Will We Rejoice When the Lost Are Found?

Luke records one parable divided into three stories in chapter 15 of his gospel. All three stories describe the rejoicing over one that has been lost, but now is found. Jesus spoke this parable to the Pharisees and scribes because they refused to celebrate the tax collectors and “sinners” that were coming to Jesus. Instead they criticized, accused, judged, and made themselves to be superior. The elder brother in the story of the prodigal was like these religious leaders, or church folks.

If there is even a hint that a Katy Perry, or a Bobbi Kristina, or any other celebrity may be moving to a place of being “found,” we should be rejoicing, and continuing to pray for their full restoration.

I rejoice over what is made possible by the grace teaching of Joel Osteen and Joseph Prince. And, I am also rejoicing over the lost – any lost – being found. I have to admit that I didn’t always do that. But, I see it now. We tend to rejoice when someone receives a prophetic word. Could we begin to fulfill the Word, and rejoice with heaven when one who has been lost is found?

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
