  • 2. Luke 15:4-7 ● 4 "What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!' 7 I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

  • 8. Why the party? (6) ● Joy is contagious. ● Genuine joy is shared. Start an epidemic. ● He has friends and neighbors. ● Romans 12:15 Rejoice with those that rejoice ● There is a party in heaven. (7)
  • 9. Will heaven rejoice? (7) ● Heaven rejoices when one repents – When the lost repent and are baptized – Acts 2:38 – When an erring Christian returns – Acts 8:20-24 – When one who wandered away is found. Luke 15 ● Earth also rejoices – The shepherd is glad – The lost sheep is glad – Others concerned are glad
  • 10. Will heaven rejoice? (7) ● Heaven rejoices when one repents – When the lost repent and are baptized – Acts 2:38 – When an erring Christian returns – Acts 8:20-24 – When one who wandered away is found.
