DAY 15 THE ONE IS PRECIOUS
IN HIS SIGHT
What man among you, who has a hundred sheep and loses one of them, does not leave the ninetynine in the open field and go after the lost one until he finds it? When he has found it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders, and coming home, he calls his friends and neighbors together, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, because I have found my lost sheep!’ I tell you, in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who don’t need repentance. LUKE 15:4 - 7
Bigger is better, and more is greater. That’s what we’re led to believe. We celebrate large numbers and record-breaking moments (as we should). Of course, we want to see people come to Christ in large numbers. We want to see more and more people experience the joy which comes from an intimate relationship with Jesus. The world has seen its share of revivals, and we celebrate and praise God for these moments. In the midst of the multitudes repenting and coming to faith in Christ, don’t neglect the joy of the one sinner who repents. The one— your ONE— is precious in His sight. God rejoices over the one sinner who repents.
As we pray for the masses today, pray for your ONE, too. Pray that God would give you 1 opportunity to invite someone to church today
