The Parable of the Lost Coin

“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Won’t she light a lamp and sweep the entire house and search carefully until she finds it?
And when she finds it, she will call in her friends and neighbors and say, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost coin.’
In the same way, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels when even one sinner repents.”

—Luke 15:8-10, NLT

Our sins separated us from God (Isaiah 59:2). But God search for us just like the woman in the parable above. God will do everything for us to be found. So, He send His Son, Jesus Christ, to save us and bring us back to Him.

Repentance is turning away from sin. It starts with acknowledging and confessing your sins, believing and committing your life in Christ, and living a blameless or righteous life. When the goodness of God made known to us, it leads us to repentance (Romans 2:4). The day we repent is the day God found us and we found Him. It’s also the day where the heavens are all rejoicing because of our repentance. Every sinner who repents are worthy to be rejoice in heaven.

Praise be to God!

God bless us all!
