Luke 15:8-10

Spend time in prayer and silence with God asking Him to meet with you and speak to you.

Bible Reading

“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light up a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

– Luke 15:8-10


Like The Parable of the Lost Sheep, we find a common theme in this parable of something being “lost” and then being found. Once again Jesus is communicating His eternal purpose for coming into our world. Pastor Bob has often said, “The Bible is a love story. God lost something, and He wants it back.” The story of the Bible communicates the lengths God would go to get “lost” humanity back!
