Luke recorded many things that Jesus spoke to his followers.

Luke captured Christ’s true heart for people when he recorded what Jesus said to, of all people, a tax collecctor.  (You know him as Zacchaeus.)

“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”

Luke 19:10

Pure and Simple Isn’t It

Most profound truths in life are actually fairly simple to state.

Honestly, it doesn’t get much simpler than:   Jesus “came to seek and to save those who are lost.”

But how can we get this truth off the page, through our mind and into our hearts!?!

We need a story!

So Jesus told them this story:

“If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do?

Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one
that is lost until he finds it?

And when he has found it, he will joyfully carry it home on his shoulders.

When he arrives, he will call together his friends and neighbors, saying,
‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’

In the same way,

there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than
over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!”

Luke 15:3-7

Hint:  If you memorize these Bible verses, you’ll always know where to find the best examples of how important finding and restoring lost people is to Jesus.

It’s in Luke 15 that we find:

  • A lost sheep that was searched for and found – and there was great joy.
  • A lost coin that was searched for and found – and there was great joy.
  • A lost son that had to come to his senses, and when he did he came home – and there was great joy.

Are you lost? 

Let Jesus find you – he’s seeking you out.

Are you found?

Then, follow Christ in this regard – never stop searching for wandering people!  Tell them this story.
