Leaving The 99 For The One

Scripture Reference: Matthew 18:12-14 NLT

12 “If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them wanders away, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others on the hills and go out to search for the one that is lost? 13 And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he will rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine that didn’t wander away! 14 In the same way, it is not my heavenly Father’s will that even one of these little ones should perish.

It is easy to bask in the grace of the Lord, forgetting where we once were and the the thing that we once liked doing that separated us from God. But now that we are found, it is the duty of every believer to help others come into the understanding that Jesus Christ is alive and still saving. Because once you too were lost, and because He left the 99 to come and find you, He will leave the 99 to find others as well. Every life is worth saving, every life is sacred, every life is precious to God.
