Lost and Found: The Series

Series aim:
1) To see that Jesus came to seek and save the lost
2) To see that without Jesus you are lost
3) To see that only through the death of Jesus can you be found

I'm writing a series of talks and studies on Lost and Found. These aren't talks or studies... just some of my thinking in preparation. Stay tuned for the talks on talkcast.ccecyouth.com
In #1 we see that Jesus came to seek and to save the lost. Throughout #2-9 we meet a whole bunch of different people - both real and fictional - who were lost. Some realised it. Others didn't. If you aren't a follower of Jesus and you've stumbled onto my blog (or you're a regular reader) - let me encourage you to see yourself clearly: you are lost... and see Jesus clearly: he died and rose so that you could be forgive and have life eternal.

Shout out to James and the peeps at Central Espresso - the Best Coffee in Gosford - it kept me going with all my early starts (6am in Gosford is very early for a night owl!) over the last couple of weeks.

    I've only really skimmed these, but gotta say it sounds great from what I've seen. What a great theme and what a creative way to look at Luke. I like how you've started with the general mission statement Jesus set for himself, and then given specific examples, all drawn from such different areas of life. And I like the idea that some realised they were lost and others didn't.

    Sometimes (in fact, hopefully usually!) the words of Scripture just ring true don't they, and seem to just so accurately reflect human experience. Which is what you'd expect from words coming from God himself ... top

    What I mean by that (not sure if it was clear) is that each of these individuals that Jesus meets seem so real.
    And of course the Jesus we read of in the gospels seems so real as well ... perhaps it really is all true and not cleverly invented stories. top

    Dave, I love the way you introduce each of these lost and founds with a little insight into your life. Simple. Effective.

    It's good to be found. top
