Like some of the characters in the hit TV show LOST, I too believe that everything happens for a reason. I believe there is a reason you are reading this. This is not by mistake or chance. It is your destiny.
Why am I staying up till three in the morning to write this? Probably the same reason some Christians followed Ozzy Osbourne for miles through the desert just to tell him that Jesus loved him. He thought they were complete idiots for doing that, Yet he sent his kids to a private Christian School. Maybe He saw something right about Christianity. The victims of the Katrina hurricane have been helped by self sacrificing Christians and Christian organizations. Christians are always looked at as dumb until someone needs some genuine help.
I am not trying to say Christians are superhuman beings - No, they are just humans that have been found. The thing I'm trying to get to is that maybe Christians have something real. Why would they go to all the trouble to tell someone about Jesus. Maybe they've found something- they have found someone- His name is Jesus. They have found the truth and have been found themselves. They are now only trying to help others find the truth. If you were plane wrecked on a strange island and you then found the way to be rescued, wouldn't you want to share that way with the other castaways?
If you are not a Christian and have not been found yet, then you are LOST. You are not knowing the meaning of life. The Christian has found it, but it is not an achievement or a state of being. It is a person - Jesus.
Many miss finding Christ and die every day. You will not find Him if you don't want to. You can give up on life or just continue with the status quo, not knowing the Creator of all. It takes faith, you have to take a step of faith to be saved. Just believe in Him, He won't hurt you. Take a step toward Jesus today and be found. If you find out He's not the truth, then turn and go back, back to being LOST.
I write this to the LOST in hope that someone would turn to Jesus Christ and be found. It is only out of love that you search for the LOST. When someone you love is missing you will spend your life to find them. This is what Christ did on the cross, spent His life for you, And that is what He sent his believers to do- to spend their lives on behalf of the LOST.
This is for you if you are LOST. Instead of sleep tonight, I chose you. I love you and hope you are found. If you need help or prayer please contact us. We're in this together and there's a reason for everything. You don't have to be LOST anymore.
What the Bible says about being LOST...
"I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak" Ezekiel 34:16a
"What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 13And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. 14In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be LOST." Matthew 18:12-14
"Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? 9And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.' 10In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents." Luke 15:8-10
"For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was LOST." Luke 19:10
"For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:8
