Passion for People
by Ed Elliott
Passion for the lost is understanding the object of God’s love. Paul tells us that God commanded His love towards sinners. Jesus came to seek and save the lost. He gave us a new commandment which is about loving people before He gave us the Great Commission. The new commandment is all about the Great Commission; one empowers the other, and both are a revelation of God’s heart.
“For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19:10
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.” Matthew 28:10–20
