“God is still pursuing lost sheep. And now, he’s doing it through us.”

February 25, 2018

When we look through the storyline of the Bible, we find God always pursuing humans who have run from him. From the calling of Abraham, through the kingdom of Israel, and into the life of Jesus, we see a God who chases those who don’t deserve to be chased. Jesus describes himself as a shepherd who came to seek lost sheep. And after the death and resurrection of Jesus, God continues his pursuit of lost sheep through us, his church.
