Remember the recent heart-touching story of Gobi? The stray dog had run alongside an extreme marathon runner in a one hundred and fifty-five-mile China race. Dion Leonard, the runner, fell in love with his little furry friend and wanted to take her to the U.K. But then Gobi went missing from her temporary home. Her story made headlines around the world, and after a week, she was found and reunited with the runner. It is a beautiful picture of a much greater story of searching for the lost. You and I are the “lost.” Isaiah the Prophet describes the fallen human race, writing, “All we like sheep have gone astray.” Dr. Luke, in his gospel tells us how we can be found, forgiven and redeemed. He does so in fifteen words, “The Son of Man has come to seek and to find that which was lost.” What love. What a story. What a Saviour! .
