The current state of affairs of both our country and world sharply illustrate the lost condition of people. The single statement Jesus used to sum up His mission is the He came to “seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10)
Someone who is lost is not where they should be. All of us have been lost in a strange place for a short period of time. You knew exactly where you were but your location in relation to where you wanted or needed to be was a mystery.
Like one lost in a wilderness setting for a brief period of time you may be enamored by the new and strange sights and sounds. The sense of being lost may be set aside by the thrill of exploring the unknown. However, soon the reality of the lack of the necessities of life punctuate the stark realities of the consequences of your lost condition.
