Luke 19...Seek the lost

"for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19:10

Who was lost in the garden?  Was it the Lord?  I think not!  Simply, since the time sin entered the world, Christ has been seeking and saving the lost.  As in the manner of walking in the garden searching for His beloved creation, He continues this purpose on earth crying out, “Where are you?” for He longs to make you His child.  His resolve must be our purpose as His ambassadors on earth.  We should not simply wait for those “divine opportunities” to share our faith but to intentionally seek out every opportunity with everyone to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ.  The person making your sandwich to the neighbor across the street is hiding from Jesus because of sin.  He has placed you there to save them!
