We are having an auction in November to sell my father-in-law's classic cars. This month we are auctioning off his old pickup trucks. I've been helping Richard's sister to try and locate the titles. We found car titles in his office and his house; I even saw one on the floor in his garage! He also had an office in his garage, and that's where we found most of them. I'm not sure if we have everything we need yet; if not, we will continue the search. It's challenging. However, everyone is working together in harmony to make it happen seamlessly. As Christ-followers, God has left us here to complete a similar task. The world is a messy place, and lives are scattered everywhere. Everyone is destined for heaven; Jesus made sure of that by paying the price for all, but some of their titles are missing. If we don't find them and their bill of sale, many will be left behind and face destruction. Listen carefully to God's voice; when he encourages you to share his love by telling others about Jesus, make sure you follow his instructions. The lost people of this world depend on us to help them receive their titles, with Jesus labeled as their owner.
And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. Luke 15:6-7
