Re:Verse passage – Matthew 18:5-14 (day three)

Does he not leave the ninety-nine?”

God’s been seeking people the whole Bible long. From “Where is your brother Abel?” to “The eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth” to “The Son of man came to seek and to save the lost,” God has called, searched for, pursued, wooed. This is what the universe’s Creator does. Scripture shows us a God cut to the heart for those who have gone missing. The word of God which declares that the Lord is among the gathering of even two or three is the same word of God that admonishes us against contentedness to remain just two or three. See people, notice them, hear them, welcome them, sit with them. The Savior will reveal himself in these moments of tender conversation to those who’ve lost their way. Some of them will come home.
