Luke 15:4-6 – 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? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
Today there are many converts, but not many disciples. One reason is that man has lost the art of training or helping people to the enemies tactics of thinking “first” of “self”, instead of his fellow man.
In this scripture we see Jesus, the good Shepherd, go to the one that is lost and saves it, but after he saves it, he doesn’t walk away to leave it to learn on its on, He walks it back by carrying it on His shoulders to the sheepfold.
He takes full responsibility in getting that one sheep back.
This is the way Jesus is walking with us now. He has saved most of us that are reading this note, but He has been saving us by walking with us back to where we truly belong. We have learned and transformed more through His relationship than the knowledge that He has spoken.
Relationship is a key to truly training and transforming God’s people.
Walk “with” the ones that God puts in your life, you then will forever transform them into the person of God they are to be. All of heaven will rejoice with you as you walk them home.
