Navigating the Maze
“For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost” (Matt. 18:11).
Have you ever tried to get through a maze? Once, while on a family vacation many years ago, my youngest brother and I tried to get through one. It looked simple enough at first, however, once we embarked on our quest it quickly became evident that we were lost. Finally, the attendant came to us and said, “Follow me,” and then showed us the way out.
Trying to navigate this life perfectly on our own is simply impossible. All who enter this maze end up lost. For this reason God sent His only begotten Son to seek us and to save us (Lk. 19:10). “Follow Me,” He said (cf. Matt. 9:9), and then He showed us the way (cf. Jn. 14:6).
Friends, if you are not following Christ then you are lost indeed.
