When you know that being in God’s kingdom is, by far, the most amazing gift that anyone could ask for, you also know, undoubtedly, that you want every member of your family to be in the kingdom. You are not willing to have any brother, any sister, any cousin, or any aunt step out of the kingdom for even a brief moment.
So what does one do when the unthinkable happens? Do you step out with them? Do you command them to get back into the kingdom, or else face dire consequences? Do you pray as if there were no tomorrow? I prayed as if there were no tomorrow, and no tomorrow, and no tomorrow. Day after day, I prayed. Night after night, I prayed.
I cannot imagine how one could possibly enjoy being in the kingdom, knowing that family members are outside of the kingdom. Nor can I imagine ever looking forward to tomorrow, knowing that for them, there is no tomorrow. If you have family members who are yet outside of the kingdom of God, join me in praying that God will spare the lives of those whom love would never leave behind.
