Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

lost sheep...

joy in heaven

"What man of you,
if he has a hundred sheep
and should lose one of them,
does not leave the ninety-nine
in the wilderness (desert)
and go after the one
that is lost until he finds it?
And when he has found it,
he lays it on his [own] shoulders, rejoicing.
And when he gets home,
he summons together [his] friends
and [his] neighbors, saying to them,
Rejoice with me, because
I have found my sheep which was lost.

Thus, I tell you,
there will be more joy in heaven
over one [[a]especially] wicked person
who repents ([b]changes his mind,
abhorring his errors and misdeeds,
and determines to enter upon
a better course of life)
than over ninety-nine righteous persons
who have no need of repentance."

- Luke 15:4-7 AMP
