Topic: Hope that stands in the storm Verse: Luke 15:1–31
How big does the "yes" need to be to encounter the "no" you've heard in your life?
How far would we be willing to go?
Parable of lost sheep, lost coin, lost son.
Describe who God is and what he's like.
"This man welcomes sinners and eats with them."
Jesus accepts these people treating them as equals or friends. Doing this before they have their "act" together.
Question: Why don't I? Do I persue those who are lost?
People don't get grace because they don't know they need it. (Refering to Pharisees and religious leaders).
Sheep - they get distracted
Coin - fall through the crack
Where are you in the parable?
Where is God asking you to sweep? Where and who?
