Lost and Found (Luke 15)


Big Idea: When you find something that’s lost, it’s time for a party.

Purpose: To thank God for finding us, and to join in the party

If you’re going to follow Jesus:

1. You’re going to have questions

Background: Jesus invites us to follow him. Where? Among the tax collectors and sinners. Tax collectors were seen as spies for Rome, traitors, and extortioners. Sinners: at best, people who didn’t come to the Temple to worship; at worst, pickpockets, prostitutes, pimps.

2. You’ll understand why he loves lost people

If you’ve ever lost anything important, you know what it’s like: when you find it, you rejoice.

3. You’ll understand that it’s not about us; it’s about God (the running Father)

4. You’ll join in with the party
