Parable of the Lost Sheep

Are you a lost sheep? If you once were close to Jesus and have now drifted away, you can come back to Him. You are like a little lamb who is lost on the cliff. The Shepherd is looking for you. He hears your cries.

Luke 15

The Lost Sheep
1Now all the tax collectors and the sinners were coming near Him to listen to Him.

2Both the Pharisees and the scribes began to grumble, saying, "This man receives sinners and)eats with them."

3So He told them this parable, saying,

4What man among you, if he has a hundred sheep and has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?

5"When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

6"And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!'

7"I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

This is beautiful. I really love how you remind everyone that God is always there and loves us so much. He truly does care about us. Having had a child who was a "lost sheep" for awhile I identify with the shepherd in this story. I was very lucky in that he came back and came back so strong. He has a good wife who adores him and helps him reach his potential, just like God helps us reach ours. Thanks for stopping by. I really identify with you and your messages. Keep it up!
