#5283 – For the Lost

Good morning people who have the heart of God for those who are far off.

We are only a couple of days out from Christmas.

Different to popular belief, Christmas is not primarily about family and presents and eating lots of nice food (as good as all of this is).

Christmas is about the birth of the Saviour of the world!

Let’s not overlook the word Saviour this Christmas.

Jesus came to deliver people from the power of the devil.

Jesus came to save people from their sins and to bring them into eternal life.

Jesus came to restore people to right relationship with our Father in heaven.

Jesus was more than a good man. Jesus was and is the eternal Word and the Son of the most high God. Jesus is God the Son!

The lost are on the heart of God today as much as they were when Jesus was sent from the eternal into the temporal. The following scriptures are still absolute truth today:

John 3:16-17 NIV For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Luke 19:10 NIV For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.

I pray that we are all aware of the lost this Christmas. May we all be a light that shines in the darkness and that points people to the God of love.
