路加福音 15:8-10 或是一个妇人，有十块钱，若失落一块，岂不点上灯，打扫屋子，细细的找，直到找着吗？找着了，就请朋友邻舍来，对他们说，我失落的那块钱已经找着了，你们和我一同欢喜吧。我告诉你们，一个罪人悔改，在 神的使者面前，也是这样为他欢喜。

That feeling of complete inadequacy before God is one that many, many people have experienced, me included. How about you? You know you’re not worthy. You know you’ll never be good enough.
Jesus knew that, so He told several parables to set our minds, our hearts, at rest. Here’s one of them:
Luke 15:8-10 “Suppose a woman has ten silver coins, but she loses one of them. She will take a light and clean the house. She will look carefully for the coin until she finds it. And when she finds it, she will call her friends and neighbours and say to them, ‘Be happy with me because I have found the coin that I lost!’ In the same way, it’s a happy time for the angels of God when one sinner decides to change.”
Jesus always – always! – goes after the one. The one lost sheep. The one lost coin. The one lost child. The lost you. The lost me. The one! And not necessarily the “best” one. I stumbled across these words recently that hammered that powerful truth home to me:
God found Gideon in a hole. He found Joseph in a prison. He found Daniel in a lion’s den. He has a curious habit of showing up in the midst of trouble, not the absence of it. Where the world sees failure, God sees future. Next time you feel unqualified to be used by God remember this, He tends to recruit from the pit, not the pedestal.
It doesn’t matter where you’re at, how badly you may have failed, how insignificant you may feel … when God finds you and draws you close to Himself – listen to me – there is always joy in His heart
That’s His Word. Fresh … for you … today.
