PAX took turns rolling two dice.  One die consisted of the numbers 10, 15 and 20.  The second die consisted of Merkins, American Hammers, Mountain Climbers, Burpees, Squats and Big Boy Sit Ups.  We matched the exercise to the number on each roll.  The PAX was high fiving and celebrating every time we rolled a 20 and burpee!

I wanted to talk about being lost and found today.  If you’re anything like me, you’ve certainly walked in the darkness in times throughout life.  Perhaps your relationship with the Lord has ebbed and flowed.  In recent weeks we’ve talked a lot about how we really don’t know what any one person is really going through in life, regardless of their position or status among us.  Over this past season of Lent, I’ve really tried harder to come closer to God.  To pray more, think more and act in certain ways.  When I think back on what’s better, living in the light, or living in the darkness, it’s without a shadow of doubt that being in the light and being close to Jesus is far better than any other situation.
Perhaps some of you are struggling to get there.  I’m not always there, that’s for sure.  But I just want to remind you that the invitation from Jesus will never ever go away.  His desire for your friendship is unshakeable.  Especially at this very moment in time, think about how unselfish of a friend he was to take up the cross and die so you and I can be saved, that our relationship with God could be restored.  Furthermore, as we celebrate Easter tomorrow, also remember that he rose again not only for our forgiveness, but that we may have life ever after. What a friend to have.  You can become transformed by your relationship with him.
But, if you’re ever feeling unworthy, I want you to recall three passages to help remind you that he will always be there for you.
Luke Chapter 15 talks about the Parable Son.  When the older son complains about a feast being thrown for the brother who squandered everything the Father says….” you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.”
Matthew Chapter 18 talks about the parable of the wandering sheep and Jesus says…”What do you think? 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 that wandered off?  And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.
Mark Chapter 2 talks about Jesus eating with Levi the tax collector and sinners.  When Jesus hears the teachers talking about him eating with sinners, he says “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
So if you’ve found yourself wondering, not worthy or anxious, just remember there nothing more the Lord wants than for you to be found.
