For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.
Jesus came so that the last could be first, the sick could be healed, the sinners could be saved, and the lost could be found. That was his purpose: to fix that which was broken — not just what is broken in us, but also all that is broken in our world, all humanity that is warped, and all that is lost that goes with this brokenness. So how can we wear the name of Jesus, the Son of Man who is our Savior, and not live with his passion and purpose toward what we see lost in our world?
O loving Father and Almighty God, I yearn for your Spirit to stir a holy passion in your people, especially in me, so that we may more nearly reflect Jesus’ purpose in our lives, families, and churches. I pray in Jesus’ name, the Son of Man who came to save me. Amen.
