Daily Devotional | 5.13.2019

Yesterday morning, I had the joy and privilege of teaching Sunday school at Summit United Methodist where my Mom is a member. It’s always a delight to see familiar, friendly faces of the faithful members of Mom’s church as well as her Sunday school class.

Sunday morning’s topic focused on rescuing those relationships in our life that are in need of reconciliation, especially with estranged family members. The Parable of the Lost Sheep (Luke 15:1-7) shaped the background of our Sunday morning discussion.

In the Parable of the Lost Sheep, we listen to Jesus as he explains to the religious experts of the day how God seeks those who have wandered off, not resting until He finds us and draws us near. The Lord rejoices in our salvation. He is overjoyed to have us back in right relationship with Him.

Prayer Time

How is God using you to reveal His love to others?

Blessings,

Luke 15:1-7 (NIV)

1Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. 2But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” 3Then Jesus told them this parable: 4“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? 5And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7I 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.
