Luke 15:4-7 – 4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ 7 I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.
People may ask why a man would leave 99 of his sheep to go after 1 that had left. That is a great question and one that can only be answered with just one word — love. Even though the 1 was disobedient, it didn’t stop the man from loving it. Love caused him to go searching, love allowed the 1 lost sheep to be found. Are you the one? In other words, are you the one that has left the church, left your relationship with the Lord and are now wondering off alone? If you are, know that the Lord has not stopped loving you, not stopped pursuing you and desires that one day you will return to join the 99. His love never fails, never fades, is never finished.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
