Matthew 18:11–For the Son of man came to save [from the penalty of eternal death] that which was lost. (AMP)
We were calmly waiting for our appointment when the lights flickered. One of the secretaries gasped out, “Oh no, I was working on an article!” The other laughed and replied, “You didn’t save it, did you?”
I so understood her horrified look! Please don’t misunderstand me. I like my computer and for the most part it does what I tell it to do. That’s because my family has taught me how to negotiate on the computer’s terms! Still, I have lost many an article in its depths! Why is it that we worry so much about a lost computer article but a lost soul hardly ever crosses our mind?
For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God) and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation (Romans 10:10, AMP).
Let’s ask God for the opportunity to share this with someone today.
Prayer: Oh Lord God, I want to know you personally. I believe that you are the Son of God and that you died on the cross for my sins. I believe that you rose from the dead. I confess my sins. Please forgive me and come into my life right now, as my Lord and Savior. Amen.
