People matter to God and people should matter to me!
“4 “If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he will joyfully carry it home on his shoulders. 6 When he arrives, he will call together his friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!” Luke 15:4-7
It is amazing to me that the God who created the universe cares about me. He should be busy making sure the stars do what they are supposed to do and keep the whole thing spinning. Surely the God of the universe does not have time to listen to me and my insignificant concerns. Have you ever had these ideas? In the passage above we get a little glimpse into the heart of God. He is concerned for every person. Every person matters to God.
If today you find yourself far from God know that He loves you and wants a relationship with you. No matter what you have done or said in your past God wants you. You can never wander to far from Him that He would not leave the ninety-nine to find you. You matter to God! Turn to Him today!
