Quote By “Dr. Charles Stanley”

Jesus Christ is God’s precious and perfect gift to us. He is a heaven-sent gift, willingly given at great cost because we were in desperate need. The Father’s offer of salvation through His Son is both personal and universal. (John 3:16) Whoever receives Him discovers His unlimited worth.

 

My three points:
1. We are all sheep, lost or found – John 10:27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
If we are one of the 99, then we need to be ok with The Good Sheppard working on us..
a. Learn to listen more than you talk…fellowship in the Word and Prayer is how you Know Him and Follow Him by what His Word says or The Holy Spirit leads you
b. If you are the Lost Sheep?
i. God is anxious to see you found that He leaves the fold to recover you until found
ii. Even though the sheep wondered off, The Sheppard is not mad when He finds it, He rejoices! So to for anyone lost? I wonder if Jesus came today 2014, what would He do, where would He go and what would be my responses? Would I get offended too?
2. We are a coin A silver coin is something of great value!!
a. Lost or found, they both have the same face value
b. However, an uncared for silver coin loses its colour
c. The longer it is lost, the hard it is to see covered by the dust of the world
d. But when it is returned, a PARTY is on for ALL!! Worth Noting: Silver was largely employed for making vessels for the sanctuary of worship in OT We all have a value to be vessels for His use in His worship
3. We are a son
Weather we are the older brother or the lost son…
1. The Father waited for the lost son daily and when he was a far off, He ran to him
2. The Father pleaded with the older brother to come join Him and enjoy the celebrations.. 3. The Fathers heart is always looking to RESTORE us if we will accept it?
Gal 2:25-26 And now that the way of faith has come, we no longer need the law as our guardian (or a teacher), For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
