"'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.' 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."
It is hard to believe that all of heaven is so ecstatic over little you, isn’t it? But it is true. You are a most loved and honored “sheep” of your Shepherd. He left all the other 99 sheep to go find you. He longed for you to repent and return to Him, even as He went out to find you.
The joy of finding something lost is a delight we all know. The next time you find something or someone who had been lost, remember the joy the Lord had for you when you returned to Him!
DON'T DOUBT THE JOY THE LORD HAS FOR YOU WHEN YOU RETURN TO HIM. YOU WERE LOST, BUT NOW ARE FOUND!
