Today’s Sermon:



The Joy of Being Found

Luke 15:1-7

By:  Dr. Bill Henard



One of the great joys in life is being found. It is no fun being lost. Jesus came into this world to find you.

Here’s how we know that fact.


I.             Jesus Cares About Us.

15:1 This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.


II.           Sometimes We Get Lost and Don’t

Know What To Do

15:4 go after the lost one until he finds it


III.          Heaven Rejoices When Jesus Brings Us Home.

15:7 there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents


Takeaway: What is it in your life that has caused you to run from God?

Jesus has come to find you because He cares about you.
