    It is to know and understand the state of man who is separated from God. It is to be moved internally with compassion for man who is separated from God. And then it is to move physically to do something about it. And yes I have a heart for the lost.

    What does it mean to have a “heart for the lost”? Do you have such a heart?————– Yes I believe all of us in whom Christ Lives In (and out of) Have a heart for the Lost : Luk 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. And as we often believe in promises made to the apostles (Disciples ) for ourselves. So should we Become “fishers of men”————— How do we be fishers of men. –————–Mark 16 Speaks of thing That are Signs : Mar 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mar 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mar 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; Mar 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. –————–For God’s Love in us LOVES the world and the Lost———The apostle Paul told Timothy—- “2Ti_4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.————————————- I love giving out Tracts And When we lived in New Orleans We gave out a lot of tracts on Bourbon Street and Held poster sign which Had this Word From Peter “ Act_3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;”——There are a Lot of Hurting people among the lost And Christ Jesus our LORD Hurts for these lost. A couple other things——- Should be “when” not “if” we disciple we should do it in a way that we help them to be fishers of men. And if we have faith for it and the unction we should be walking in miracles As these witness best of our love to the Lost. And prepare to be ostracized for the devil hates true evangelists –—-”Make disciples of all men.”

    This is an excellent example of “christianese”. It is a language strictly speaking, used as a qualifier to make clear that we are “us” and they are “them”. It provides for affirmation and identity. Unfortunately, it is a major source of pride which C.S. Lewis called “the complete anti-God state. I weep for the Church, who continues to miss the mandates of an all-loving God and the clear directives of His Spirit. “A heart for the lost” are you kidding me.? One of the first baby steps towards loving our neighbours would be to acknowledge our commonalities…that we all have similar hopes and dreams and ultimately similar brokenness. We should remember that there is a common answer to that brokenness found in Jesus Christ. If we fail to see our humanity in our neighbour and just see them as “the lost” we will never really love them like Jesus would. We need to live free so that our neighbours can see what that looks like. We need to be absolutely transparent with our love and completely intentional with our serving. To “have a heart for the lost” means to be like Jesus as we may be the only Jesus they will ever be exposed to. Nothing less will do. Nothing more is called for.
