Did I get you with the title? Ha! What a sneaky communicator I am. I’m in Lubbock, TX, today with the super-cool folks from Paradigm. I’ll be here the next 2 Thursday nights doing a sermon series from Luke 15 called “Lost.”
Last night I talked about how in the book of Luke one of the ways the good doctor described Jesus was as the seeker. Most notably, that description occurs in Luke 19, when Jesus came into contact with a certain diminutive, tree-climbing tax collector. The summation statement at the end of the story of Zaccheus is striking and simple: The Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.
I don’t often think of Jesus as a seeker, but there He is in Luke. Seeking. Looking for lost coins, lost sheep, lost sons, and even someone like Zaccheus.
It’s humbling to consider that I once was lost but now am found.
