LOST and found!
You know that feeling when you finally get that Pokemon you’ve been wanting for ages? No? Just me, then. 😉
That’s the way God feels when he brings one of his sheep back home, only a hundred million times more so. Luke 15:5-6 carries on the parable we looked at yesterday and says:
And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbours together and says, “Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.”
The shepherd is joyful when he finds the lost sheep – so joyful he calls all his friends round to show them.
Imagine how joyful God was when he brought you back home!
Imagine how happy the sheep was too, to be back with all the other sheep, safe in the pasture.
How does it make you feel to know that God found you and brought you back home?
Are you celebrating or do you miss the ‘wild places’ where you went your own way?
How dangerous is it really to live without God?
Talk to God about how you feel.
