Romans 10:1 – Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
What a wonderful verse and what compassion Paul had for his fellow people. Paul had one desire, to see the Israelites get saved! This is the same man who took the gospel to the Gentiles because the Israelites would not accept Jesus as the Messiah. Yet down deep Paul still wanted his nation of people to get saved.
What about us? Do we have this same desire? We might dream of foreign missions and want to give money and support to foreign lands but do we still desire for our fellow American’s to get saved. Let’s switch one word in the verse and make it personal. Romans 10:1 – Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for FORT CALHOUN, BLAIR, NORTH OMAHA is, that they might be saved.
Is that our heart’s desire? Do we really pray to God and ask Him to save those people around us? It’s easy to pray for souls overseas because we don’t know them personally and we see pictures that bring tears to our eyes. Look around there are people who need Jesus right here where we live! Fort Calhoun, Blair, North Omaha, Arlington all need JESUS! Let’s pray for the salvation of people in our area!
Because of the Cross,
