Luke 19:10. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.
Ask any follower of Christ who was lost in this passage, and they shout, “Humanity”. They would be correct. Jesus came to save humanity from death. The problem is that we have this idea that Jesus only hung out with fishermen, prostitutes and tax collectors. While he did hang out with them, he also hung out with church folk.
Only wait a minute! He came to seek and save what was lost so what was he doing in the church? Sometimes, the person you sit next to in church is so lost. Sometimes we convince ourselves that we are saved.
One thought on “Seek and Save”
That’s as accurate an assessment as I’ve ever heard about Jesus’ mission, and, thus ours.
