Story of the Lost Sheep

Scripture Passage: Luke 15:1-7

According to the Pharisees and teachers of the law, when Jesus ate with the tax collectors, He was committing a serious religious offence. This was because eating with someone meant you also accepted them. These religious leaders missed the whole point of Jesus' ministry. This ministry was about love. He did more than just talk and preach to them, he also ate with them. It is therefore because of this kind of love that Jesus came to save all who come to Him. Do we love, serve and accept others in the same way He did?

1. Why were the Pharisees and teachers of the law grumbling?
Because Jesus welcomed and ate with sinners.
2. What does Jesus say a man does when he loses one sheep?
He goes out to find it.
3. What happens in Heaven when one sinner repents?
There is rejoicing in Heaven.

Memory verse: Galatians 5:14
"Love your neighbor as yourself." (NLT)
