#5 of 7 Burden for Souls Scripture Notes – How to get a heart for the Lost?
Burden for the Lost Scripture ~ Paul’s great burden for the lost
Romans 9:2-3, NRSV I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my own people, my kindred according to the flesh.
Romans 13:8, ESV Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
As Christians, we cannot impact others if we are not passionate about loving others and showing them God’s love! The two greatest commandments are loving God, and loving one another. How can we impact people we do not love? How can we have a passion for people we do not even think about? Let us pray that God will stir up in us a deep love for him and for others he has placed around us. Let us pray that God will show us how to “live a life of love” in every little thing we do. Let us pray that God will help us to give each one what we owe them: LOVE!
#6 of 7 Showing Passion & Compassion for the Lost – Reaching Out
We must be available for others to reach out to us – Just like Jesus! He made himself reachable, available, and approachable. He continues to be the same today. Reach out – with no strings attached, and with no condemnation, like Jesus. See an example of how Jesus showed passion and compassion to an adulterous woman in John 8:1-11. Let us continually practice loving others as Jesus has loved us. Let us continually sow seeds of love, not those of hate and condemnation. Share with others what God has done for you, and what a difference Christ has made in your life. Let your life, words and actions be a witness to others. Reach out with words and acts of kindness as God grants you the opportunity. Love, Share & Pray. Rinse and Repeat. 😀 As we by God’s grace draw others into the kingdom of God, we allow God to work on each person, just as He continues to work on us.

Philippians 2:4, ESV Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
