In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!
We all have someone in our lives whom we have written off. That one person we have convinced ourselves is beyond help, or even that person we claim cannot be saved. First and foremost who are we to decide who can and cannot be saved. Salvation is of God and He is the one who calls us into salvation. The heavens awaits and rejoice over the soul of one. Anytime one lost soul is found the heavens erupt in joy. This include the souls you have given up on, the ones who written off and the ones you feel are not deserving of Gods grace.
We must begin to look at lost souls as God looks at them. He does not desire for anyone to die in their sins, and we must desire the same. We must desire to see those that are lost come to God. Let us leave our judgmental thoughts and ideas aside. We do not decide who gets saved and who doesn’t. As God had mercy on us and brought us to light, let us also seek to direct others to God so that they also may see the light. His heart goes out for that one that everyone thinks is useless and cannot be saved. Show love and grace and draw unto the hearts of the lost that they too may come to know Christ. So that as heaven rejoiced over your salvation, it may rejoice over their salvation also.
