He Leaves the Ninety-Nine

DAILY VERSE

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?

Luke 15:4

DEVOTION

No matter how bad any of us messes life up, God continuously seeks us out. I know this first hand. I strayed away from the fold when I was younger. It was God, wandering away from the flock, that pulled me back in and allowed me to rededicate my life to Him. We sing “Reckless Love” in worship often. I’m grateful God left the 99 to retrieve this lost lamb.

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it
I don’t deserve it
Still, You give yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

– Bethel Music
