Have you ever lost something very valuable and then found it? Remember the relief and joy you had? This is how the Father feels when one of His children comes home.
Every person is supremely valuable to our Father and Jesus.
His ultimate plan is to bring home all His lost children. He came to seek and to save His children.
He and all His angels jump with joy when even one of us comes home to Him.
LUKE 15:7, NIV
7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
LUKE 19:10, NIV
10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”
Have you ever been physically lost? What emotions did you experience knowing that you could not find your way?
Stop and really feel these emotions again for a moment.
This is how desperate so many people are in our world today. When you realize how lost others are, it will motivate you to get past your fears and begin sharing the good news of Jesus Christ more often!
“Father God, it is such a fearful thing to be lost. I remember when I was lost and far from You. Help me not to get too comfortable that I forget how lost and broken people are in this world. I confess that sometimes I am lazy and lack the heart you have for people. I repent of this, Lord. Help me love others with eagerness today showing them who you are and what you want to do for them. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.”
