“For the Son of Man Came to seek and save the lost”
Son of Man – Jesus Christ.
Christ comes to a lost world to bring salvation.
Before Christ, we were like sheep without a shepherd, Lost with no true purpose. The world we live in today pulls us every which way except the way of God. Romans 3:23 states: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. Romans 6:23 declares: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”. Jesus came so that we might have Life in Him and not be dead in sin. As a human Jesus understood our condition better than we ourselves. As God (Jesus our redeemer), He helps each of us, through his divine Word understand our lowly estate and provides for us this gift of God’s redemptive plan.
Gracious God, Righteous Redeemer, thank you for your great desire to bring salvation to all people—including me. Open our hearts and move us to reach out to others who need to know your grace. Even more, dear Father, stir us to seek the lost as passionately as your Son did … and still does. This we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
