Sunday Devotional: The lost sheep

Jesus with black sheep by Jon McNaughton

Luke 15:1-7

Tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to Jesus,
but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying,
“This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” 
So to them he addressed this parable.
“What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them
would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert
and go after the lost one until he finds it?
And when he does find it,
he sets it on his shoulders with great joy
and, upon his arrival home,
he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them,
‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’
I tell you, in just the same way
there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents
than over ninety-nine righteous people
who have no need of repentance.”

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

~Eowyn

Thank you for this beautiful devotional and song. I am that lost sheep, too. I also ask for prayers from FOTM readers. I’m still struggling with my nephew’s suicide back in February.

The rest of the Gospel talks about the lost son who comes home. The father (God) loves his one so much he RUNS out to him as he see him. He KISSES him, he places a RING (a sign of the father’s protection) new CLOTHES and SANDALS. The father ran out to protect the son from the towns ppl. He would have been beaten and possible killed him for his actions against the father. God loves us so much He is willing to come to us and protect us from death if we only Deus, tu convérsus vivificábis nos. Et… Read more »
