Day 9 – Seeking!

2020 VISION | Day 9 | Seeking!

“The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost”(Luke 19:10, NKJV).

Humans are wired to share what they like. We tell our friends about the clothing stores, music, funny memes, movies, and even restaurants we enjoy. Sometimes we share way too much on social media. We’re like, “Look at my food, accomplishments, cute family, and the fun I’m having! Look at my outfit from this angle, now this angle, now this one, and now be jealous!”  If we like it, we share it. So, why aren’t we sharing Jesus more often? If we believe that God exists, sent his son to die for our sins, rose from the dead to save us from eternal punishment, has made our lives better, and is seeking to save everyone, then it’s time we start talking about Him. Luke 19:10 follows a story in which Jesus made a bee-line to a notorious sinner in the community and invited him to lunch. Jesus showed us what it looks like to seek and to save the lost. Jesus has now left us with a great commission and equipped us with the Holy Spirit to be his witnesses. Ask, and God will show you who he is seeking to save. You don’t have to prove the entire validity of scripture to them from step one. You can start by gently pointing them to the biblical eye-witnesses who saw Jesus die and rise from the dead like Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and James. Or, you could respectfully tell them your own eyewitness experience with God. Either way, it’s sharing Jesus! 

Prayer: Father, let my judgement of others die and my will to share the message of Your grace and mercy be the cornerstone of all my interactions. Show me who I can reach with the message of the cross. Give me boldness to reach them and the words to tell them about your love and the free pardon of sin. In Christ’s name, Amen!
