The Apostle Paul wished he could give up his own eternal life to save his countrymen (Ro. 9:1–4). Charles Finney wept at the thought of people facing a Christless eternity. A. B. Simpson agonized in prayer over the nations where Jesus Christ was not exalted. Hudson Taylor's nightmare featured millions tumbling into the chasm of hell. When we think about these people, we are put to shame. Few of us today come close to having a passion for souls like these men. But can "a heart for the lost" be developed?
