I have been serving for nine years with the Christian community I am now in. There are highs and lows in service but God never failed to give me His inspiring messages. Today's Gospel is one of them. "Jesus said to his disciples: “What is your opinion? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the stray? And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father that one of these little ones be lost.”(Matthew 18:12-14).
I am greatly honored to be re-affirmed today that God indeed is rejoicing in finding me again among His flock. I may not be perfect in my dealings as a Christian but I am happy I am given the chance to be back and work in His vineyard.
In addition God send me these verses as a special message: "Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of His visitation" (I Peter 2:11-12)
Friend if you haven't got a deeper relationship with God, come join me, I assure you.. its more rewarding, its more fulfilling.
