Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep!
Jesus told stories called parables to explain things. In this story, He explains that when we say sorry to God for the wrong things we’ve done and follow Him, he rejoices! It’s a bit like we’re the lost sheep and God is the shepherd who finds us!

Luke 15 v 4-7
“Suppose one of you had a hundred sheep and lost one. Wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the lost one until you found it? When found, you can be sure you would put it across your shoulders, rejoicing, and when you got home call in your friends and neighbours, saying, ‘Celebrate with me! I’ve found my lost sheep!’ Count on it—there’s more joy in heaven over one sinner’s rescued life than over ninety-nine good people in no need of rescue."
