Gospel Urgency
by Eric Perkins

Know that Yahweh your God is God, the faithful God who keeps His gracious covenant loyalty for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commands. – Deuteronomy 7:9 (HCSB)

I am constantly amazed at the extraordinary measures God will use to bring the lost and broken of this world to Himself. For some, they hear the message at home because godly parents shared with them about our Heavenly Father’s boundless love. Yet, others hear because a faithful saint answered the call of God to go share with their neighbor, co-worker or with villagers on the other side of the globe. Yes, He is faithful! The desire of God is that all would hear the message of the Gospel and receive His salvation. 2 Peter 3:9 states, “The Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” (ESV)

Just as God pursued the hearts of his people in the Old Testament (Deuteronomy 7:9), He is pursuing the hearts of the lost today. A faithful and loving God offers the gracious gift of eternal life. May God’s faithfulness in your life lead you to share your story daily, so the lost of East Texas hear the life-changing message of the gospel.

Prayer: Lord, today I pray for the people of East Texas. Open their eyes to see You. Open their ears to hear Your voice. Give them a desire to find You and believe in who You are. May those who are Christians give testimony of Your faithfulness to those they know need a Savior.

“It’s in prayer that we experience God and are exposed to His greatness. It’s in prayer that we make ourselves available to God.” – Jack Graham
