Seeking the Lost

Scripture: Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.

Observation: I was created so that I would become more like Jesus, that is my goal each day. I should imitate his ways, teachings and actions. Jesus came to save the lost which I was one. That is also what I should be doing, seeking the lost and doing what I can through the Holy Spirit to save them.

Application: Seek each day those who need to hear the Word of God and speak it into their lives. Be more like my Lord and savior by showing everyone love and being the best representative I can for God.

Prayer: Dear Lord I thank you for seeking me out, then reaching out and saving me. May you fill me with the Holy Spirit and show me how to reach out to others in your name.

Have Mercy

Scripture: Luke 18:13 But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, “God have mercy on me a sinner.”

Observation: God has had mercy on me, this sinner. I may not have come as humble as I should have and only asked that he would just allow me to go without eternal punishment or reward. He showed me mercy and guided me through the rest of my life, never leaving me or forsaking me.

Application: I need to humble myself each day to my Lord. For I’m not worthy of Him, but he still loves me. I shouldn’t take his mercy lightly, but with gratitude and repentance, living a life worthy of the love he has for me.

Prayer: Dear Lord I thank you for the mercy and grace you show me each day and I ask that you guide me this day, that I will honor and glorify your name.
