Paul said that he could wish himself accursed from Christ for the sake of his countrymen, whom Paul described as,
“Israelites, to whom pertain the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises; of whom are the fathers and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, the eternally blessed God. Amen” (Rom 9:4-5).
How sad that many people who fit that description, shall be lost.
Your countrymen may not be Israelites, but your countrymen are special to you for other reasons. Do you wish for them to be saved? Do you have the fire of evangelism burning in your heart for your countrymen?
