Lost

For sure, you have to be lost to find a place that can’t be found. Elseways everyone would know where it was.

The first step in understanding how the gospel affects your life is understanding sin. We all sin. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:23. With the creation of man with Adam and Eve, we were intended to have a life fully with God, but sin has soiled that chance. We are all sinners. Because we sin, we have lost our way many a time. We are all lost souls. Jesus died so that we could find our way back and live a life in a relationship with God. That’s where “I once was lost, but now am found,” from Amazing Grace comes from. But here’s the thing, believing that you are not a sinner prevents you from having a true relationship with your Creator. You have given yourself directions and believe to be on the right path. But you can’t find Jesus – a place that can’t be found – that way. “For if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose,” Galatians 2:21. Only by owning up to being lost can you truly find what you’re looking for. Only by being lost can you find the place that can’t be found. God’s family.
