Heart Attitudes: The “Lost!”

Have you and I really thought much about those that are “lost?” What does it mean to be “lost?” It’s an unending fate! One is lost to God, to hope, to peace, to joy, to righteousness, to Heaven! One is “lost” in sin, suffering, flames, in the company of evil people and “lost” in despair. When we think about the “lost,” do we think, “What can I do?” If we consider saying something to someone about his or her need of a Savior, do we fear rejection or hostility? Do we figure that they don’t want to hear it? So, what’s the use of offending them?” Isn’t this just the way that the god of this world wants us to think? Do we care about souls enough to risk offending people (which it may not always do)? Because very little is said about Hell these days, do we lose awareness of the horror of this place? “Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41). Have we become neutralized? Can we be stirred? Will H. Houghton’s hymn, “Lead Me to Some Soul Today,” expresses a deeply “felt” burden for the “lost” that should be mirrored in our hearts: “Lead me to some soul today, O teach me, Lord, just what to say; friends of mine are “lost” in sin, and cannot find their way. Few there are who seem to care, and few there are who pray; melt my heart and fill my life, give me one soul today.”  Selah! There are ways to reach some and God can use you and me, if we care enough. Ron
