The Ninety and Nine

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 15:7 NLT)

And those ninety and nine will be rejoicing over the newly-returned one with all they've got. That's why there will be more rejoicing. ;o)

Lord, lead me to those whose hearts I can begin to help turn back towards You. Tell me whom I should pray for. And give me the words I should pray. Show me what to do, what to say, how to live, what to believe. In Jesus' name, so be it!

I welcome questions and concerns--they are most often what spur us closer to the truth. I only ask that we all give everyone the most generous benefit of the doubt, assigning the best motives possible. A soft answer truly does turn away wrath, and an atmosphere of Jesus's love is the best for learning, no matter which side of a discussion you're on.

Thanks so much, and God bless you!
