Brokenhearted for the Lost

March 1, 2020 – Dr. Phil Griffin

The final words that Jesus spoke while on this earth were what we commonly refer to as The Great Commission. Truly it might be better said that it was The Great Commandment. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit….” (Matthew 28:19) In other words, the Lord commanded us to go not just make converts to Christianity, He wants us to make disciples. By definition, a disciple is a fully devoted follower of Christ. If we desire to be serious about being obedient to this command of the Lord the first step is to see the lost as our Lord sees them. In Matthew 9:36 we read “Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.” Without question Jesus had a broken heart for the lost. If we are to carry out the command of Jesus we must also be motivated by a broken heart for those who do not yet have a relationship with HIm. The question we will ask and attempt to answer this morning is this: “How can I know that I have a broken heart for the lost?”
