For to this you were called, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving an example for you to follow in his steps.
[1 Pet 2:21 NET]
I have long since ceased to pray, “Lord Jesus, have compassion on a lost world!” I remember the day and the hour when I seemed to hear the Lord rebuking me for making such a prayer. He seemed to say to me, “I have had compassion upon a lost world, and now it is for you to have compassion.”
