03. Short Stories
Lost & Found

 Some Key Thoughts

  • Have you ever lost keys and felt panic in your heart when you couldn’t find them??
  • Losing something important is a timeless illustration picked up by Jesus in Luke 15, to tell us about our relationship with God
  • We are currently being sought by God, just like Phillip was looking for those keys
  • Dig into the following videos to find out about a joyful God who seeks and saves the lost

 Some Key Thoughts

  • Jesus begins telling us about Lost and Found things in a certain setting
  • Social outcasts and self-righteous people were listening to Jesus
  • The social outcasts and “sinners” were coming to Jesus
  • The self-righteous people were complaining about Jesus

 Some Key Thoughts

  • The first of a set of three stories Jesus told was about a lost sheep
  • God looks for us like a shepherd looks for 1 lost sheep, even if it is 1 of a 100 sheep
  • There is great joy when someone returns to God and is restored in a relationship with Him

 Some Key Thoughts

  • The second in the set of three stories Jesus tells us is about a lost coin
  • These are not just about coins and sheep: they are about people, people who are away from God
  • If you are living however you want….
  • If you are a deeply religious person….
  • Don’t let self-reliance keep you from Jesus Christ

 Some Key Thoughts

  • This final story is about 2 sons
  • These 2 sons are both estranged from their father, but in different ways
  • But this isn’t just about 2 sons from long ago; no, these sons represent different kinds of people today as well

 Some Key Thoughts

 Some Key Thoughts

  • The younger son does some pretty wicked things including disrespecting his father and family, wasting his inheritance and working with pigs (considered unclean in that day)
  • He does something good though! He returns to the father and asks for forgiveness
  • He ends up restored in his relationship with his dad
  • The older son essentially works only for reward and not out of love for his father
  • He is angry and bitter, and ultimately ends up outside the house and in a broken relationship with his dad

 Some Key Thoughts

  • The story isn’t just about 2 sons though!
  • The father represents God
  • This father is the greatest father ever; he runs to those who are returning to him
  • God is waiting with open arms and joy for you to return; he won’t give up on you and he never stops loving you
  • Don’t wait! He wants you to return now!
