I can never forget the year that I lost a very close relative, it was an experience that is not pleasant. The memories of good times spent together comes troubling the mind. The days after were scary moments and almost everyone wears the mask of sadness.

However, there is another way people get lost, and that’s in sin. The wages of which is death. People who have not given their lives to Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior are lost in sin. And because they are sinners, they are separated from God forever.

The scripture talks about Adam, who often and always was in the bosom of God, and he do have constant fellowship with God. In fact the scripture says God do come down and talk with him face to face like a father to his son in the cool of the day.

 Nevertheless, Adam got separated from God, reason being that he failed the test of obedience that God gave him. “Do not eat…” and He does ate, and as a result sin entered into the world and got man separated from God. “The scripture says God send him out of the Garden of Eden (The place of His presence) and he was forever separated from God, he was lost (For God cannot behold iniquity).

This experience of the first man made every other man born into this world to be in sin and under the power of sin. “Behold I was shapen in iniquity and in sin did my mother conceive me” Psalm 51:5. The course of which Christ came as a sacrifice, to die for the sins of the whole world. Isaiah 53:6. As many as they that are in Christ are then translated into the family of God.  
Hebrew 12: 22-24
But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel

People who are lost are not part of the family of God, they don't have God's peace when things go wrong, they never feel the joy God gives to His children they don't have the assurance that God will answer their prayers when things goes all wrong.
When lost people die, they are separated forever from God.  For the wages of sin is death. They will never be able to be with God in the beautiful place called Heaven that He has prepared for those who love Him. Instead, they will go to a terrible place of suffering and punishment called Hell.

Meanwhile, these people who have not known Christ, or given their lives to him by accepting Him as their personal Lord and Saviour may not know that they are lost, most especially in sin, and they may not know either the wages that follows. They may never know the joy of being a child of God, the blessedness of having the Holy Spirit and the Word of His grace etc.  

For this purpose, it is of great importance for us, as Christian, to take upon ourselves the work of an ambassador of Christ, beseeching and telling them that Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven. " . . . 2 Corinthians 5:20: “For we are ambassadors for Christ…”. Jesus said, No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). Of course, I believe you do have someone you can talk to about Christ this week, please do. 
Share the word of his grace.
