DAILY DEVO...the Lost and the Found


There are two kinds of people in the world; the lost and the found. 

Those that are found are sometimes called something else; saved, born again, believers, redeemed, saved. The Bible says that those who are Believers were once lost but now are found. 

It's easy to forget about the lost once we are found. But God never forgets about either ...He is concerned for both the Lost and Found. 

Paul addresses the Lost and Found in today's scripture reading (1 Corinthians 5:9,10) when he explains that it was never meant for the Saved (the Found) to not associate with the Sinner (the Lost).  

After all, even Jesus spent time with the Lost...

(Luke 15:1,2) "Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear Him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This Man receives sinners and eats with them."

Christian's are to be in the world but not of the world. Meaning that we are to bring God's light to the darkness without contributing to the darkness. 

To not associate with the Lost would be to completely miss the point of the mission of those who have been found. 

May we have a compassion and love for those Lost souls to become found. After all, isn't that what God did for your Lost soul? 

Thanking God that when we seek Him, He is always found! 

Have a blessed day today. LAURIE
