Lost and Found

About a year and a half after I lost my wedding band, a man with a metal detector found it under several inches of dirt. I was glad!

Some losses hardly merit a shrug: a comb, a ballpoint pen, a sock. But then there are losses beyond calculation.

Ultimate Joy

Because He yearned for reconciliation, the Father sent His Son on a search-and-rescue mission (Luke 19:10). To accomplish this, Jesus paid with His blood. With it He purchased the church (Acts 20:28; Ephesians 5:1-2, 25).

What can compare with heaven’s joy when one who was lost is found? (Luke 15)
