Luke 15:3-6

“What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it? And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy and, upon his arrival home, he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.'”

Jesus told this parable to Pharisees (religious leaders) after they had criticized him for eating with “sinners.” Jesus shows us the true character of God…who is not waiting to punish you…but is yearning to love you. Jesus shows us a God who will go to any length to restore you…heal you…include you and make you whole. That is salvation! Where is the place inside you that you feel that you are the “lost sheep” and that no one could possibly love you because of it? That is precisely the place where God wants to embrace you and say, “Fear not. I will never let you go. I love you.”
