The Apostle Paul uttered some words that still shake me to the core when I read them.
If you missed what Paul was really saying in this verse, read it again. You see, Paul was willing to give up his salvation and go to Hell forever if his doing so would result in his fellow Jews being saved.
I don’t know about you, but Paul’s words make me uncomfortable at my low-level of love for my neighbors and other Americans.
My prayer today:
Lord, give the American church a love for our neighbors and other Americans like Paul had for his kinsmen so that we have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in our hearts until we see a great harvest of souls in our nation. (Based on Romans 9:2)
Join me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for the American church.
