Luke 15:1-7 “The Savior and His Sheep”

The Bible compares us to sheep often, while this isn’t the best compliment, it is true. The good news is that Jesus is a really good shepherd, and he pursues his lost sheep until he finds and rescues them. There is a great celebration in Heaven every time a lost “sheep” returns to Christ.

Luke 15:1-7

15 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”

So he told them this parable: “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
