4-7 “Suppose one of you had a hundred sheep and lost one.
Wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the lost
one until you found it? When found, you can be sure you would put it across
your shoulders, rejoicing, and when you got home call in your friends and neighbors, saying,
‘Celebrate with me! I’ve found my lost sheep!’ Count on it—there’s more
joy in heaven over
one sinner’s rescued life than over ninety-nine good people in no need of rescue.
Dear God, we are so happy that you gave your only son Jesus to die on the cross. We are so happy that you love us.
