Day 2 of 10 – Turning from Apathy to Passion

1 John 3:17-18 (NLT)

17 If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister[a] in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?

18 Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.


You are Emmanuel, God with Us.

Matthew 1:23 (NLT)

23 “Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
She will give birth to a son,
and they will call him Emmanuel,
which means ‘God is with us.’”

Romans 5:8 (NLT)

8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.


Forgive us for failing to imitate you, Jesus, for we did not remain in your glory, but you took action even while we were your enemies, to save us; Forgive us for our sin, oh God: arrogance, unconcerned, apathetic.

Ezekiel 16:49-50 (NLT)

Do Not Love This World

49 Sodom’s sins were pride, gluttony, and laziness, while the poor and needy suffered outside her door. 50 She was proud and committed detestable sins, so I wiped her out, as you have seen.


A harvest in Northeast Asia.

Matthew 5:14-16 (NLT)

14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

PRAY: for Believers to want the love of God to reach the lost, for the underground church to keep sharing Jesus & for the bible to be accessible & readable in all languages


Turn from Apathy to Passion for the Lost:

Go visit a different cultural restaurant, shop, or neighborhood in your area today. prayer walk the area and speak love and life over those in that culture.

Matthew 28:18-20 (NLT)

18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
