“Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.” Luke 15:7 (ESV)
Heaven is more celebratory over one new believer than over ninety-nine sitting in the pews. We tend to think differently because we equate success with larger crowds, bigger buildings, and chasing programs that promise to reach more than we have now. However, Jesus would have come to earth for the salvation of one soul.
Let’s pray today to give attention to one that is lost, more than the those who are with us.
