God’s Most Wanted

Leave a comment

Saturday was Vacation Bible School at my in-law’s church and the kids had a great time.

There were wanted posters, wagon wheels, a campfire and tent.

The boys, of course, decided to be outlaws when they first got their cowboy hats and bandanas. It’s what boys do…

They sang songs around the “campfire”, listened to Bible stories, made all sorts of crafts, and ate their weight in hamburgers and hotdogs.

Sarah was the lone cowgirl amongst all the cowboys, but it didn’t phase her one bit.  She’s used to holding her own with the boys.

When I saw the wanted posters, I thought how true that really was.

Each one of us has our face on God’s Most Wanted poster.  It doesn’t matter who we are or what we have done or what we look like.  God wants you just as much as He wants me or the person standing next to you in the grocery line.

“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?  And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’

Luke 15:4-6

You are God’s Most Wanted.

His Beloved.

His precious sheep.

All you have to do is call His name and He will gather you up and rejoice.

For you, who were lost and wanted oh so much, has been found.

Living thru faith,

Misty
