Week 34

Precious in his Sight

Heaven Rejoices for one sinner who repents than for

ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

- Luke 15 : 7

There came a time when Jesus was with a gathering of tax collectors and “sinners” all around to hear him. They were all eager to know what the Lord has to say. The Lord’s presence was overwhelming and they were all astound for in those days, Jesus’ came to be all well-known over the land. However, some were looking closely at the Lord in a not so profound way. The Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eat with them.”

Then, the Lord told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?...

The Lord is not willing that anyone should perish but for one to turn from his sins and live (2 Peter 3:90. Every soul is precious to him. He knows us each by name and he gave us each with his or her own uniqueness. In short, there is no other you in the world. He made you unlike any other and you have your own characteristics that you alone possess. We are his creations and it tells by the book of Genesis that we are made in his own likeness.

When one of his gets lost, a good shepherd looks for that one sheep that has wandered away from the flock. He searches in the places that it might be looking closely to every spot. He values everyone of his own and the number of the sheep he have though it may be many does not gets him out of sight of his task. He does not makes it an excuse that just because he has more than enough flocks, he will not look for that sheep anymore. He makes it not a reason to ‘call it a day’ though his flock is not like it used to that it is apparently now one less. Instead, he gets his walking stick and hopes to bring back that sheep home.

”And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it in his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who needs no repentance.”

The lost sheep that was lost alone would be all aware of the predicament he have been in. The state by which he have to endure is not a pleasing sight to look at. The night has within it some unpleasant things that isn’t good to encounter. He doesn’t know what terror could lie out there and though white as he is, it would probably not bring apparent light where he maybe. He has to rely on the place he is hiding now for cover against such unwanted companies. He felt scared and comfort isn’t on his side by the moment. He does not feel safe and no warm feeling is given by the cold breeze of the night.

But when the shepherd has finally found the lost sheep he has been looking for, he eagerly come to aid it in his struggle. He looks for any wounds that he may be able to bring healing to it afterwards. With tenderness, he puts the sheep into his shoulders and goes home. He has found what he has been looking for and happiness is defined in this time.

Somehow, people who are lost and doesn’t have the Lord in them has that lost sheep inside of them. Sin entices one to go in a way that isn’t what the Lord has in plan. But still, the shepherd looks for them. He loves them dearly that he longs to have that sheep back into his arms once again. In the state they are in, they need a lending hand and definitely one that would make them see the goodness that is in Jesus. He is able to bring them into the light where his goodness abides as they have faith in him. As he said it in John 10:14, “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me…”

When Jesus was to return to heaven, he gave us The Great Commission. Sometimes in our lives, we forgot to act upon the great commission that the Lord gave us. There came times when we don’t fully take to account the words that he meant by this. Life often get us down that we lose sight of this task that he gave us. It is in our duty that we should spread his words to those who haven’t fully acknowledge his goodness into their lives as well as for those who haven’t yet accepted him as their personal Lord and saviour. It is his delight for us to bring the goodness of his word to those who must hear it and surely he will be with us all the way through. To see one of his own from the dark into the path where he has inclined him to be is a joy that the Lord as well as the dominions of heaven rejoices for and definitely, you are precious in his sight. He eventually ascended and disappeared into the clouds right after.

Matthew 28:18-20, Then Jesus said,

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me, Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
