I think it must be kindly said that the very fact that she knew not regarding Him was matter of carelessness and forgetfulness, which is so common to us all as we journey along the pathway of life.
The worry that came on her at the close of the day when Jesus was missing was due to the fact that she had not investigated early in the morning and made certain that all the members of the family were in her company How many of us have experienced anxiety, pain and regrets of various kinds over a failure to do something earlier that might have prevented some calamity, unpleasantness or sadness from coming upon us. If I had investigated more, if I had only done this or that none of this would have happened to me.
But we supposed everything was alright, just like Mary did. Supposing can cause a lot of problems. Secondly, I would suggest to you that Mary is not the only one who lost Christ. It is a most disturbing fact that we Christians can lose Him. Jesus said, "Where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them. Jesus was a precious treasure to Mary, and He is a precious treasure to Christians.
Jesus Christ is ours; not our Son but our Brother. Not our child but our Friend. More than anything else He is our Lord and Savior. He belongs to us spiritually. It is possible for us to lose His company. Paul predicted that in times later to his time, a great falling away from the truth would take place 2 Thess.
Paul wrote to Jewish Christians in Heb. He who abides in me bears much fruit, for without Me you can do nothing. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit He takes away.
If we have departed from the living God, if we have fallen away from the church, if we are no long influenced by His teachings, if we do not abide in Christ, then it can be truly said, "We have lost Christ. Supposing that we have not lost Him will not make it true. Mary supposed He was in the company but he wasn't.
Many of God's people have lost H im down through the ages, and it is a disturbing thought we Christians can lose Him. How then can Christians know they have not lost Him?. He is not visible to us as He was to Mary. We see Him only with the eye of faith. The apostle tells us how we can know we have not lost him in I John , "If we walk in the light as God is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Thirdly, it is necessarily implied that if Christians can lose Christ then unbelievers can lose Christ. She scours everything in the place, finds the coin. Then He tells a third story, this one a rather long one, about a man who had two sons. And what happened when he came back? Yes, you find a lost sheep; yes, you find a lost coin; yes, you find a lost son. But in each case, what was the response? Now, who is the father in the prodigal son story? Who is leading the party? Who is leading the rejoicing?
Go back now to verse 7, and here is the little explanation of the first parable. You know what really gets heaven excited? Conversion, salvation. That is what gets heaven into celebration mode. I see the Father God leading the celebration. Now, why did the Son come to seek and save the lost?
Because that is the ultimate joy of the eternal God and His holy, godly angels. It is the heart of God. It is the heart of Christ. Now, lastly, Jesus taught His disciples to evangelize. Do you remember what He said when He called them? Why did Jesus call the disciples? You tell me. The purpose statement for Christ, Luke The purpose statement for the disciples?
And that is exactly what the legacy of Christ is to us. We are also to be fishers of men. Now, there was a lot of work in training the disciples.
I mean basically they were a tough bunch to work with. They needed a lot of training, and Christ worked with them for three years. And that training was primarily evangelistic training.
Do you understand that? The parables, for example, of Matthew 13, all about understanding the environment in which you evangelize. The instruction of Matthew 10, all about expecting the persecution, the hostility, the difficulty when you evangelize. The training was primarily training for evangelism.
And they needed a lot of help. First of all, they had a great lack of spiritual perception. They were real blockheads about spiritual issues — like us. They lacked sympathy; they were heartless on many occasions. They lacked humility. They lacked sensitivity. They lacked persevering prayer. They lacked courage. They lacked boldness. They lacked faith. He had a lot of work to do on them - and on us - but the raw material was there.
Remember on that wonderful Day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came and they spoke in those amazing languages the wonderful things of God? Do you remember why the Holy Spirit came? It must be consistent with the purpose of God. John the Baptist comes in as an evangelist to announce the arrival of the Messiah, who is an evangelist, who trains men to be evangelists. Sends them to evangelize the world and to write the New Testament which calls us to evangelism, gives us all the Holy Spirit in order that we might evangelize.
John Harper was called to pastor the Moody Church in t he early s. He went down with the Titanic. And W. Riley related the death of Harper. For survivors brought to harbor in safety told it to us. When the Titanic was struck by the iceberg that drove in her sides and sent the ship to the bottom, John Harper was leaning against the railing, pleading with a young man to come to Christ. When I was drifting alone on a piece of wood that awful night, the tide brought Mr.
John Harper of Glasgow on a piece of wreckage near me. And there, alone in the night, and with two miles of water under me, I believed. We ask, Lord, that You might give us a sense of Your love, Your compassion, Your tenderness, Your mercy; that You might help us to understand the guilt, the power, the penalty of sin; that You might help us to understand the gnawing, nagging pain, the feeling of guilt, the unfulfillment that sinners feel. Father, that You might help us to understand what the Bible says about sin and judgment, death and hell, salvation as well, heaven.
Father, help us to see all these things in truth, to understand them all in order that we might have the compassion of Christ. And help us to pray faithfully that You will lead us to those that we can reach with the saving gospel. We acknowledge that we can do nothing in our strength to save ourselves, and we can do nothing in our strength to lead anyone else to You.

But what was it, apart from His divine nature, that made Him effective as an evangelist. And that great light shown from out of the court of the women at the temple, and now the time is over and the light is out. People have left our church because we changed their classroom, or because new people were parking in the area they like to park in. Most of the members wanted to stop the life-saving activity altogether because it was unpleasant and a hindrance to the normal social life of the club. We might surmise that the prophets of Jehovah today seem to be about as impotent as the priests of Baal in calling down fire from heaven. He I See No Wrong With Jesus - Shasha Marley - Lost & Found (CD) not visible to us as He was to Mary. A little lady who had had an issue of blood for a long time, had reached out a hand and taken hold of the tassel that hung on His garment, which was worn by Orthodox Jews as a symbol of their Judaism. In case you have the lyrics to Evil Spirits Walk Away and want to send them to us, fill out the following form:. They had seen the great credential; they had heard His teaching; they had seen a myriad of other miracles that same day.
