I Lost It in the House, recorded live at Community Family Church in Independence, Kentucky, begins with two moving songs, both written by Pastor Tommy Bates: “Stay Onboard” (Mark Ellis and the CFC Ensemble) and “I’m Getting Back Up” (Eric Bates and the CFC Praise Team).
Lost and found is the theme of this fascinating message based on Luke 15:8-10:”…what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it? And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.” The lost piece of silver was dear to the women, for it was the one that completed a crown worn in public that signified her status in life, announcing to others that she belonged to one man. Pastor Bates vividly describes how empty we feel on discovering the loss of something valuable, something we love. We have this same sinking feeling when something spiritual goes missing while we’re in the house of the Lord, whether it be our peace, our love, our joy, our praise, or our desire to serve in some part of the ministry. Through the example of the women in Luke, God offers clear directions on how to proceed. Immediately after discovering her loss, she lit a candle in order to bring light into her search, just as we need to rely on the light God has given us: Himself, the Holy Spirit, and His Word. When God’s commandments shine brightly in our souls, we can recover whatever we have lost by sweeping our inner house in order to get rid of all the dirt and clutter that piles up in our minds and obscures His precious gifts.
We lose spiritual gifts in the house of God before we lose them in the world. And what is lost in His house must be found there, or we risk losing everything. It may be just one gift, but God wants us to experience them all, and to use them to show everyone that we belong to Him. He gives us our spiritual gifts, and He shows us how to reclaim them when they are lost, so before it’s too late, turn on God’s light and sweep out your house. You cannot afford to miss this powerful service.
