Some Pharisees and experts in the law complained to Jesus for welcoming and eating with sinners and tax collectors.
Jesus replied, “Which one of you if he has a hundred sheep and loses one of them, would not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go look for the one that is lost until he finds it?” (Luke 15:3)
May we never cease to search for the lost or help the found. After all, we were all lost at some point in our own life but helped by others along the way. Return the help received with gratitude and thanks.
Lord Jesus, today we pray for those who have heard your message but have gone astray and those who have yet to listen. May they quickly realise that only You have the words of eternal life.
Lord, let my faith be full and unreserved,
and let it penetrate my thoughts.
Lord, let my faith be joyful,
and give peace and gladness to my spirit.
Lord, let my faith be humble,
and let it surrender to the testimony of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
