My Hope: The Problem of Sin 

05-02-2017

I want you to imagine you’re sitting down and your “reach one” person comes over.  For those of you who are new or visiting, we want each person here at Priory to have one person in mind, their “reach one” person, whom they are regularly praying for.  This person should be somebody in your circle of acquaintances.  Maybe it’s somebody in your family. Maybe it’s somebody from work. It could be a friend, or a neighbour.  It needs to be somebody you know and see under normal circumstances.  Our role with our one person is to pray for them regularly that the Holy Spirit would bring them to saving faith in Christ.  We will also pray a commitment that we will cooperate with the Holy Spirit to help this person take steps towards faith in Christ.

 Most of us have our one person already picked out.  If you do not, please pray that God would lay somebody on your heart to pray for and to be willing to help take steps towards faith in Christ.  Picture you one now.  Imagine you’re sitting down and this person comes over to talk to you.  As they sit down, they ask you, “What do you think the greatest problem is facing the world?”  Maybe it’s poverty. Or maybe it’s lack of food or water.  Maybe it’s economic disparity.  Maybe it’s dishonesty, or dishonest politicians, or dishonest bankers.  What is the greatest problem the world faces?

 What do you think you would answer?  Is this the kind of discussion you would expect to have with your one?  Do you think you would have a ready answer?
