Luke 19:9 – The Lost

Today’s Readings: Josh 16:1‐18:28, Luke 19:1‐27, Ps 87:1‐7, Prov 13:11

Luke 19: 7-9 And when they saw it, they all grumbled, “He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” … And Jesus said “…the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

Observations:

  • Context: story of Zacchaeus
  • Those watching didn’t like that he was going to be a guest of a “sinner.”
  • Jesus responded by explaining that these are the people he came to save.
  • Those who grumbled were the ones that ended the story lost.

Apply: We need to be a light to a lost world.  Look for opportunities to get real time with lost people, love them, and show them Jesus.

When do you connect with people who are lost?
