One sheep

    Luke 15:4-7 says, “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? [5] “And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. [6] “And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ [7] “I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

    What is the value of one soul? What would Jesus be willing to do to save one soul? Every single soul is of value to God. There is rejoicing in heaven for every single soul who repents by turning away from their sin and turning to God. Jesus has done everything necessary to save us. The decision is now left on us. Are we willing to repent?
