A Verse for Meditation

Torah ScrollFor the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.  Luke 19:10

  • Who are the lost? Can you name someone who is lost?
  • If an atheist accused you of being judgmental by calling someone “lost,” how would you explain what being “lost” means?
  • Most people know that “Son of Man” is another name for Jesus. How would you explain that name for Jesus to a secular thinker?
  • Do you feel defensive about being a Christian? Does it upset you that people go to court to remove crosses from public view? What does this verse say about your attitude toward people who make fun of Christianity? What does this verse say about a Christian attitude toward people who assault Christianity in the courts?
