'Joy in Finding!' - Luke 15:8-10

Articles

Beloved of All
[Jesus said,] "Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Won't she light a lamp and sweep the entire house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she will call in her friends and neighbors and say, 'Rejoice with me because I have found my lost coin.' In the same way, there is joy in the presence of God's angels when even one sinner repents."

Luke 15:8-10 NLT

Key Thought


To lose such a coin was terrible. The monetary value could have been immense. The possible sentimental value could have made the loss an even more enormous one. The value of what was lost is what called for such a desperate, thorough, and passionate search. Some have suggested that the coin was part of the woman's bridal crown or dowry, which would have made the lost coin, even more, significant to her. The value of the lost coin, coupled with the careful search, made finding the coin a cause for great celebration — and not just for this woman or her household, but for all of the woman's friends! How much more valuable are the people around us than one silver coin! So how can Christians not celebrate when salvation's light reaches the dark corners of the lost soul? We must celebrate.

Today's Prayer


Father, please let me share in the joy of your harvest. Please use me as a person of reconciliation who helps your lost children find their way home to you. Help me to be a person of great joy and encouragement to new Christians. In Jesus' name. Amen.

I am so happy I found Jesus to be the One He said He is. Redeemer, King, Lord and He is coming soon to take us all home to heaven. His word is true and we must believe it with everything we have.
