Luke 15:8-10 A Mother's Loving Tenacity

We end up in dark, dirty, shameful places when we choose sin over Jesus. In this parable of the coin, Jesus reassures sinners that:

  1. It's Where We Are, But It's no Who We Are
  2. God Won't Back Off Until We're Back

“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (Luke 15:8–10, NIV)
