“Lost” Indicates Ownership

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

Nothing can be lost that is not first owned. Just as a parent is compelled by civil law to be responsible for his family and his property, so the Creator – by His own divine law – is compelled to take care of the children He has created. And that means not only caring for the good children, but for the bad ones and lost ones as well. So the word “lost” came to be for Mrs. [Hannah Whitall] Smith a term of greatest comfort. If a person is a “lost sinner” it means only that he is temporarily separated from the Good Shepherd Who owns him. The Shepherd is bound by all duties of ownership to go after all those who are lost until they are found.
