During the Vietnam war there is a story about a paratrooper who had been airdropped into the jungle and couldn’t find his way out. A native guide had to be sent into the jungle to find the lost man and lead him safely to his base.
The first step in finding your way home when you are lost, is to acknowledge that you are lost. Only then are you able to accept the gift that a guide has to offer. In the same way, God sent Jesus to guide his lost sinners home.
“I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
