July 16 – Don’t Follow Me – I’m Lost

tfh sunrise“Don’t follow me, I’m lost.” said the sign on the back of a car. The word “lost” is often used to describe a situation where folks don’t know where they are. Or it can refer to being lost at sea. But the most important and most serious use of the word “lost” was used by Jesus Himself in Luke’s gospel when He said, “The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” He was not referring to something lost physically, but of the spiritual condition of every human being. While the intellectually challenged and infants are not accountable for a sinful nature, the rest of us must stand before our maker one day to give account for how we have lived. The only way to prepare for that all-important inevitable meeting is to come into a proper relationship with God through faith in the Lord Jesus. Or as Paul put it, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.”
