In the movie Avengers, Natasha Romanoff says, “I don’t see how that’s a party.” I think she’s right but for different reasons. The Bible in Luke 15:7 says this:
“Suppose one of you had a hundred sheep and lost one. Wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the lost one until you found it? When found, you can be sure you would put it across your shoulders, rejoicing, and when you got home call in your friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Celebrate with me! I’ve found my lost sheep!’ Count on it—there’s more joy in heaven over one sinner’s rescued life than over ninety-nine good people in no need of rescue.
Luke 15:7 The Message (MSG)
Now that’s a party I would love to attend. Who can you invite to the party today?
make your presence
known in this place,
through our worship,
the reading of your Word,
and in the fellowship we shall enjoy. Amen
