What is a "Lost Sheep" ...
A lost sheep is a lost soul.
Someone who lives in such darkness that they cannot find their way out.
God calls other souls as to reach out for these lost sheep.
But, how does one go about accomplishing such a task?
I mean ... Who are WE to try and reach Lost sheep?
WHAT ARE THE LOST SHEEP IN THE BIBLE Now, before you allow the enemy of our souls (Satan) to talk you into believing that YOU could in no way be special or worthy and the thought of lil ole YOU being called by GOD may seem a lil far fetched ...
PONDER ON THIS TRUTH
That is EXACTLY who God has called according to His Word.
1 Corinthians 1:26-28
God uses the rejects of the world if ya will. Those who feel they are worthless. Those who are found to be UNWORTHY by the World. So this means you may be a loner or even be known by others and even yourself as weird or strange ...
God has called the PECULIAR souls to serve Him.
1 Peter 2:9
In TRUTH ... God uses souls who do not even know they are being used.
For example ...
Note that this soul did NO wrong to be blinded. This man was blinded from birth for the SOLE purpose of being used THAT day as a tool for God to bring many souls to Salvation thru Jesus.
THE LOST SHEEP IN THE BIBLE SECRET We too are used as GOD sees fit to bring forth HIS purpose.
Oft times by our past experiences whether they be good ... Or bad.
I mean think about it ...
What experiences that you deem negative or positive from your past are you now able to use to reach and teach others?
What have you experienced and endured that you are or could be using to bring those lost sheep that dwell in darkness, to the light of TRUTH?
Who better to send down a dark alley to rescue His children who are lost within the darkness ... Than someone who has been in the same darkness before and has overcome thru HIM.Sound weird?
THE LOST SHEEP IN THE BIBLE STORY There was a Father who had a child that He loved so very much. They would hang out and talk all the time. The child was everything to the Father. Every night, they would say prayers together. Then one day, they went to the park and the child wandered away from the Father and was kidnapped by a foul spirited soul. The Father was devastated. He hired private Investigators to seek the child, but to no avail.
One day, the Father saw the child, who was now an adult and called out to the child. But, the child COULD NOT HEAR. They had become part of the world of those who kidnapped them. They were doing everything the whispers of the kidnappers CON-vinced them to do, but also remembered deep within the whispers of their loving Father from youth echoing in their heart. Somehow they blended the messages of these two completely different voices and used them to benefit their own life as they were merely a child who had been CON-vinced to follow another path and were lost in a whirlwind.
The Father, realizing that the child would not or better said COULD NOT choose to return to Him, chose to hire another lost soul within the same dark world that His child was within to bring forth His child out of the darkness and return the child to HIM. He knew that this hired man knew the lifestyle well and was the best candidate to reach His child. The Father promised the hired man that if he would bring the child out, that he would be rewarded well. The hired man agreed and befriended the child and established a friendship based on common bonds as they were kindred spirits due to living in the same darkness many years.
As time passed ... The hired man began to slowly lead the child out of the darkness and towards the Father's House. The child began to remember the FIRST LOVE between they and their Father. ONE DAY ... The child stood before the Father's House and the Father came running out and RAN TO the child and hugged and kissed them with tears streaming in His eyes.
The Father then looked over at the hired man who was tattered and torn, both within and without, from a life of misery and said with a smile upon His lips and within His heart ... Thank you. You are forgiven for your life of sin.
