Paul and the Lost

To be an obedient Christian is to be someone who wants others to become Christians.  Not out of duty or have to or obligation or the importance  of being right, but rather because you have tasted and seen the goodness of God and you want others to experience that same goodness.  I think many Christians are for the idea of reaching others in principle.  It is just the pesky reality that this means engaging and seeking out other real humans that becomes the challenge.  We love people, but we don’t love loving them.

I had to the privilege to be in Athens, Greece recently.  While my wife were in Athens we were able to visit some really powerful places.  One of those places included a spot where the Apostle Paul visited and engaged lost people for Christ.  As I walked this space, I was convicted and challenged to think about some important realities to pursuing others for Christ.
