The Seeking Saviour :: Warren Wiersbe
Read Luke 19:1-10
The Father is seeking worshipers; the Spirit is seeking His fruit in our lives; and the Son is seeking the lost. This is why He came, and this is why He died.
Someone has to seek after sinners simply because they are lost! Andrew went to find his brother Simon (Jn 1:41); and some concerned soul-winner had to come to find you and me.
The Lord Jesus found lost sinners everywhere He went. He found them by the seashore, at the dinner table, in the synagogue--and even up a tree! Of course, the sinner does not realize he is lost, but that makes his plight even worse. "All we like sheep have gone astray" (Is. 53:6).
Are you walking with the Saviour and seeking the lost? Do you have a sincere burden for souls? Witnessing and soul-winning are not activities that we turn on and off like a radio; they are burdens that control our lives every minute of the day. There are opportunities to witness for Christ presented to us daily. How many lost people we could lead to Christ if only we really cared!
Here is a suggestion: in your daily devotional time, as the Lord to make you a soul-winner and to use you that day to speak to someone about Christ. Then, watch for His leading. It will amaze you as you watch the Lord go before you to prepare the way. And it will bless you as you seek the lost and bring them to Christ.
One of the best ways to "follow His steps" is to go with Him seeking the lost.
