Lost and Found!

In Luke 15 we read of a shepherd who lost and found one of his 100 sheep, of a woman who lost and found one of her 10 silver coins, and a father who lost and found one of his 2 sons. It may seem foolish to leave the 99 behind and go after the one, but the one was valuable, lost and in danger and the search was vital.
God cares about every single individual, His love for every one of us is beyond measure. His love is so great that He will seek out each one, because we are precious to Him, especially those who are so very lost. And when he finds them there is much rejoicing in heaven just as there was a party in each of the stories in Luke 15.
The thing is that just as each of us was lost before God came and sought us out, there are millions more who are still lost. God is still searching for them because His desire is that all should be 'found' and saved. So, don't lose heart. Keep praying for the lost, for those who have wandered off to wild living and the 'pigs'. Pray for them, spiritually call them out from the darkness of the enemy’s clutches for no one is beyond God's reach. God enlists us to help in the search because each one is highly valued and worth seeking out.
And when He finds them, there will be much rejoicing in heaven just as there was when we were found!
