Are You Burdened for the Lost?
Are you burdened for the lost? I chose the word "burdened" because I think there's a difference between a concern and a burden. I would venture to say that if you're a believer in this house you're concerned about the lost. If you're not concerned about those who are on their way to Hell, you really need to question whether you know the Lord. But a burden is different; it's an all-consuming passion, something you can't escape; it's with you all the time, and this is what the apostle Paul experienced. So, this morning, we are looking at the burden that Paul had for lost people.
