The Lost Get Found

There is a singer, by the name of Britt Nicole. She's a Christian artist, and one of her songs is called, "The Lost Get Found." I'm in love with it right now. It talks about not being afraid to tell people about Christ, because that is how the lost people get found. It's about being brave to speak the name of Jesus in a world where He is disappearing.

My question to you is, are you afraid to talk about God?

Are you afraid to proclaim the name of Jesus?
Luke 9:26 -- If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
I know that I wouldn't want to stand before God one day and know that His son, the Lamb of God, is ashamed of me before Him, because I was too ashamed of Him on earth.

That's a mouthful right?

What I'm trying to get at, is that we need to be proud to speak the name of Jesus.
Romans 1:16 -- I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.
Keep this verse in your heart. Memorize it. Believe it. Live it.

So many people need Christ in their life, but if everyone is too afraid to share His name, then how are the lost going to be found? Aren't we denying Christ if we don't share Him? Aren't we disobeying? Jesus says that people need to know the Truth, and that as His disciples, we will face trials in this, but that our reward will be great.

As Britt Nicole puts it:

Don't let your lights go down.
Don't let your fire burn out.
Cause somewhere, somebody needs a reason to believe.

Why don't you rise up now?
Don't be afraid to stand out.
That's how the lost get found.

Why do we go with the flow?
Why take the easier road?
Why are we playing it safe?
Love came to show us the way.
Love is a chance we should take.

I'm moving out of the gray.

There are people out there that need someone. They need you.
You are the light of the world. (Matthew 5:14)
You are the salt of the earth. (Matthew 5:13)
Don't be afraid to stand out and be different in a world of like mindedness. Be different, and make people wonder.

After all..that's how the lost get found.

  1. Great way to put this. I do believe that many might want to get close to God, but are too ashamed of what others may think. They don't want to be the one that stands out. People need to put their pride aside and open up their heats. If we all cared what others think then we would never accomplish anything in life. It's not peoples' opinion's that matter anyways. The only opinion that matters is Gods!
    Every time I start to feel that urge to be quiet about my beliefs, that people may be starting to wonder about what's going on with me, I know that is the devil. I tell him "You cannot have me! I am God's and I do right by him!" I pray and then feel so filled with the holy spirit. It's the greatest feeling ever!!! I will forever spread the good news about Jesus! <3 :)


with love.
