Since the Fall, mankind has continually been pushing away from God, losing their way in a world of sin and darkness. Our inherent moral flaws make it incredibly difficult for us to accept the things of God without His assistance. Without God’s intervention, the entire human race would be left lost and hopeless. Fortunately for us, God showed grace to the human race by offering up judgment on the serpent in the Garden of Eden–grace that made provision for us to find our way back to Him . This Sunday’s sermon at Grace Community Church courtesy of Daniel Orozco looks to build upon this mission of restoring lost souls by exploring how the church can act as an extension of the Kingdom of God with purposeful dedication towards finding those who are lost and broken–people that matter greatly to our heavenly Father.
Lost Souls Matter To God: Sermon By Daniel Orozco
Passage: Luke 19:1-10
19 He entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich. 3 And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small in stature. 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today.” 6 So he hurried and came down and received him joyfully. 7 And when they saw it, they all grumbled, “He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” 8 And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it fourfold.” 9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
