LOST because we turned away
Sometimes we get lost because we’re not paying attention. Sometimes we’ve been given bad directions. But sometimes we get lost deliberately. We know which way we’re supposed to go and we deliberately choose a different way.
The Bible says that’s what we’ve all done. Instead of following God, we’ve turned away. Romans 3:10-12 says:
There is no one righteous, not even one;
there is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God.
All have turned away.
That’s hard to hear. There’s no way round it, we’re all included.
On our own, we’re not just lost, we’re deliberately turning away from God.
But God doesn’t leave us on our own. He comes to find us and turn us back to him.
Can you think of a time you deliberately chose not to follow God’s way? How did that turn out?
Has God found you and brought you back to him? If not, why not ask him to do that today?
