Inspired by Luke Fifteen

Inspired by Luke Fifteen

By David Smith May 22, 2008

 

Luke Fifteen in the Bible we turn

Parables of the Lost we continue to learn

The Lost Sheep, Lost coin and lost son we hear

Ever ending joy to be found so near

Joy after repentance and a new life to receive

Pictures a new birth, in Christ to believe

And seeing the self-righteous so arrogant and sure

The scribes and the Pharisees so puffed they endure

They don’t have the intimacy

They were never lost to be found

They never went astray

Their self-will kept them sound

The agony to be lost and the joy to be saved

The parables of the lost

We can rejoice past the grave

O what joy in the Church we can see

Reading the Chapter what Luke fifteen is telling me
