Jesus said to his disciples:
“What is your opinion?
If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray,
will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills
and go in search of the stray?
And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it
than over the ninety-nine that did not stray.
In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father
that one of these little ones be lost.” (Mt 18:12-14)
As I have said, God does not want any of us to be lost.
He goes out of His way to bring us back to Him.
He offers us every opportunity possible to return.
Are you lost? Have you strayed? Return to the Lord!
