Without God We Are Lost

I want to tell you a storyóa story about John and his dog Blue.

John is a retired farmer, and of course, his dog, Blue, is a retired farmer's dog.

However, John still has a farm, and he still has some cattle; and every now and then John and Blue go and check the cattle.

Itís not as easy now for Blue because he is getting old and going blind. He canít see that well anymore.

But he is still a faithful dogóalways there when you want him.

You know, farmers have a saying: A dog is a manís best friend. I always wondered why farmers said that. I suppose it was a way of saying farmers got attached to their dog.

John was very attached to his dog, Blue.

Question - Do you have a pet?

We have a pet dogóhis name is Benji. We love our dog Benji.

Well, John loved his dog, Blue. One day John and Blue went mustering some cattle. John had to shift some cows from one paddock to another paddock. Even though Blue could not see that well, he still got in and helped John. After several hours, they had finished their work and they went back home.

When John got home, old Blue was no where to be found. John didnít think anything of it at the time. Thinking he must have went off wandering.

After awhile Blue still hadnít returned home. John started to worry about old Blue...maybe, he was bitten by a snake...maybe, he got caught in a fence or something like that.

So, John went looking for Blue. John was hoping that old Blue hadnít meet his end.

After some time, John found poor old Blue. His heart sank has he saw his beloved dog in the middle of the paddock.

There was a TEAR in Johnís eye as he looked at his old dog.

You know, John hadnít realised the seriousness of Blueís blindness.

You see, Blue wasnít dead, he was simply LOST, he didnít know which way to go to get home. So, he sat there in the middle of the paddock waiting for his master to come and show him the way home.

King David said, ďI wander about like a lost sheep, so come and look for me , your servant [Lord], because I have not neglected your laws [or word].

When I read that verse, it reminded me of this story that John told me about his dog.

Without God, we are like Blue, blind and lost. Not knowing where to go or what to do.

King David said the same thing. Without God, I am lost.

That's why King David said, "Come and look for me, Lord."

God has done everything possible to show you the way home. He has reached out to you and He has said, "Come to Me and I will guide and direct you through life" (Matthew 11:28; Proverbs 3:5-6).

King David also said, "The Lord is my Shepherd; I have everything I need. He lets me rest in pastures of green grass and He leads me to quiet pools of fresh water. He gives me new strength. He guides me in the right paths as He has promised.
