As a parent did your child ever wander away and get lost? You found him/her.
“Suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (Luke 15:8-10)
We all sin and lose our way, but God always finds us. It might take some effort because we don’t always want to be found. However, God, through the Holy Spirit, keeps after us until we are back where we belong. Then God celebrates. We are also happy that we are no longer lost and we’re back in His arms.
Have you lost your way? Is God calling for you to return to Him? God will find you and welcome you home no matter what you’ve done. It’s a wonderful feeling not to be lost anymore.l
