"Have You Found Jesus Yet...?" (Luke 19:10)

In the movie, Forrest Gump, Lt. Dan, played by Gary Sinise, cynically asks Forrest, played by Tom Hanks, “Have you found Jesus yet, Gump?”


Startled by the question, Forrest replies, “I didn’t know I was supposed to be looking for him, sir!”




Forrest’s reply was honest, but his is the response of many people in this world, but for different reasons. He thought that everyone knew where Jesus was. The irony, of course, is most people don’t or worse, think they do, and don’t care.


For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.

Luke 19:10 (ESV)


God understands this, after all, He created all of us. He knows there is nothing in us that would compel  us to seek Him. Thus, He took the initiative to find us by sending His Son, Jesus Christ. What kind of God would do this? He is a God who loves us with such a perfect love that He would forsake His very life to save ours. All we need to do is confess and repent of our sins and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.


Did you know that Jesus is seeking you? Have you found Jesus yet?


Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
