Paul’s great concern and desire

We are currently in North Carolina at Calvary Baptist Church and Pastor Chris Haislip.  Pastor Scott Caudill is preaching this week.  What a service we had tonight.  I just wanted to share with you a few things that I got from the message.  It was powerful.

Romains 9:1-3

“I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:”

  • If possible, Paul was willing to go to hell so that his brethern could be saved
  • Paul’s desire wasn’t in money, politics or other earthly things.  He simply didn’t want the world to die and go to hell.
  • Paul’s ministry was about others.
  • The world will never be evangelized until we are willing to give it all.
  • The key to Paul’s ministry wasn’t his head knowledge but was his heart.

I was touched tonight.

I wonder where my tears have gone.

I am afraid that too many times I am going through the motions.

I want to be used.  I want to see other come to Christ.  Pray for me.  I want my life to make a difference.

    thank you for the update. I pray God will use all of us in these last days to win more to Him. One day the last one will come into the fold.
