That Nothing May Be Lost

Do not ever forget that our Father in heaven's desire for all of His creation—and especially for you, dear Christian—is that nothing of it may be lost. That is a big lesson, though not the only lesson, from today's Gospel text. As John says at the end of His Gospel, Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. [John 20:30-31] The same could be said from the lessons to be learned even from this one miracle of our Lord.

So, for this morning, let us focus in on this one lesson and take it with us to carry us through the wonders and the problems, the blessings and the curses of the coming week-- that nothing of God's creation and gifts to us, and especially we ourselves, may be lost.
