Spotlighting For Sinners
Luke 15:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
What is it to be lost? Being lost is just the same as being left in a dark room, not knowing where to go and wondering around in complete darkness. The lost do not know how to be found. They can not see their sin and their condition because they are not saved. If you've been saved, you've been given a light in the darkness and a map to live. What are we doing in our own lives to show the lost the way of salvation? The lost should see your life just as a moth sees and is attracted to the light. If you were in a mall and one of your small kids went missing, what would you do? The worry and panic of thinking that someone bad had stolen them away. The lost are just as those children where the devil has stolen them away. We should be just as concerned for the lost as we would be for a missing child. If you knew that you had seen a missing child, would you do something about it? Would you report it? Would you try to help? What are you doing with those that are lost? We should be putting effort into helping to get the lost saved.

The Chapter of Lost Things
Luke 15:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Every single person is a sinful sinner. All they had to do to become a sinners is to be born. Without the shedding of blood there will be no salvation. In order for something to be lost, it has to be owned first. There are four common elements to this passage. Each item that was lost were possessed first. The parables is referring to backslid people. How many times have you found yourself following satan instead of God? The next thing is that each item is lost not to be confused with salvation but with missing. All of us that have been saved have all gone astray at some point. The further the parable goes, the stronger and more serious it gets. Being backslid is simply getting off the path and that have lost their way. The third thing about these parables is that the items lost were searched for. The difference between the items lost is that the sheep doesn't have the sense to go back. The coin can't go back on its own. The human has to make a choice to go back. In all cases, the final point is that the owner found the items. We as humans have no idea if a person is saved or not. They can profess to us that they've been saved but they are not possessed by God. Being baptized will not save you from hell. Another thing that they all have in common is that when the items were found, the owners rejoiced. Being backslid and feeling ashamed doesn't change the value of you and His love towards you.
