And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.
-This was the parable of the lost sheep, which explained the importance of repentance.
-In Psa 119:176, I have gone astray like a lost sheep; Seek Your servant, For I do not forget Your commandments.
Christ my Father, thank You for reminding me that I am valuable in Your kingdom. I have gone astray like lost sheep, please forgive me. May Your commandments & need for repentance always dwell with me so that there is much rejoicing in heaven. Amen
