Journal Entry by Warren Mortomore
S – Ezekiel 18:23 (NLT)
23 – ‘Do you think, asks the Sovereign Lord, that I like to see wicked people die? Of course not! I only want them to turn (to me) from their wicked ways and live.’
O – Observation
God was being accused of being unjust. But his heart is for everyone. For sinners to turn from their sins, and turn to Him and live. No matter the sin, no matter the person.
A – Application
Often times my heart for unbelievers is the opposite of Gods. I write people off, but God doesn’t. His heart is that they would turn to Him and live. Peter in his epistle tells that God – is not willing that ANY should perish but that ALL would come to repentance. So much so that God will hold Jesus back from returning and delay judgement so that ALL would come into His Kingdom.
It’s not just about me going to heaven – but who am I taking with me?
P – Prayer
Lord let me see the lost as you see them, and let my heart beat for the lost as your heart beats. Who today in my world are you wanting me to love, serve and reach with the good news of Jesus Christ?
