We are a people whom seem to be infatuated with numbers. We are very concerned with the number of likes a post gets, the number on the scale, and the number of our bank account. We like high numbers on our paychecks. We like low numbers on the scale. We would like to have more than one car. The number of degrees matter. The number of vacations we take. If we take inventory, there is definitely a number that is sure to get our attention.
For Jesus, He found Himself concerned with the one. “Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.” Luke 15:7
We were once, the one. We were the lost sheep that needed to be found. Rejoice even now that Jesus wasn’t concerned with maintaining the 99. He wasn’t concerned about higher numbers. He was willing to sacrifice it all for the one. He tenderly cares for the one. He is ALWAYS concerned about the one!
Be concerned about the one. Be concerned about that one family member, that one co-worker, that one post that’s a cry for help. The one needs your service. The one needs your testimony. The one needs your prayers.
And that one could change the world.
The One did change the world….
Peace and Blessings
