     Children’s Message: I wonder if you had to make a choice this morning. (Yes) I would guess that you even have had to make a choice already today. Did you have to choose what clothes to wear? … Did you choose what you had for breakfast this morning? (Yes, I had cereal) We may even have to choose if we want to pay a certain price for something at the store or wait until we find it on sale or priced lower. Yes, we certainly have a lot of choices in life. Today’s words of Jesus are about choices. Jesus tells us the story of a clever manager. This manager asks all who work for him to think about the choices in life. Jesus told one story about a man who was going to lose his job. So, before he did, he changed the amounts of what people owed his boss, and told people to pay less than they were supposed to. This made the people like him, and so they treated better later when he needed help. Jesus told this story because He didn’t want people to become too worried about money. Jesus reminded the people who heard this story that everything we have in life is a gift from God and that nothing should ever come between us and God. Jesus reminds us that in this life, “stuff” can come and go. Jesus wants to make sure that when we have things, we use those things the way God leads us to do. Whether it is money or other things, we should always remember that the things we have are all gifts from God! What do you think is the most important thing? (God) That is right, it’s God who gives us everything. If we think about it, we are just borrowing things, so we want to make sure we take care of those things! And we need to remember that God is always the most important in our lives! Let’s pray… God of love, remind us of the most important thing—you! You have given each of us special abilities. Provide us with the opportunity to show how much we love you by sharing our talents and time with others. Help us to always keep the most important thing as the most important thing; You, Lord. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

          As we come to our time tithes and offerings, we remember that God give us everything we have, and we need to be willing to give whatever amount back for His mission that He leads us to give. Thank you for being faithful in giving to the mission of our church as we give our Lord the glory. Let’s pray, as we dedicate our tithes and offerings that have been given back to the Lord’s this week … Holy Giver of all good blessings, we find ourselves under a debt we can never overcome or repay. Every blessing we have received or hope to receive comes from Your generosity. The gifts we bring to You this morning pale in comparison to the bottom line of our ledger. Yet You manage Your kingdom on a different economic model – one where the equity is grace, forgiveness, compassion, mercy, and justice. You encourage us to be shrewd in the world’s money, knowing it is not the money that matters in the end. And so, we pray in the name of Jesus, whose life and death paid our debt. Amen. Let’s stand as we’re able as we praise our Lord for His many blessings, singing the Doxology; “Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heav’nly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! Amen”

         Now we come to a time to share our Joys & Concerns: Joys shared -Martha shared that she got to spend the last several evenings with her grandson AJ and his family at the RubberDucks games. -Josie Denham shared that it was good to be back in church.

Concerns shared: -Brett asked for prayrs for traveling mercies for much of their family this week as they will be going in several different directions. -Sheila Stoll asked for prayers for a young man associated with the Dalton restaurant where Cindy and Isaiah work, who had a motorcycle accident with a semi and has lost his leg. She also asked for continued prayer for the young woman who has been in a coma from another motorcycle accident. -There were quite a few unspoken requests. -Continued prayers needed for all on our prayers lists. -Traveling mercies for those away, whether going somewhere else or coming come. -Continued Prayers for the preschoolers, families and staff as they continue adjusting. Mrs. Tyler was ill this past week, so there will be more changes this week. -Prayers for those dealing with illness and injuries, and for those grieving lost family and friends. -Prayers for our country and world. -Continued Prayers for Great Britain as they bury the Queen this week. -Prayers for Christ’s Church, all churches, all denominations. We need to be praying for God’s guidance in everything in His Church. Let’s take all of this to the Lord in prayer. Holy God, We thank You for giving us this new day, as You continually reveal your Son as our Savior. Thank You for hearing our requests both spoken and unspoken, and answering them according to Your will. Lord, we pray for the needs of others, as we are intercessors for them along with Christ and Your Holy Spirit. You know the needs of each and every one. We ask that You bring healing to all wounded, make whole all who are broken, speak truth to all who aren’t seeing things clearly as You have meant for us to do. Lord, we ask that You shed light in every darkness, that all will see Your glory and know Your Son, Christ Jesus in order to be saved. We ask for healing of this nation and this world. We ask for peace and comfort for those who are grieving the loss of loved ones. And Lord, we ask for so many for healing of illnesses to have Your healing according to Your will in each situation. We ask for traveling mercies for all traveling in whatever ways and wherever their paths lead them, Lord, asking for Your hedge of protection to around each one of them. Lord, we pray for Your leading and the guidance for us to follow You. We give You the praise and the thanks for all You do for us. Be with each one present, as we prepare for Your message and pray the prayer that Jesus taught us to pray: Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen.

Our Hymn of Preparation is “Living for Jesus.” (By C. Harold Lowden & Thomas Obediah Chisholm) Are these your words today? Verse 1- Living for Jesus a life that is true, striving to please Him in all that I do, yielding allegiance, glad-hearted and free, this is the pathway of blessing for me. Chorus – O Jesus Lord and Savior, I give myself to Thee; for Thou, in Thy atonement, didst give Thyself for me; I own no other master, my heart shall be Thy throne, my life I give henceforth to live, O Christ, for Thee alone. Verse 2 Living for Jesus who died in my place, bearing on Calvary my sin and disgrace, such love constrains me to answer His call, follow His leading and give Him my all. Chorus, Verse 3 – Living for Jesus wherever I am, doing each duty in His holy name, willing to suffer affliction or loss, deeming each trial a part of my cross. Chorus, Verse 4 – Living for Jesus through earth’s little while, my dearest treasure, the light of His smile, seeking the lost ones He died to redeem, bringing the weary to find rest in Him.

Scripture: Our message comes today from Luke 16, reading verses 1-15. Jesus also said to the disciples, “A certain rich man heard that his household manager was wasting his estate. He called the manager in and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give me a report of your administration because you can no longer serve as my manager.’ “The household manager said to himself, What will I do now that my master is firing me as his manager? I’m not strong enough to dig and too proud to beg. I know what I’ll do so that, when I am removed from my management position, people will welcome me into their houses. “One by one, the manager sent for each person who owed his master money. He said to the first, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ He said, ‘Nine hundred gallons of olive oil.’ The manager said to him, ‘Take your contract, sit down quickly, and write four hundred fifty gallons.’ Then the manager said to another, ‘How much do you owe?’ He said, ‘One thousand bushels of wheat.’ He said, ‘Take your contract and write eight hundred.’ “The master commended the dishonest manager because he acted cleverly. People who belong to this world are more clever in dealing with their peers than are people who belong to the light. I tell you, use worldly wealth to make friends for yourselves so that when it’s gone, you will be welcomed into the eternal homes. 10 “Whoever is faithful with little is also faithful with much, and the one who is dishonest with little is also dishonest with much. 11 If you haven’t been faithful with worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? 12 If you haven’t been faithful with someone else’s property, who will give you your own? 13 No household servant can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be loyal to the one and have contempt for the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” 14 The Pharisees, who were money-lovers, heard all this and sneered at Jesus. 15 He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves before other people, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued by people is deeply offensive to God. The Word of God for the people of God. Praise be to God!      

Message: Jesus said that no servant can serve two masters. He went on further with saying that  you either hate one and love the other or else be devoted to one and despise the other. The emphasis here was between God and money, but we can go further than just with money as the other master. So many times our master is not money. First of all, we know from the 10 Commandments tell us that God said that we are to have no other gods before Him! Idols are gods with a little “g.” But many have thought that He only was referring to other religions and gods associated with them. As you know here, Jesus talked about money, but we can also include fame and power, and there are so many more things! D. L. Moody, a well known evangelist from the late 1800’s, is quoted as saying, “Whatever you love more than God is your idol.” That was referring to a lot of things. Back when he was preaching it seemed that many people were focused much more on God and they held God holy. There were many people who held to the Sabbath, they wouldn’t go anywhere other than to church on Sundays, or some who worshiped on Saturdays, would only go to church on Saturdays and nothing else. However that isn’t the case today! When we look at surveys, we see people who claim to belong to churches who might be in that church one day out of the year. We have others who claim to be Christians who may never have been in church there entire lives, but they claim Christ as their Savior. We have others who do attend church on a fairly regular basis, but other times that they have other loves that they spend their time at or doing, forgetting about God during those times. We are going talk a little bit more about those things. What does idolatry look like today? … Many people get caught up in shopping – clothes and shoes, jewelry and make-up; what about cars; what about entertainment – books, electronic games, technology; what about sports – (all levels – professional, college, public & private school, children’s sports). Many times we become fascinated, fascinated with these things. Other things people become fascinated with are becoming high in social status, which can includes money usually as well. So what are your idols?… We look at the golden calf, which was an idol in Old Testament times, but what about your idols?… They may include careers, family, money, pleasure, fame, success, culture, power, approval, comfort, possessions, friendship, entertainment, or other religions. And you may be wondering, what other religions? We know that there are some who dabble in Buddhism, some look into Hinduism, some are into Islam or the Muslim religion. But what about witchcraft, what about horoscopes, what about listening to fortune-tellers? There are so many things that people get caught up in, not realizing how dangerous they can truly be, and how quickly they can take them away from God! Isaiah 2:8 spoke of idols being from our own making, things that we form with our own hands or by ourselves. Things that we do with work, building positions and status, getting titles, having more money; having big houses or fancy cars; having special friends who are thought of highly in society; our family, ourselves, our spouses or boyfriend or girlfriends, our children; social media, like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and other kinds that I don’t even know about; games, both table games and electronic games, and that includes the lottery; sex, and the pleasure there; food, and sometimes becoming gluttonous in that; ad once again shopping. You can probably even name more that have controlled your lives, and other that will still be coming to mind. We also look at alcohol, drugs, and others that become addictions; gambling, and sex which can be an addiction, shopping and food which can become addictions. There are so many things that our lives can get tied up in that it pulls us completely away from God. Sometimes we even forget that God is there! All of these things have the potential to take over our lives, and take us away from our God: the Triune God; God the Father, Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer, and God the Holy Spirit!  When that happens our lives are not connected with the Lord anymore, possibly a little, just a slight bit; but not enough to make it matter! You may wonder, “Well what about God?” God is not an idol! We worship Him! We honor Him, like we do idols, but God is our Lord! He deserves our whole selves. He is the One who created heaven and earth! He is the One who created hell! He is all powerful, all knowing, and all present, always present from here through eternity! No idol that you could ever name has these qualities! God offers us an eternal relationship with Him; giving grace, and love, and salvation through Christ; and guidance, and strength, and power from the Holy Spirit. God deserves our everything! We need to pull away from our idols! In verses 15 & 16 Jesus said to the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, that they like to appear righteous in public, but God knows their hearts, and when He does He detests what He sees. What the world honors is detestable in the sight of God! We need to remember that the message from this is that God does see everything in our hearts!  He sees the good, and He sees the bad. We can try and justify ourselves, but we can’t do that with God! God knows what we truly feel! And we need to remember that! There is no need to chase the pot of gold somewhere. God is more than a mountain of gold. He is all we need! All we need! He is not a physical need, but He provides our physical needs that we have. When we focus our lives on the Triune God: God, the Father; Jesus, the Son; and the Holy Spirit: we have everything we need; both physically and emotionally, and also, mentally and spiritually. If we focus on any or all of those other things, those idols available in this world, our lives will never be complete or fulfilled. Only God completes us! Once we have Him fully, everything else falls into place. And it falls into place according to His will not ours! It’s, also, according to His timing, not ours! Stop worshiping idols, and stop striving for things that will never satisfy you, because all of those things will cease to exist when Christ returns! When you find yourself thinking about doing anything that takes you away from God and it takes you away from serving Him, it’s time to reevaluate and see if you are letting idols control your life. One of the things that I thought about as I was preparing and letting God give me this, and I really think God wants me to remind you is this; yes, there are other things that God gives you in this life to fulfill your life, to satisfy who you are, and these things at times pulls you away from this place on Sunday, because of being with family or doing other things, but doing these times, you need to make sure that you still concentrate on God! Focus on Him, and be where you need to be spiritually with God! Just make sure those things are top priority in your lives! It’s time to reevaluate and see if you are letting those idols control you. All we need to do is serve Him, loving Him and others as we are taught to do, helping others to learn about God’s love and salvation through Christ. Let’s Pray… O God, we want to have our cake and eat it, too: we want to be a friend of the world and have those people accept us and make us part of their lives, but still be able to be Your friend, also. Yet, Jesus taught us: “No one can serve two masters.” We at times have too many masters that we try to serve, who are competing for our money, clamoring for our time, and creating chaos in our lives. Master, who is one God, help us to quiet and draw us near to You. Give us strength and courage to get our priorities back to You. Help us to get our priorities straightened out. Help us to seek Your kingdom first! Help us to live faithfully and joyfully in the world, and to be friends with the people You call us to serve. Help us also to not let their idols become our idols. Help us also to remember that our best relationship is the one we have with You. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen. Personal Reflection: Take each day to reflect on what you are allowing to lead your life, whether it’s God or whether it’s something else that you need to deal with. Think about what is taking control over you, away from God, so that you can give the control back to God, so that you can serve Him the way you should be.

Our closing song is UMH #399 – “Take My Life, and Let It Be” It brings us back to some of the wording in our first song. This gives an opportunity in song to commit or recommit your lives to God and to let go of your idols. (By Frances Ridley Havergal & Henri Abraham Cesar Malan ) Verse 1 – Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee. Take my moments and my days, let them flow in ceaseless praise. Take my hands and let them move at the impulse of Thy love. Take my feet, and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee. Verse 2 – Take my , and let me sing always, only, for my King. Take my lips, and let them be filled with messages from Thee. Take my silver and my gold; not a mite would I withhold. Take my intellect, and use every power as Thou shalt choose. Verse 3 – Take my will, and make it Thine; it shall be no longer mine. Take my heart, it is Thine own; it shall be Thy royal throne. Take my love, my Lord, I pour at Thy feet its treasure store. Take myself, and I will be ever, only, all for Thee. CCLI Song # 1390 © Words & Music: Public Domain For use solely with the SongSelect® Terms of Use.

Benediction: May we accept God’s grace, and live new lives of faith, obedience, and joy! Go in peace! Amen

     Children’s Message: Hello! We are going to be talking about things that are lost today. Have you ever lost something that you really cared about?… What did you do?… Did you look for it?… (Yeh) Did you stop looking before you found it?… (Yep) You did?… Well, there somebody who we need to praise greatly because He never stops seeking what is lost. That’s Jesus! He loves us so much that He never stops looking for us to find Him! He told a story once about having 100 sheep and leaving 99 of them where He knew they were safe to go find the 1 that was lost. He left the ones who He knew were secure and safe to go and find the 1 lamb until He found it and He brought it back into the fold of sheep so it was safe. That’s pretty special isn’t it?… Jesus cares so much about us. We are His lambs. And He is going to keep hunting for us if we are lost, no matter what. Jesus also told the story of a woman who once had ten silver coins and lost one. She looked everywhere! She even got a flashlight and broom out to sweep the floor to try and find the coin. Did you ever do that, trying to find a coin or a small toy that you dropped?…(No) Well, we’ve done that, especially when having little kids or pets around that we didn’t want finding those things and maybe put them in their mouths and swallowing them. I even get down on my hands and knees when I look for those kinds of things. We keep looking until we find it. For the woman it was very special to her, because all she had were those 10 coins, and she needed that 1 coin. So she kept looking until she found it! So that’s what we need to do when we are thinking about Jesus, because there are a lot of people who are lost, and we need to help find the lost sheep for Jesus. He’s no longer here on earth that He can physically go and look for the lost sheep. Who are the lost sheep, do you know?… (No) They are the people who don’t know Jesus. So we need to go out and find people who don’t know about Jesus, and then what do we need to do?… (Tell them about Jesus) Yes, we need to tell them about Jesus, and about His love and salvation! So then we become the shepherds, and we help Jesus to shepherd His sheep and help them learn about Him, so they’re not lost anymore. Let’s pray… God of forgiveness: We know that sometimes we make mistakes. It brings us joy to know that You love us and forgive us when we do, and You bring us back like a lamb into the sheepfold. Lord, help us to turn away from sin and help us to turn instead toward You. Help us to show others the joy we have in knowing that You love us. Amen.

Choir: “Come Now and Praise His Name” ~ Lippencott

          As we come to our time tithes and offerings, once again we thank all of you who are faithful to giving to the mission that we have to our Lord and Savior. Let’s pray, as we dedicate our tithes and offerings that have been given back to the Lord’s this week … God of relentless love, the Gospel reminds us of the joy You feel when one of Your children chooses the path of repentance and redemption. We picture the celebration in Your heart when that choice is made. We also know how prone we are to wander off that path as we pursue those things that satisfy ourselves only. Receive the gifts we offer this day as a sign of our striving to get back on the path that leads us to You. We pray in the name of Jesus the Christ, the light on our path! Amen. Let’s stand as we’re able as we praise our Lord for His many blessings, singing the Doxology; “Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heav’nly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! Amen”

The funeral was on this Wednesday, and we had a funeral dinner for the family. -We need to continue praying for Danny Baker he is now at ProMedica Skilled Nursing and Rehab at 85 – 3rd St. S.E.

They aren’t given the opportunity as most have to spend time grieving, because they have to step right into their new role in leading the countries. Also, I encourage you to look for quotes from Queen Elizabeth II, because she was a blessed, saved woman, who was a good witness for Christ. -Prayers for Christ’s Church, all churches, all denominations. We need to be praying for God’s guidance in everything in His Church. -Several Unspoken requests   Let’s take all of this to the Lord in prayer. Father God, Thank You for Your many blessings! You answer our prayers when we bring them to You, and so many times we don’t even realize it, or other times we struggle because it’s not done the way we want or answered in the time we want. But we know that it is in Your own understand and mercy that they are answered. Lord, be with each one who has been named to You in our spoken and unspoken prayer requests. Especially on this day, be with those who were with those who were perishing on 9-11, and those who perished after the fact. Lord, we pray for those families, we pray for those friends, and we pray for our country as we continue to grieve that loss. Lord, we also pray for England and Great Britain, and all those who followed the Queen. And for the struggle that is there, Lord, in the transition after 70 years, because we know that change is difficult. Each one has to take things in individually, and with a new leader we ask that he makes decisions through Your guidance according to Your will. We trust You to deal with each need according to Your will and we know that all is for the best in the end. You call to the lost for You, and we know that You are always calling out to them. You call to the least, as we are to do as well. And also, Lord, You call to those who are longing for home, when so many feel homeless. Even if they are physically not. We ask that You lead us to reach out to all who are struggling, looking for a place to belong. When we wander from the path chosen for us, Lord, and waste the gifts that You have given us, we ask that You help us to turn back to You to focus on what is important. Let us celebrate and rejoice in Your presence forever, as we prepare for Your message and pray the prayer that Jesus taught us to pray: Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen.

Our Hymn of Preparation is UMH #98, “To God Be the Glory.” (By Fanny Jane Crosby & William Howard Doane) Verse 1 – To God be the glory great things He has done! So loved He the world that He gave us His Son; Who yielded His life an atonement for sin, And opened the life gate that all may go in. Chorus – Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the earth hear His voice! Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the people rejoice! O come to the Father through Jesus the Son, And give Him the glory great things He has done! Verse 2 – O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood, To every believer the promise of God; The vilest offender who truly believes, That moment from Jesus a pardon receives. Chorus, Verse 3 – Great things He has taught us, Great things He has done, And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son; But purer, and higher, and greater will be Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.

Scripture: Our message comes today from Luke 15. I’m reading verses 1-10. All the tax collectors and sinners were gathering around Jesus to listen to him. The Pharisees and legal experts were grumbling, saying, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose someone among you had one hundred sheep and lost one of them. Wouldn’t he leave the other ninety-nine in the pasture and search for the lost one until he finds it? And when he finds it, he is thrilled and places it on his shoulders. When he arrives home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Celebrate with me because I’ve found my lost sheep.’ In the same way, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who changes both heart and life than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need to change their hearts and lives. “Or what woman, if she owns ten silver coins and loses one of them, won’t light a lamp and sweep the house, searching her home carefully until she finds it? When she finds it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Celebrate with me because I’ve found my lost coin.’ 10 In the same way, I tell you, joy breaks out in the presence of God’s angels over one sinner who changes both heart and life.” The Word of God for the people of God. Praise be to God!      

Message: This message today is about Lost or Found. I read the first 10 verses about the lost sheep and the lost coin. If I would have read on it is also about the Prodigal Son, and how he was lost for so long. In that the father did not go out looking for him. He waited for the son to realize the wrong he had done, and waited for him to return. And in his return, the father rejoiced, rejoiced for the son’s turning back, coming back to what he knew, and coming back to be with family. Now his brother wasn’t quite so accepting, and they really don’t tell us much more about the brother other than about his grumping and grumbling. But we know that they had a big celebration, celebrating as Jesus also said that we are to celebrate for the 1 lost lamb that was found, and also the celebrating for the lost coin that was found, as well. Today we remember this date, because 21 years ago the unthinkable happening, 9-11-2001. We remember so much. And this morning it was all over the news. There were people remembering their experiences on that day. Remembering the pain emotionally, the heart-sickness! The remembering of sending loved ones off. The remembering of the rescuers going off to serve people that they didn’t know. Fulfilling their pledge to do that, and never returning because they gave their lives! There were so many other stories shared from that day when they didn’t make it to work, some didn’t even make it into New York City, when that was there regular daily schedule. And we wonder, why did some make it and some perished? When others were saved, because they were late, not catching their rides into town, or overslept, various different reasons. We wonder why?… But God knows, and only God knows why things happened the way they did!  Only He understands, and we probably never will. Unless He allows us to know when we enter heaven with Him, we may never know. But maybe on that day, it won’t matter because we will be there glorifying Him, praising Him for all He has done, and will do. Our minds today are in a lot of places. Many of us have been found. Some of us are still struggling, and are still lost. We have the hope of being found. And we know that Christ is not going to stop trying until we harden our hearts to Him or until we come to Him. Some may never be found. But we need to be helping, helping Jesus to find those, because we still have hope. We don’t have to let it be done with today, unless Christ decides to come back today. But we also know that we have a limited amount of time. Jesus in His day met everyone. He met with those who were lost, especially. Jesus ate with sinners, and He was chastised for it. The Pharisees and the religious leaders were not happy with Jesus. “Why do you gather with them? Why do you spend time with those who are unworthy?” And what was Jesus’ answer?… He told stories. He gave stories about the lost. I think He was trying to get the leaders to know that He was searching out those who were lost. And those who were gathered with Him were those who were lost, who would be found. We ourselves struggle with meeting with those who are outright sinning. We struggle with being with them, because we are concerned about what others might think! I remember when my husband was told when he arrived at a new church that there was a bar on the curve as you come out of town, and no one better ever see his car parked in that parking lot. And my husband said, “You might be surprised.” Because there is nothing wrong with someone who parks at the bar, and even goes into the bar, and eats with sinners, because we need to seek those who are lost. And that’s not saying that every bar is filled with sinners. There are people who go in and socialize. There are people who go in and have one drink and go about their business. And the Bible says, don’t overdo. That is all between You and God! But we need to be sure to not be the people saying, “I better not see your car parked at the bar!” Because Jesus was eating with sinners, but He did not sin with them. We have to know the difference. We have to know the difference! Because if we fail to stay strong in Christ, and fail to know the difference between what is a sin and what is not, we risk being drawn into their sins. By staying strong in Christ however, we have the potential of leading sinners to Christ for salvation and future service in Him. That is making disciples! You can’t make disciples by going to disciples. You can help disciples grow and mature, but you don’t make new disciples by staying away from those who aren’t yet disciples! We have to intermingle! We have to be with sinners! This is how God’s Kingdom grows. Jesus seeks and saves the lost. He is still here spiritually through the Holy Spirit, helping those who are lost to feel the need for a place to belong. The Holy Spirit puts that on all hearts. He here with us spiritually giving us the strength to go and do what needs to be done to make disciples. That’s part of our purposes, and the main purpose we have here on earth. And many times I look at 9-11 and think all of the people who perished that day had either fulfilled their purpose or had already hardened their hearts to Christ. God gives us the chances that He has for us to fulfill the purposes that He has placed us here to do. Remember that we have the reminder that if we wake up in the morning God has a place for us to be and a job for us to do, even if it is praying and helping those who do what needs to be done. We need to remember that we have a purpose. Jesus says to rejoice with Him. We rejoice because He has found His lost sheep! We need to rejoice when we help find a lost sheep! We need to especially rejoice when we bring those lost sheep back to Christ, or to Christ for the first time! Rejoicing is what it’s all about! Rejoicing when the lost is found! Jesus shared the story about the woman who lost the coin. I shared with Ana what she did to find that lost coin?…I had forgotten that she also got a lamp. You light up the house, and you’re looking for what’s lost. You have a lamp or your flashlight that’s on your phone or a regular flashlight, and then if you still can’t find it you go and get a broom and make sure you find it in those little cracks and crevices. We sometimes have to go into the cracks and crevices of life to find the lost! We have to keep reminding ourselves that sometimes it’s hard to find them! But God guides us where we need to go, and we have to put our fears and anxieties behind us to find those who are lost. But why are we seeking the lost?… Because Jesus said that He will not return until every last soul has the potential of knowing Him. Every last person on this earth, at the time when Christ comes back, will have had the opportunity to know Christ. It doesn’t mean that they will accept Christ yet. But they at least have to have heard about Christ. We still have some folks out there in this world who have not heard yet. I’m amazed at how many people I come across in society, that when I mention Jesus, they get a blank look on their face, and it’s like, “Who’s that?” And you may say, “Nah, not in our country!” Yes, there are still people who have never heard the name of Jesus. There are children growing up, who all they are with are there family, and their family has never shared Jesus with them. We need to make sure that people have heard about Jesus! If nothing else, wear shirts that say something about Jesus. I know many of you have T-shirts that proclaim Christ’s Word. And that’s awesome! I’ve had so many comments about Christian T-shirts, asking me questions about it or people saying that they love the verse or even sking where I got the shirt.  It’s a witness! It’s a way to help people know who Jesus is if they have never heard His name before. And yes, when all are found who are supposed to be found, there will more rejoicing in heaven. Even if it’s just for one sinner who has been saved, who has chosen to change their heart and life. We need to make sure that it’s not just one. We need to make sure that it is many, as many as God brings us to! We need to make sure that we at least try! Jesus was always reaching out for the lost. We need to reach out, too, to all people, not just who we choose, to ALL people, ALL who we are led to. Just like Jesus, we should each go after at least the one. That is at least one of the purposes that God has put us here for. He has put all disciples on earth in order to make new disciples of Jesus, to at least go and get that one. That one who comes to mind probably right now, who you know is struggling! Or maybe you’re not sure if they’re struggling or not, but there name is coming to mind. Make sure after you leave here today that you make contact with that one. Just like Jesus, go after the one! Who is your one?… Who is God leading you to?… We are all either lost or found! We need to be thinking about it! When we are lost, all is not lost. We still have an opportunity as long as we still have a breath. We don’t know if we still have an opportunity once we come face to face with the Triune God in heaven after we pass away. We don’t know! We need to make a commitment before we take our last breath! Jesus; God, the Father; the Holy Spirit: the Triune God is still seeking each one, ready to turn lives around, ready to turn lives back to Him! Gathering each one to be the people of God. Let’s rejoice in God’s mercy that He gives so many chances to make that last turn around! And the mercy that He gives to each one, unless they have hardened their hearts, He knows the opportunity is still there. Satan doesn’t have anyone who God is still seeking. And Satan doesn’t have anyone who He is still leading us to. Christ won already! Yes, Satan is able to take a few, and according to Revelation He takes many with Him, because people fail to focus on God. Let’s make sure we are among the found, and that we take many with us! Think about it, who’s your one? Let’s Pray… O Most Patient God, we recognize how much we need you for life itself, to be able to live eternally with You. But how often have we behaved as if we did not know or even care about You? And how often have we left others who we knew were struggling behind? How often have we become the ones who don’t carry out justice?… The ones who leave others along the side of the road when they need help?… How often have we tried to dominate others, even as you stand with them, and we try to make them think like we do whether our thoughts are right or not?… Lord, we ask that You help us to bring the desolation of Your creation around, to bring it back to You. We want to be among those whom you seek, and to be with You in seeking others for You. Shower Your mercy upon us, and shower Your mercy upon others who are yet to come. Find us and lead us safely home to faithfulness. In Christ’s name we pray, Amen.

Our closing song is UMH #400 – “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing” (By John Wyeth & Robert Robinson) Verse 1 – Come Thou fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing Thy grace; Streams of mercy, never ceasing, Call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious sonnet, Sung by flaming tongues above. Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it, Mount of Thy redeeming love. Verse 2 – Here I raise mine Ebenezer; Hither by Thy help I’m come; And I hope, by Thy good pleasure, Safely to arrive at home. Jesus sought me when a stranger, Wandering from the fold of God; He, to rescue me from danger, Interposed His precious blood. Verse 3 – O to grace how great a debtor Daily I’m constrained to be! Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, Bind my wandering heart to Thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, Prone to leave the God I love; Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, Seal it for Thy courts above.

Benediction: May we who have been found by the grace and overwhelming love of God, now become those who seek with grace and joy. Go into your world with open eyes and longing hearts. And may the peace of God resonate in every invitation and every welcome. Amen
