This Print serves to remind me that we also have been called to remember the lost. The pilots pictured above had a love for Douglas Bader that compelled them to face danger to go looking for him. It challenges me to consider whether I have a similiar passion for the lost myself. The 'Gentiles' in the Bible were easily recognised and identified, but who falls into that category now in our time. Who are the ones who are abandoned, rejected, isolated, and feel far from God. It is a question which calls for careful reflection, for I believe that they are the one's to whom we must carry the message of a God's love.
As Christians we are a forgiven people. God has first loved us, and we reach out to others with that same selfless love: Grace.
We need to learn from the message of this day. God has come, He is with us and He has come to rescue us. If you consider yourself to be a contemporary "Gentile' I hope this blog encourages you to see that you are loved and may you find and experience that love in the lives of God's people.
If you are a Christian remember what you once were, and what you now are. That change was through God being at work in your life, and I warrant through the lives of others who went looking for you and brought you home.
