“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Eph 2:4-6).
Do you still remember the commonly told Parable of the Lost Sheep? Isn’t that an uplifting Bible story? Let’s say you were the lost sheep. You wander alone in the dark and wilderness feeling cold and frightened. What else can be more touching than knowing that your dear father has left all your siblings at home to look for you? And the moment he found you, he became the happiest person in the world. And you, being rescued from the edge of nothingness, would soon realize how lucky you are to have the chance to experience the fullness of life.
The burning hope that the story brings us is so strong that it moves us each time we listen to it. It somehow reminds us to let our life’s story reflect the Parable of the Lost Sheep. In addition to the story, here’s another source of inspiration to keep us spiritually uplifted. It’s a beautiful song about being lost and found at last by no other than the Savior. Let’s listen to it wholeheartedly. Believe me dear readers, there’s a feeling of being so much blessed found in this song. Moreover, it will leave you being grateful and say, “Indeed, He came looking for me.”
