Lost and Found
Luke 15:1-31 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him...
Jesus' parables of the lost sheep, the lost coin and the lost (prodigal) son in Luke 15 are rich with information for us to learn from and draw on. The predominant message I noticed today was that God rejoices every time someone repents and comes to know Him. But when I look a little deeper within that message I also see how much God loves and cares for us, and that He values relationship and desires to have one with us.
So how important is it that we tell others about having a relationship with Christ based on Luke 15? Did you learn anything about your relationship with God (or maybe I should say God's relationship with you) through these stories? Tami W.
