Losing Something Irreplaceable

“The Lord ... would have no one lost,
but would receive all to repentance.”

2 Peter 3:9

Have you ever lost something very precious? If you have, then you’ve experienced the pain in missing it. It could be an irreplaceable family heirloom, valuable piece of jewelry, photograph of a loved one or - at worst - losing a loved one that has passed away. Regardless of the thing lost, there follows a sadness that cannot be satisfied.

Sinking_Ship While we as humans can grieve deeply over something lost, our Heavenly Father grieves even more deeply when one of his children is lost to the blessing that could await them in eternity with him in heaven. In today’s scripture, God daily grieves over thousands of his children that refuse to accept his offer of salvation and eternal life with him in heaven and unwittingly wind up in the place “prepared for the devil and his angels.” (Matthew 25:41)

The words salvation and saved comes from the Latin word “salvare” – that is, to save. When a ship has sunk, we speak about the souls that were either “lost” or “saved.” Just like those that are sent to the bottom of the sea to an eternal grave, those that refuse to be rescued from the ship of life that eventually sinks will be LOST.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ into your life and asked him to forgive you of your sins and believe in his offer of eternal life with God, then you are among “the saved.” The gift of salvation is free to all. There is no reason for anyone to be lost but that all accept the gift of salvation. Have you made that decision today? If not, step into that lifeboat of God’s love. Accept his free gift and be SAVED.
