In just the same way, I tell you, there will be rejoicing among the angels of God over one sinner who repents.
Have you ever lost something and couldn't locate it for the longest time? Or lost something so valuable you became sick? We probably all have at one time or another. Your heart starts beating faster, you start sweating, your stomach begins to churn and you might even cry. It's hard to control those emotions when it's something really valuable you've lost. Then, when you finally find it, you suddenly change and say, "Thank God!" These are all lost objects, the same as what Jesus was preaching on in his example in Luke. Jesus was being questioned about dining with sinners. Instead of answering the question directly, he shared two parables: one about a lost sheep and one about a lost coin. Both have monetary value that those with whom he's dining might understand. Then he equates these to lost souls.
As a parent, you put great value on the upbringing of your children, especially when it comes to their education and their faith. After they become adults, the world can pull them in different directions and they can become lost. Parents pray for their kids to come home, to return to the faith. Maybe some have damaged relationships, like the story of the prodigal son. There is always great rejoicing when the wayward return home. Jesus tasks us with finding the lost sheep and to look for the lost coin. Each one of us has a responsibility to do this, and when we succeed, we should celebrate as the angels do. God will reward those faithful who bring the lost home. That's what Spirit FM is called to do. You help make that possible.
