God’s Joy for Finding the Lost

September 12, 2016

Sermon on Luke 15:1-10, for the 17th Sunday after Pentecost, about the parables of the lost sheep and the lost coin. How do these parables (and also the third in the set--the Lost or Prodigal Son), communicate to us our own lost condition and the love of God the Father and Jesus Christ for the lost? What does it mean to be lost? How does it affect us? How does Jesus want to shape our hearts? How do we share in the joy and celebration of heaven?
