God sent His only Son to suffer and die, so mankind could be in right relationship with Him. He is still seeking the lost sheep in the world today. Now that you are saved, Jesus wants to reach the lost through you. Consider God’s heart towards the lost as revealed in these scriptures.
Jesus, share with me Your heart for the lost sheep in this world. I was a lost sheep and I remember how empty I felt and how meaningless everything seemed. Jesus I have known You as Savior and Deliverer but now I want to know You as the Lord of the harvest. I do ask You with all my heart to send out laborers among the lost. I ask that You would fill them with love and power.
Please forgive me for the many opportunities I have missed to speak about You to others. I repent for ignoring the nudge of Your Holy Spirit at times when you wanted me to share. I ask for courage and wisdom. I want to be Your witness in word and deed, seeking wholeheartedly after the lost. Lord bring someone who is seeking across my path today. I want to share with them what You have done for me. According to Your word, “there is salvation in no one else…” Jesus, may Your name be magnified!
