My Son Was Dead

Bible Text: Luke 15:1-32 |

A person either knows where they are or they don’t. Everyone is, in essence, lost or found. That said, not everyone who is lost knows they’re lost. Or they won’t admit it. That is certainly true in the physical world of roads and highways, but it is also true in the spiritual sense of things. There are some who are lost, and others who have been found by God.

In Luke 15, Jesus tells three parables about being lost and found: the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the lost or prodigal son. Through these stories, we will see God’s heart for those who have not yet found their way to him. And as we study this well-known chapter this weekend, each of us will have the opportunity to test our own heart for the lost.

Do you have the same heart that God has for all of his children?
If you do, you’ll…

…Rest secure in what he’s done for you as a believer

…Reach out to the not-yet-saved as he does

…Rejoice! when someone is found by him

…Reject any sense of entitlement you might have as one of his children
