No matter how it looks, let’s not be scared of the future for God is on our side.
In the chaos and confusion of the elections here in the USA, let us not forget that Jesus is on the throne always and we are guaranteed eternal life. This life is a temporary stop to our forever home.
Sheltering in place in the USA is one thing but I cannot imagine doing so in the Philippines. IF you are in the Philippines; let us know how COVID-19 has changed your day to day life. In the meantime, you are always in our prayers. – PJJP
Luke 15:1, 3-4
“Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear him…Then Jesus told them this parable: ‘Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?”
Are we actively pursuing “lost sheep”?
Are we willing to leave behind our friendships, social network, family and even church involvements to pursue, go after lost sheep?
Are we willing to go after lost sheep until they are found?
This re-orientation of priorities is radical and rare among God’s people. The lost sheep are the “low hanging fruit.” They know what it means to follow the Shepherd; they once grazed next to us, but now they have wondered off.
Who is pursuing them?
Who is going after them?
Jesus was on a mission to pursue lost sheep. He still is.
Lord Jesus, fill me with your love for people who have wandered away from your family. I desire to live on your mission and not just for myself.
It’s hard to go after lost sheep when you are judgmental. Love one another as Jesus has taught us. That will open the door to all. PJSLB
