WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LEAVE THE 99?

T

Take a look at this story Jesus told and consider what He is saying to you:

Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus.  But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

What is Jesus saying to you?

Here’s what it means to some of our friends in Chicago! Healing on the Streets in Chicago in the snow in January – seeking the lost!
This is doing the stuff no matter what the weather!

Can you leave your group in God’s hands and go after the lost? Can you be an example to the rest? Make a time in your schedule to go on mission at least once a week for an hour or two – go to the hospital, walk on the street, go to a coffee shop and look for someone to share God’s love with! That’s what we are trying to do. Let our hearts be like God’s heart for the lost!

Try it and see what God can do through you!
