measure of my days."
At times I consider my fraility. I consider that I will live on this earth for just a short time. Then, I will spend eternity in heaven. It is difficult to grasp eternity. It is difficult to grasp living where there is no time. For those of us who have been born again, eternity will be a time of rejoicing and bliss.
However, I can not think about eternity without thinking of those whose eternity will be different than mine. Often I think about those who have not been born again. Those who have rejected Jesus. They will spend eternity in torment. My heart breaks when I think about them. This morning about 2 am I woke up pondering this thought. I began thinking of many who I know have not received Jesus. I thought of a list of names of those who are not saved. My heart breaks as I think of them.
What do they need? What does anyone need who has not been born again? They need Jesus. They need to know they are sinners before God. They need to know the only way to eternal life is through faith in Jesus.
Today, I ask you to pray for the lost. I ask you not only to pray, but take action. Share with them the change Jesus has made in your life. Tell them how faith sustains you. Tell them what Jesus means to you.
