How many of us can honestly say we’re willing to give up our eternal salvation for the sake of our kinsmen? Willing to go to the eternal Hell in their place? The Apostle Paul wrote —
For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh. (Romans 9:3)
Although I felt the Lord wanted me to make a commitment on this verse, I just couldn’t do it. Just the thought of even speaking the words as a prayer to the Lord was too frightening for me. I battled over this verse for months.
Then, one day, the Lord revealed that He loved me so much that He did this for me at the cross. Thus, I knew how Paul could make such a statement. The apostle achieved that same level of love in His walk with the Lord.
My prayer today:
Lord, give us American believers the same love for the Jews You gave Paul when he wished that he could be accursed and cut off from You for the sake of his kinsmen. (Based on Romans 9:3)
Join with me on Tuesday’s to pray and fast for the one new man to finally come forth in the Body of Christ.
…that he might create in Himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace (Ephesians 2:15)
