Title: “The One”
Deuteronomy 30:19 “This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life…”
Jesus told a set of stories in Luke 15 about the power of “one”:
- Lost sheep 3-7
- Lost coin 8-10
- Lost son 11-32
Luke 15:3-7 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 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 do not need to repent.
Three observations from Luke 15…
- All are equally loved but the lost are the priority.
- You are never lost in the audience of humanity.
- God reserves Heaven’s loudest noise for when one person receives Jesus.
