A Heart for the Lost World

Friday was Valentine’s Day. A Hallmark holiday celebrated with heart shaped decorations. Heart shaped goodies, balloons, and cards with hearts on them. This holiday is celebrated every February 14. On February 15 the Valentine’s Day merchandise go on sale. Over the next several days the prices are reduced until everything is sold or disposed of.

In some regards, Hallmark holidays resemble the compartmentalized way modern Christians express their faith. With great preparation we eagerly anticipate certain calendar days of celebration. In the days and weeks following our excitement wanes. The decorations become fleeting memories. The reason for celebration is set aside for another year. We live our lives as if though there never was a reason to celebrate.

A question every sincere believer in Christ asks is “Do I have a heart for the lost?” “Am I burdened for the eternal destiny of all peoples, tribes, languages and nations?” Or do I only display a heart for the lost at certain times or events or when it is convenient?
