I posted this on another site and got an interesting reply. Someone noted that Jesus must be really silly and uncaring to leave 99 to go and find the one sheep that had wandered away. That reply takes me back to a famous quote in Star Trek….” Sometimes the good of the One outweighs the good of the many.”
So, suppose you are that ONE who needs saving, and Jesus just said, ‘sorry, too busy, can’t do it…save yourself.’ I think many might say, oh no! And in my belief system, you would be right.
Every. Single. Day. There is ONE that needs protecting, saving, rescuing. And every day, Jesus and our Great Creator sees fit to do just that. Does it happen to everyone? No. And we do not know WHY. Our Great God only knows His plan, His actions, His reasons. But….on the chance that YOU are the One that needs saving, aren’t you worth trusting in a God who loves you? Aren’t YOU worth it for Jesus to see that He can raise you up, just as He was raised on this Blessed Easter?
Please take some time to reach out, if you are in hardship, talk to Him, pray reverently, and you CAN be the one He comes to rescue. And, pray for those who need Him to rescue, to find enduring Love and Peace.
Bless you all the Blessed Season of renewal. 🙏
