We all have friends or loved ones who have no relationship with the Lord. While our prayer is for their salvation, we often ask the Lord to send someone into their life who can influence their spiritual thinking. I’m reminded of the “Rich Man and Lazarus.” Both men died and the rich man went to hell, while Lazarus went to the side of Father Abraham. A great chasm separated them and the rich man was in agony and fire with no one to comfort him. The rich man said to Abraham, “Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father’s house, for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment” (Luke 16:27-28 NIV). I have to admit that I too fall back on asking God to send someone…when what I really should be asking is for God to send His Spirit.
