This blog is called the The Daily Bleat because the Bible speaks of God’s people as sheep being shepherded by the great shepherd the Lord Jesus Christ. Sheep bleat and I blog.
I recently came across an amazing photo of a lamb being rescued from the cold choppy waters of a seashore and was ministered to by our Lord’s words in Luke 15.
1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him.2 And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”
3 So he told them this parable:4 ”What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.6 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.’7 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 15:1-7 (ESV)
