You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

Luke 15:4 “ What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?”

1.      God’s heart aches for you. The aching Jesus has that you should not perish in the hands of devil whom you have chosen, rejecting Jesus; the aching He has, seeing the condition of your mind which is tormented by evil thoughts; the aching He has, knowing that you have lost all the peace in your heart – this aching is much more than the joy and happiness He has for the spiritual people who stand in and with Him.

How long will the shepherd look for the lost sheep? It is beautifully said in Luke 15:4. It is not just from morning to night, it is not for a day or two, and it is not for some time alone. Bible says, the shepherd will search for the sheep till he finds it.

2.      The only longing of God’s heart is that you have to repent. His hands are stretched towards you even at this moment. He longs for you to return back to Him because you belong to Him, and only to Him.

What will a shepherd do after finding the sheep? Luke 15:5 “And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.”

If you think with your logical mind, we may find so many ways to bring back the lost sheep. 1. It can be carried on the hip, 2. It can be carried in the arms, 3. It can be brought back by putting a thread on its neck and holding the thread by hand or 4. It can be brought by means of beating with a stick (It’s right to do that as the sheep went astray). But what does Jesus Christ, the good shepherd do? Luke 15:5 says that He will carry it on His shoulders.

3.      Even today God loves you so much. If you surrender yourself to Him, He will give you back all that you have lost. You will be used for His glory. Before it becomes too late, return to Jesus.
