Here’s a question for you…
How do you (the born-again Christian) respond?
There are certain people who show no interest in salvation in the risen Lord Jesus Christ.
Then they’ll experience some sort of crisis and ask for prayers for God to help them in their hardship.
What do you (the born-again Christian) do?
What I do is pray for their salvation, (not for their hardship to cease).
For two reasons:
- God may be using that difficulty in their life for a specific reason.
- I’m not going to petition God’s favor for someone who otherwise want nothing to do with Him.
I can’t think of any scripture where God’s elect saints are taught to pray for God’s earthly blessings toward His rejectors.
I might be missing something though, I welcome your thoughts. 🙂
