The Unlovable

1 Timothy 2:3 “This is good, and pleases God our savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” In the interview I mentioned in yesterday’s post, Will Hart relayed a story about the first time he went to Thailand to do ministry. He found himself in a Tuk-Tuk sitting next to an older Canadian man, who after introducing himself proceeded to express his excitement for that evening’s activities. As the man relayed his plans to buy several children and have forced sex with them, Pastor Will’s heart filled with rage. But as the anger and disgust compounded, he heard God say “if you can’t love this one, then you shouldn’t come back here to do ministry.” Hearing this man talk excitedly about raping children broke Pastor Will’s heart, but he asked himself if he could love the unlovable. He had to ask himself if he could love not just the ones who are hurting, but the ones who are doing the hurting. This might be offensive to some people. It was offensive to me and it was offensive to Pastor Will. But from that moment on, he ministered not just to the prostitutes, but the pimps and perpetrators. Multiple people from all those categories were saved on that trip and subsequent trips because he followed God’s call to love the unlovable, just as Jesus did. If you want to see Pastor Will Hart and Pastor Robby Dawkins in action ministering to the lost in Thailand, check out “Furious Love.” It’ll blow your mind. Lord, you always call us to the impossible. You call us to give the ungivable, to believe the unbelievable and to love the unlovable. You want ALL people to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. Help me to love all your children today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
