Topic: Pray For Unsaved [25/5/2016]
Text: 2 Corinthians 4:3-4
Sometimes, we wonder why people are not responding to the gospel of Jesus. Despite the Word of God being preached with power and signs following, more than half of the world's population have still not responded to the call of salvation. It is baffling, given the widespread of the gospel through all the media available.
The reason is not lost on us. Scriptures says in 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 "but if our gospely be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." Satan has taken hold of the hearts of so many in the world and that is why we need to accompany the preaching of the Word with prayers.
Jesus prayed for the unsaved as He prepared to go to the cross. As He prayed in John 17:20, He said "neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word." We should, like Jesus, pray for the unsaved all around the world, that the veil of unbelief be taken away from their hearts, that the light of the glorious gospel of Christ shines on them.
Keep winning daily.
Dear loving Father, I thank You for salvation which You have made available to the world through Jesus Christ. I pray that all who have not put their faith in Your Son, receive into their hearts the glorious light of Your salvation now, in Jesus name. Amen.
