“Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish” (Matthew 18:14)

May 7, 2021

Lord and Savior Jesus Christ thought as that God watches over each of His children. The letter to the Hebrews notified us about angels who are ‘sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation.’

Each of believers has their own individual angel looking out for them whom are ordered by God. But these words articulate about God’s close and careful concern for His people, as illustrated by Lord Jesus parable of the lost sheep. “For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost; what do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying? And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray. Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.” (Matthew 18:11-14)

Lord Jesus is sincerely asking ‘what do you think?’ I imagine that some shepherds, protecting a flock of 100 on a mountain might say: ‘It’s just one sheep. I have 99 more safe rights here, I can’t leave the 99 alone in danger to go find that stray sheep? That wouldn’t be very smart. I can keep these 99 safe, or I can go look for one lost one. That’s not a very efficient use of time. It’s not a very strategic way to watch sheep.’

Our Lord Jesus Christ came to earth, bore from Saint Mary to in cleansing our sin and keep the lost destruction of the loss of disastrousness, for we shall heir of eternal life. Our God does not allow anyone to be lost unless and otherwise we are lost in our free will. Even if we fail to return to Him, He never abandons His children and seize at looking over us. God is a good shepherd, but not like evil keepers; because, the evil shepherd sleeps without safeguarding his sheep’s and neglect and mistreatment them.

God deploys us in a lust field that is His pure words; The LORD the Shepherd of His People “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will hear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever; God will always be our shepherd if we will it. (Psalm 23:1-6)

Shepherds these days breed sheep for their own sake rather than for good cause. Even they provide green grass and pure waters; it is not for the sake of the sheep but to ether sell and profit or else for Holiday consumption.

But when God preserves us it is His sake but for us; we might not understand this truth. Our mind and heart in razed in worldly exploitations. We forget what God’s safeguard and everything he has done for us. Because our God does not want God, Jehovah has provided life and salvation. He is willing to stretch his merciful hands. Because our God does not neither want or will our…, He scarified for our eternal life and salvation. He wills to widen his merciful hands.”All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and ethe one who comes to Me I will 6by no means cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:37-40)

We shall live a Holy life and be blessed but cursed in the temple, as it is sacred place. We ought to seek our sheered as God is still looking for today; Let us use His present ‘time’ for repentance and eat and drink the flesh and blood of Lord and Jesus Christ.
May God support us in using our valuable age, cure us and keep our Country safe; Amen!
