Have you ever lost something valuable to you? When I was 16 years old I was raking hay for my grandpa and I lost my billfold. It was on a Friday and I had just gotten paid. I don’t remember exactly now, but I think I had around $120 in the billfold. I was really upset about losing everything including my driver’s license.
Several years later my grandpa found the billfold when he was feeding his cows. I was so excited that I got it back. There is something much more valuable than money and that is your very soul. Have you ever really thought about Jesus coming to earth to seek and to find you? Jesus came to seek and save the lost. The Son of God knows how valuable your soul is. Jesus loved you so much that He was willing to suffer and die on the cross for your sins and mine. That truly is amazing love.
All of us need to realize that our sins have separated us from God. We all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Jesus died on the cross in our place. Jesus lived a sinless, perfect life. Jesus came to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10). We are the ones that have broken God’s Law (the Ten Commandments), but Jesus paid our fine.
The really cool part of this amazing gift Jesus gives us is that it is totally free! There is nothing that you or I can do to earn this free gift (Ephesians 2:8-9). We just need to acknowledge that our sins have separated us from God and that Jesus died on the cross in our place. The really great news is that He rose again on the third day!
If you have never done so yet, please ask God to forgive you for your sins and then ask Jesus to save you. Romans 10:13 states, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Repent from your sins, turn from them and turn toward God. Then, put your faith in Jesus. Surrender your will to Him daily. If you are lost, please do this today. Jesus came to seek and save the lost and He’s still seeking today. Receive the amazing gift of salvation and receive everlasting life.
