Jesus came because God loves the people in the world and wants all to be saved and none to be lost.  God has known each of us since we were conceived  and longs to have each of us — regardless of race, gender, or social status  — re-born into His family by the Holy Spirit. 
To emotionally emphasize these longings in Jesus' heart, Jesus told three parables about the joy of God in finding those who are lost — the lost sheep, lost coin, and lost son.  Our relationship verse today calls us to partner with God in two ways.>
Today's verses should speak to all of us. If you are away from God, come home. There's a party waiting. If we know lost, lonely, discouraged, and alienated people, we must go and offer God's invitation for them to come home to a party in their honor. God loves to see people saved, his children close to Him, and parties to celebrate salvation, grace, and spiritual family. Isn't it time you accepted the invitation to the party in your honor with God?
Father in heaven, thank You for Your overwhelming love for me. Thank You for saving me and bringing me into your forever family of grace. Use me, Father, to reach others who need to experience Your love, mercy, grace, and power. Help me know how best to invite them to know You, experience Your love, and invite them to the party you long to throw for them. In Jesus' name, I ask for this grace. Amen.
