Religiously Lost (5 of 5)
Pastor Jeff Schreve
On September 22, 2004, the American Broadcast Company began a new series. It was about a group of travelers who got on an airplane in Sydney, Australia, a, Australia and they were flying to Los Angeles, California. But something happened in the middle of their flight, and the plane went down, and they landed on an island in the middle of the South Pacific. And it didn't take long before these, the survivors from this plane crash, figured out that they were on a really weird and creepy and mysterious island. It was in the pilot episode of the very popular TV series, "Lost," that the passengers look at one another at the end of the pilot and they say this: "Where are we?" They were lost!
How many people in here watch the show, "Lost," can I see your hands? Okay. The only "Lost" show I ever watched was "Lost in Space." I loved "Lost in Space." I haven't gotten into "Lost," but I hear that it's coming to a close very, very soon.
Well, today, I don't want to talk to you about lost on an island somewhere. I want to talk to you, as we finish up our series that's entitled, "Lost," I want to talk to you about being lost in church, lost in religion, separated from God, yet you're in the very house of God.
Luke chapter 15. Jesus spoke about lost things. He told three parables. The first parable was about a shepherd who lost a sheep. And he went out and he searched for that sheep. In the second barrel, parable, He told about a woman who lost a coin, one of ten coins that she had. And she searched diligently throughout the house until she found that coin. And then, He tells about a father who had two sons.
Now we normally look at that story in Luke 15 about the father and two sons, we normally just focus in on the one son. We call that the parable of the Prodigal Son, and about…..we look at the lustiness of that younger son. But he had two sons, and both those sons were lost.
