Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Change, For we have been given life to serve He who has given all! I Thank you Lord that we are not bound to who we used to be in this world, but have the opportunity to change. I Thank you Father that in all your doing, you would leave the 99, to find the one lost sheep!
It is Written, “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.” Luke 15:1-7
Prayer: Father, Who my heart is always for your Children, but by your standard, may our purpose in this life be seeking those Sheep who are lost! For we do this all in Jesus Name, Amen!
