You cannot be lost unless you belong. That's such a simple statement yet so profound.
Unfortunately the world around us has completely missed the fact that they belong to someone his name is Jehovah.
Jesus gives us three examples of things that were lost and then found in Luke 15.
First of all we have the lost coin. Notice the woman in whose house the coin was lost.
It was in the house of the woman who owned it. There were no strangers in that house looking for the coin. We would call them thieves. Didn't Jesus say that the thief comes to steal kill and to destroy but I have come to give you life and that more abundantly.
So the one who owns you already is the one who gives you life. It's not the thief he's come to steal he doesn't hold you.
The question then comes down to who really is in charge of the world who has the title deed to the cosmos and all that live within it. Didn't David the writer of the Somme say that the earth is the lords and all that are in it?
If you were temporarily in the hock shop that has already been taken care of. You have been redeemed back to the father by the cross and the resurrection and the power of his blood.
That's why the scriptures declare that you have been bought with a price therefore glorify God in your mortal bodies.
That statement is not just to Christians who have confess Christ as Savior. That declaration has gone out to the entire world they have been bought and paid for their rightful master is God himself.
That's the good news that comes out of the story of the prodigal son and the father that was waiting to receive him. He never stopped being a son even though he had lost it all and was living with the pigs. The gospel message is and always has been come home the father loves you you're still my son.
