Anyone who lives in the real world knows, life can be very painful. Almost daily when I speak to people, I'm listening to another story of disappointment and hurt. Its usually when people get in trouble, or see themselves becoming something God never intended, that they seek Gods help. I'm very thankful to God, that He never gives up on people, or turns His ear away from their cries. LOST is the word used in the bible to describe someone, who gets to the place in their life where they're without God & don't know what to do. I saw one writer describe L.O.S.T. as Living Outside Salvation Truth. Lost souls are normally depressed & confused, trying to find answers to the questions Why and How? Lost can apply to anyone, christian or not. I often hear these desperate souls referred to as those seeking to "find themself". Its a fancy popular term, with no real meaning. How can someone lost find themself, when they don't know what they are looking for?
As with everything else in life, God stands faithful to help our hurting world. God has made it a part of life, that He can always be found. He said "seek me, and you will find me". God can be found in the gospel through Jesus. Christ in you becomes the "light of the world", He exposes sins deception, heals life's wounds, and reveals who God made us to be. Because Jesus is the answer, the answer now lives in you through His Spirit, wow, real hope down on the inside. One of Christianity's most beloved songs, has a line that declares the true anthem of the faith. Amazing Grace how sweet the sound. But the line that shouts universal hope in Jesus says, "I once was lost, but now I'm found, was blind but now I see". Thats the testimony of a relationship with God. For the sinner and the saint. He comes to live in us, to transform us into His desired image. You can know who you are, where you are, and where you are going. Whatever is hurting you, bring it to Jesus.
