Has God ever reached out to one of his lost sheep through you?
If you do not believe read please first.
Luke 15:3-7 (King James Version)
3And he spake this parable unto them, saying,
4What 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?
5And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
6And 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.
7I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

James 5:19,20 - Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and cover a multitude of sins. ~ Note: If the backslider does not get corrected, his soul will perish with spiritual death. That is not everlasting life. The word wanders also means to sever or fall away from the truth, to be led astray into error and sin. The word from also means of departing, of fleeing, of any kind of separation of one thing from another by which the union or fellowship of the two is destroyed. Clearly, this is about brethren who are no longer saved. The word turns also means to cause to return, to bring back to the love and obedience of God. That's part of what I'm trying to do with this web page. The word save also means to preserve one who is in danger of destruction. The word death also means with the implied idea of future misery in hell, the misery of the soul arising from sin, which begins on earth but lasts and increases after the death of the body in hell.

God says there is not any worry in suited love. the phobia that the Bible tells us to have is a godly worry or a reverence for Him. God does not want us to be frightened of Him, He needs us to settle for His present of salvation so as that we come into His Presence with boldness. We admire Him because of the fact he's well worth it. God says we are able to instruct our love for Him by using loving Him and loving one yet another with an undeserved love. God supplies us undeserved mercy, grace, reward, forgiveness. etc. God in simple terms needs us to be prepared to do the comparable for others. in spite of each and everything, we too, like our fellow brothers and sisters are imperfect and not sinless. God needs the gospel to be unfold. He supplies His people the great fee to proportion the information approximately salvation and God's love. we are called the physique of Christ. He has a reliable aim in the back of this. God's plans are continually reliable and convey the terrific outcomes. the religion that God needs us to have is in His real nature - that's often goodness. He could be no longer something different. he's often love, continually reality, continually desire, continually merciful, continually committed....etc. those are the culmination of the Holy Spirit. If we could desire to attain those reliable issues - we could desire to be linked to the source of Goodness. he's the Vine and we are the branches. he's the source of existence, if we are separated from Him, we are on an computerized course in the direction of dying. He has executed each and every of the paintings and made the thank you to salvation common. He says we could desire to have faith in Him "positioned our believe in" Him. Confess with your mouth that Jesus is God, tell Him you settle for His present of salvation, and ask for Him to grant you His Holy Spirit. once you bought the Holy Spirit you may commune with God. He needs to have a private dating with each and every people. He is common with each and everything that's on our hearts and minds, yet He needs us to pour out our hearts to Him and solid all of our cares at His ft.
