LOST without God

Have you ever been lost? Properly lost when you didn’t know where you were or how to get back to somewhere safe. Do you remember a moment of panic or a deeper fear? How did you get back to safety – did you find your way or did someone come looking for you?

The Bible tells us that without Christ, we’re LOST.

Ephesians 2:12 says that:

you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.

Although we were MADE by God and LOVED by God, we ended up LOST without God.

Living without God means living without regard to the one who made us. Living without regard to the way he made us, and the purpose he made us for. Living without his guidance and his care, we end up lost, unable to find our way back to him.


The amazing news of Christianity is that when we were lost, God came looking for us. We couldn’t find our way back to him, but he found us.

Take a couple of minutes to imagine what it might be like to live without hope and without God. Then thank him that you don’t have to!
