The word "lost" brings up ideas of unloved, unwelcome, or unclaimed. But in the three stories Jesus tells, we learn that God pursues those who are lost an in doing so shows that Lost means Loved.
As those made in the Image of God, we have a unique God given ability to see the Gospel become more and more authentic in our lives. This will take place as we, empowered by the Holy Spirit, know it more with our hearts and in our actions.
This Sunday, we prayed for our city and talked about the miraculous truth that with Jesus, our Nothing becomes Something to Give.
We start our new series looking at what it means to truly know something, both in knowledge and action. Reading the prayers of Paul for the church, we see both knowledge and action present as he encourages them/us to know God more through what Christ has accomplished on their/our behalf.
