The Boys Scout of America highlights that to be a Scout is to be in a profession with a purpose. But what does the word “Scout” mean and would we be able to consider Jesus as a Scout? Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines the word “Scout” as “to find by making a search”.
Jesus likened himself to be the Good Shepherd (John 10:11) who would go in search of the one lost sheep and not return until he has found it. In this regard, Jesus is The Scout, whose purpose is to find those who are lost without God. Jesus is The Scout with a purpose.
Points to ponder:
If you are lost without God, take solace, for Jesus The Scout is searching for you and wishes to find you. Hide not from him, but be ye found by Him!
Luke 15:4 (KJV)
4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
John 10:11 (KJV)
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
