Who Are the People You Love Most?

“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.”

Romans 10:1-4

Ponder This

Think of the person you love most. What is your deepest desire for that individual? What do you desire for those you love most? Your greatest desire for them is extremely important because it shows what you value. For example, parents, do you desire an education for your children? Is that your greatest desire? If that’s all you desire, you’re going to raise clever devils. That’s all. Do you desire culture for your children? Now, we’re trying to refine young intellects and add culture. But if that’s your heart’s desire, if culture is your hope, all you’re doing is making the world a better place to go to Hell from. Is that your desire? You may say, “Well, I want them to be materially well off. I want them to have sufficiency.” What difference will that make if they have it all and then die and rise in judgment to face a God they do not know?

You see, Jesus came not as a great philosopher, not as an educator, not as an economist, not as a social worker; Jesus came as a Savior because man’s greatest need is salvation. And the desire you ought to have for all your loved ones is salvation.
