Unlimited: You Need Never Be Lost

The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost (Luke 19:11)
I don’t know what I did before GPS navigation systems! I remember constantly being late for meetings, and driving round and round in circles, frustratingly lost. And then my wife gave me a GPS for my birthday and my life has never been the same again.
But there are worse ways of being lost. You can be lost in a relationship, or you can lose your own identity in the midst of the bombardment from society about who others think you should be. And even worse is to lose your soul, to lose eternity.
You will never be lost while trusting in Jesus.
Although we try to live good lives, we always fall far short of living the kind of way God wants us to live. But here’s the good news. Jesus came to seek and save the lost. He came so we need never be lost. He is the ultimate Seeker and the Ultimate Saviour:
And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me, but that I should raise them up at the last day (John 6:39, NLT).
Because of Jesus, you need never be lost. When you trust in Jesus, no matter how messed up your life may be, you are, although never a perfect child, always perfectly his child. No one has ever been lost while trusting in Jesus, and that’s a promise! – Eliezer Gonzalez
Reflection: Do you trust in Jesus? Then you cannot be lost! How do you think this truth could change the way you pray and approach God?
