Devotional : Loving the Lost
As Christians, we understand in our minds that we need to share the Gospel, but do we feel it in our hearts? This devotional looks at the role our emotions play in allowing us to truly understand God's love for the lost and our role in leading them to Christ.

Then something happened that changed her life forever. A couple came from 10,000 miles away, at great expense, and adopted her into their family. She just turned five, and believe me, she’s not an orphan anymore. She belongs!

I’ve been on airplanes where we had an emergency landing, but at least we had a runway to land on. When a flock of birds disabled the engines of US Air Flight 1549 as it was taking off from New York, there was no way their powerless plane could find a runway. In what the Governor of New York called “the miracle on the Hudson”, that plane landed intact on the Hudson River. And amazingly, all 155 on board got off safely, thanks in large part, to the people who converged on that fallen plane to rescue them including men in business suits and other commuters who were heading home on commuter ferry boats. They weren’t professional rescuers, but they were where the people in danger were, and as one Fox News anchor said, “Ordinary people became first responders.”

I’m Ron Hutchcraft, and here's the word picture Jesus used to explain how much He loves us: "If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one who wandered off?" (Matthew 18:12,13). You know, He said in His personal mission statement that He came "to seek and save what was lost" (Luke 19:10).

Recently I was taken on a tour of a building that houses several ministries, including what the guide identified as the Christian Bow Hunters’ Association. Well, that got my attention. My guide explained that these brothers have regular get-togethers that reach out to men who love bow hunting as they do, but who don’t know their Jesus. And it’s really working or hitting the mark you might say.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - Slaves No More - #9188 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
I can only imagine the unspeakably deep feelings of my African-American brothers and sisters with the historic inauguration of America’s first black President. The milestone stands at the pinnacle of a story that begins with slave ships, shackles, segregation and shame. What could have been more degrading than to be owned by another human being and listed as property? It’s no wonder many of those slaves risked their lives trying to be free. History tells us that some who made it out were buried with just four telling words on their tombstones: “Born slave, died free.”

With Martin Luther King’s birthday approaching, I remember the amazing story of John Parker. ... I’m Ron Hutchcraft, and John Parker had it made. After two attempts to escape being a slave to a Southern slave owner, he’d finally gotten his freedom, and he chose to live in Ripley, Ohio on the freedom side of the Ohio River. He got a house and a good job; ultimately, owned a foundry. He was safe, secure and successful. ... But night after night, John Parker risked it all.

Now he’s led the Arizona Cardinals through a great season with a string of games where he’s passed for over 300 yards. But it’s not Kurt Warner’s ageless football ability that makes him an MVP in life. It’s what he does with the position he’s got.

Clearly, the only hope for the passengers of Flight 1549 was a rescue. That’s something I understand all too well. Not because I’ve ever needed a physical rescue. But because I was in a situation where I would have died if a rescuer had not come.
