The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost
Instead of judging the lost, talking about the lost, blaming the lost and avoiding or ignoring the lost, God has called each of us to seek and find the lost. That means He has called you to be a "Lostologist"
There are a lot of good examples in the bible on the lost. The prodigal son, leaving the 99 to find the 1. But I like the story of the woman who washed Jesus' feet at the house of a Pharisee. Simon invites Jesus to dinner and the woman gets up and starts washing His feet. It was a sign of kindness and warmth something Simon didn't do.
Then Jesus says to Simon "Do you see this woman" Really? He was sitting right there with them. How could he not? How many times do we go into Walmart, pump gas, or even sit next to someone in church and not see that person who is lost and needs to be seen? To be introduced to Jesus, to understand what humility is. I have good news for you! You have an opportunity to be a Lostologist tomorrow!
Join us at Winter Park apartments for a time to reach out, seek and find the lost tomorrow at 12:30 PM. Let's join together as Lostologists seeking and finding the lost sheep in a warmth, kindness and compassion. Just like the woman who washed the feet of Jesus.
