Read Luke 15:1-10. Without God, you are lost. You are disconnected from God, separated from him, and out of step with him.
In the story of the Lost Sheep, Jesus explains that when we are without God we are not under his protection. We’re on our own. We must care for ourselves and supply our own security. That’s not how it should be. So, we end up stressed out, burned up, lost and insecure.
The good news is that God senses the danger. Because we are of such high value to God, he knows it is worthwhile to diligently search for us and to return us to his protection. God loves you so much that he seeks you out and rejoices when you are found.
You are not beyond hope. You are not on your own. God is searching for you. He is still seeking you. He wants to return you to his protection.
Will you stop wandering away and return to the safety of God?
