16LHDVD10-1 - Nickie Pinson - LOST SHEEP - Donation $6.00 - Luke 15:1 tells how the undesirables of society drew near to Jesus. The words He spoke were spirit and life and He spoke with power. For example, He commanded the unclean spirits and they came out. Jesus came for the lost, the wayward, the unwanted, and the outcasts. It is the sick who need a physician. If you are a lost sheep, the Lord is looking for you. Jesus, your Good Shepherd, wants to meet your needs, look after you and keep you secure. The Lord rejoices when He finds His lost sheep and He wants others to rejoice with Him. Jesus has such compassion and great love for that lost sheep of His. Jesus never said how or why His sheep got lost, He just went hunting for them. Let us look for those who stray, without judging them. Repentance brings joy to Heaven more than many who need no repentance. May God give us compassion and love for men who once lived for God but somehow failed Him. We must determine if the church is to be a hospital or a social club for the self-righteous. Personal ministry follows this teaching.
