-Or what woman, having ten [silver] drachmas [each one equal to a day’s wages], if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and look carefully and diligently until she finds it-
Jesus was an Awesome Story Teller….
In Luke 15:8-10, He Tells a Parable about a woman who had lost a coin…Well this woman had obviously misplaced one of her silver coins and had begun to despair over it. Now when she realized that one of the coins was missing, it must have been in the evening time, because scripture tells us that she needed light…so she lit a lantern.
You see…this woman couldn’t rest because she needed to locate the thing that she had lost…and she needed the light to help her navigate her way through the maze of furniture, in the darkness.
So She began to clean her house…Can you picture her sweeping the dirt floor, bending down to look underneath the furniture and peering behind the doors, emptying baskets, and wiping the dust from the tables. We don’t know how long the woman searched…but it is quite possible that she was up all night…she was steadfast and determined to spot out her lost coin of silver…when suddenly, her eyes finally noticed the sparkle of the coin, reflected by the light. She had found it!!…and what did she do??
She ran to her neighbors houses, awaking them…to share the Good News, so that they might come to celebrate this joyous occasion!!
-And when she has found it, she summons her [women] friends and neighbors, saying, Rejoice with me, for I have found the silver coin which I had lost-
The thing that was lost..was now found!!
So what’s so significant about this story??
Well Jesus has been looking for You…He has been shining His Light of Salvation out for You!!
Let Him Find You!!
And Let His Love come upon you…
because No matter what you’ve done in the past…
…and no matter how long you’ve been running from Him…
Jesus Still Wants You!!
