TO LUKE: HEY WHAT’S UP LUKE, HOW HAVE YOU BEEN? I’M GLAD YOU ARE NOT LOST, BUT I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS LOST, LOST IN SIN, CAPTIVE TO THIS WORLD’S WAYS! THANK GOD WITH ME FOR JESUS CHRIST WHO CAME TO SAVE THE LOST! HOW MANY OF US WOULD BE WANDERING THROUGH THIS WORLD STILL IN DARKNESS AND WITHOUT A CLUE OF WHICH WAY TO GO TO FIND LIGHT! PRAISE JESUS FOR HIS GIFT OF SALVATION! FOR I WAS ONCE LOST BUT, NOW I AM FOUND, WAS BLIND, BUT NOW I SEE! AND THANK GOD FOR THE LITTLE NEIGHBORHOOD LADY THAT TOOK THE TIME TO HAND ME THE TRACT AND TO TELL ME ABOUT JESUS, IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR THIS STRANGER THERE IS A VERY GOOD CHANCE THAT I WOULD NOT BE HERE TO TELL THIS STORY!

“Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently until she find it?” Luke 15:8
“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19:10
