ARE YOU SAFE IN GOD’S SHEEPFOLD, OR HAVE YOU GONE ASTRAY AND ARE LOST?
Isaiah 53:6 says ‘All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.’
Luke 19:10 tells us ‘For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.’
The ‘Son of man’ is JESUS who said ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’ John 14:6
HOW MUCH DOES GOD LOVE THOSE WHO HAVE GONE ASTRAY?
For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
How think ye? If a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray.
Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.’ Mt 18:11-14
GOD CARES FOR YOU AND WANTS TO SAVE YOU!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John3:16
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1Peter 5:7
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the inquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:6)
My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting place. (Jeremiah 50:6)
How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. (Mt 18:12-14)
