The parables of the lost sheep and lost coin (Lk. 15: 1-10) highlight just how easy each of us can ‘get lost’ when we give in to sin. However, even more importantly, these parables reveal how much more our Lord exceedingly rejoices when we repent and are ‘found’.
God delights in “eating with sinners” (Lk. 15:2). His welcoming attitude and loving arms are meant to spur us to reflection, conversion and reconciliation. We all have a ‘head start’ in the journey of salvation because God is on our side. Repent and rejoice in the Lord.
Save us Saviour of the world, for by Your cross and resurrection, You have set us free. May we celebrate Your love and mercy in our lives by our conversion and true worship. Amen.
