We used to call potential converts “seekers,” but apparently the cool term is now “inquirer.” Although I think “inquirer” sounds like someone who buys up those checkout lane magazines about Elvis’s three-headed dragon living in a box of Cheerios. By the way, when it came to vocabulary, Jesus cut right to the chase. He called the unsaved “lost,” and he said it in a way that made the lost sound like the treasure we should all be out looking for. Now that’s cool.
This quote is an aside in a larger article, but I couldn’t get the thought of lost people being a treasure we should be out looking for out of my head. I often think of evangelism in "I Need To" terms or "They Need God" terms, but rarely in terms of seeking after a treasure. That is cool.
