Luke 15

Today we are reading Luke 15. In this chapter we read about the Lost Sheep. ”Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” So he told them this parable: “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 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 that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.“ Luke‬ ‭15‬:‭1‬-‭7‬ ‭ESV‬‬ What does this parable tell you about God’s concern for the lost? Who does God send to find the lost? Who needs no repentance? Have you ever grumbled about who God loves? May Gods use you to seek and find the lost. Pastor Tim
