Ask of Me

Wednesday February 22, 2012

In Gen. 18:1-8 we see that Abraham was hospitable and giving to strangers. Do we make the gospel attractive? Giving is a test of love. In Gen. 8:9-15 those same “strangers” (angels) told Abraham and Sarah about the son that they would have, and in 16-33 Abraham boldly intercedes with the Lord for his nephew, Lot and the righteous people in Sodom and Gomorrah. We need to ask for boldness and urgency for the lost, whether one person or many. Ps. 2:8 says to ask God for the nations. #1 Ask for boldness (Eph. 6:19-20), #2 for a door to be opened into their lives (Col. 4:2-6), and #3 ask for good ground (hearts) to sow the Word into (1 Thess. 3:1; Is. 55:10-11). Seek the lost. Isaiah 60:21-22 tells us that it’s God’s will that the kingdom of God would grow. Sow the Word into people’s lives.
