What It Really Means to Love the Lost
July 10, 2013
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
You’ve probably heard of a little animal called a lemming. Lemmings are very peculiar creatures with a very interesting behavior. When their population density becomes too high, lemmings will group together and march off a cliff and into the ocean in search of a new place to live. That’s the end!
Now for most people, that behavior seems strange. But is it any stranger than the behavior of those people who pursue life in something other than Christ only to fall off the spiritual cliff and into a Christless existence?
So what should we do? We see people who die without Christ and the thousands and thousands of others who follow. Do we sit and watch them go? Or do we dedicate our lives to showing others the way to turn from their destruction and find salvation in Jesus Christ?
To me, the choice is easy: We urgently point the lost to Christ. We warn them about the result of their current path. We show them the way to Jesus. And we pray that God would transform their hearts so that they may come to know Him and have eternal life!
LOVE THE LOST BY URGENTLY POINTING THEM TOWARD A SAVING RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
