This morning we were to read Luke 15. In the first part of Luke 15, Jesus is being criticized because he eats with publicans and sinners. He then rebukes, by giving them the example of if one of them lost a sheep would they go in search of it.
If we loose something little we look for it. We will turn the house upside down looking and searching and when we don't find the item we are looking for, we clean the house spotless. Jesus also gives the example of the woman who lost a coin and lit her candle in order to sweep her floors to find it.
Our group of girls were suppose to "Let our Lights shine for God" this month. To me a relationship with Christ is so much more important than any worldly object. We should light our candles daily, sweep out the dirt of the world, and seek the presence of God.
When a sinner repents and turns their life over to God, Heaven rejoices! We should give Heaven the chance to rejoice daily! We should strive to live like Christ daily!
"I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance." Luke 15:7
