16 As He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” 18 Immediately they left their nets and followed Him. 19 Going on a little farther, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were also in the boat mending the nets. 20 Immediately He called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went away to follow Him. – Mk. 1:16-20
Where do you meet the Lost? Jesus found them by the sea, when he was passing through towns, and when speaking in the cities. Leave a comment and tell where you seek for the Lost. Do you go down to the lake to reach the Lost? Do you seek the Lost in a favorite civic organization? Do you search for the Lost at religious gatherings? Do you go to the town square? At the coffee shop? At the bus station or under a bridge? Ezekiel wrote,
“I will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthen the sick; but the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them with judgment.” – Ezekiel 34:16
God has commissioned Jesus’ followers to seek and to save the Lost. The world cares about many things such as if Blink 182 is back together or if a favorite TV show will be on for another season. But Christians are most interested in proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ. Where do you find the people that you teach or that you invite to worship? The world seeks many things, but the church seeks for the Lost. Where do you seek for them? Ask the most evangelistic person you know. Give me your answer.
