Last, Lost, Least

Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

This past weekend my wife and I were in PA for her family reunion. One of my favorite parts of the reunion is the outdoor church service we have Sunday morning. Bro. Ron Overly brought the message again this year, one that would be titled something to the effect of “Last, Lost, Least”. It was a good illustration of who Jesus was, in Bro. Ron’s words, partial to.

In a nutshell, these three categories cover every person in the history of the human race. Though each one may not endeavor to be any of these things we all most certainly start out lost. And as we grow in our Christian lives we do begin to seek after being both last and least, in the example our Lord set for us. In other words, the more we grow and mature, the more we ought to desire a servant’s heart like Jesus’.
