Define Lost: Have you ever been lost? What was it like? Maybe it was as simple as you couldn’t find someone’s home or maybe more complicated like getting out of the woods. Nevertheless “Lost” is a frustrating word. It is an adjective (OK actually, a past participle) that we have turned into a noun.
From the scriptures – Luke 15 -… imagine a woman who has ten coins and loses one. Won’t she light a lamp and scour the house, looking in every nook and cranny until she finds it? And when she finds it you can be sure she’ll call her friends and neighbors: ‘Celebrate with me! I found my lost coin!’ Count on it – that’s the kind of party God’s angels throw every time one lost soul turns to God.”
There are many ways to be lost – Some are lost as the prodigal son was lost. He was a rebel. He wanted to have his fling.
Some are lost as the elder son was lost. Most people don’t think of him as lost. He is completely out of sympathy with both his father and his brother. These people are the most difficult to restore.
You can be out of relationship with God in many ways. But, God loves lost people and searches for them. He wants them in relationship with Himself. Michelle says this often, “You can’t change yesterday, but you can start today and have a brand new tomorrow.”
