As for me, I will certainly not sin against the Lord by ending my prayers for you. And I will continue to teach you what is good and right.1 Samuel 12:23
Never Ending Devotion
Never ending devotion- that is what describes Samuel’s life. He served the Lord and the people of Israel his entire life and when he was ready to step down from leadership, he told the people in his farewell address that he would not sin against the Lord by ending his prayers for them, but would instead continue to teach them what was good and right. Samuel continued caring for the people and praying for them long after his ministry had ended.
As Christians, we should be the same way with the unsaved world around us. We should love and care for them. We should pray for them constantly. Most importantly, we should show them we love them with our words and actions just as Samuel did.
A Prayer to Remember
May the people around me know that I care about them and pray for them with my actions and words. May there be no doubt that I care about their salvation.. Amen.
