Luke 15:1–7 AV
1 Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them. 3 And he spake this parable unto them, saying, 4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? 5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
Luke 15:1–4 AV
1 Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them. 3 And he spake this parable unto them, saying, 4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
Luke 15:1–4 RVR60
1 Se acercaban a Jesús todos los publicanos y pecadores para oírle, 2 y los fariseos y los escribas murmuraban, diciendo: Este a los pecadores recibe, y con ellos come. 3 Entonces él les refirió esta parábola, diciendo: 4 ¿Qué hombre de vosotros, teniendo cien ovejas, si pierde una de ellas, no deja las noventa y nueve en el desierto, y va tras la que se perdió, hasta encontrarla?
Luke 15:1–7 RVR60
1 Se acercaban a Jesús todos los publicanos y pecadores para oírle, 2 y los fariseos y los escribas murmuraban, diciendo: Este a los pecadores recibe, y con ellos come. 3 Entonces él les refirió esta parábola, diciendo: 4 ¿Qué hombre de vosotros, teniendo cien ovejas, si pierde una de ellas, no deja las noventa y nueve en el desierto, y va tras la que se perdió, hasta encontrarla? 5 Y cuando la encuentra, la pone sobre sus hombros gozoso; 6 y al llegar a casa, reúne a sus amigos y vecinos, diciéndoles: Gozaos conmigo, porque he encontrado mi oveja que se había perdido. 7 Os digo que así habrá más gozo en el cielo por un pecador que se arrepiente, que por noventa y nueve justos que no necesitan de arrepentimiento.

Intro

Our study is He Found the One
Remember, He left the 99 sheep
The Pharisees
Those that did not need Him
He went and found the one
The one that did want Him
That did need Him
We later saw the Man of the Gadarenes - The Man With Demons
The man with a legion of demons
Christ left a multitude of people
crossed the sea
and found this man
Then we saw The woman of Samaria - The Unfaithful Woman
Christ left the Pharisees
made a special trip to go find just her
Mary Magdalene - The Suffering Woman
Christ came to the tomb in her time of need
He came just to her, to heal her broken heart
Saul - The Religious Persecutor
Met him on the road to Damascus
Took a man fighting against Him and turned Saul into one of the greatest missionaries to this day.
Started with 99 and 1
Then went and saw 4 people that Christ went and looked for
Christ came to all of them
Looked for them
And found them
But does the story end there?
There is more
Let’s continue reading in our original verses and find out what happened.
Luke 15:5–7 AV
5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
There some things similar with every single one of these people
Luke 15:5–7 RVR60
5 Y cuando la encuentra, la pone sobre sus hombros gozoso; 6 y al llegar a casa, reúne a sus amigos y vecinos, diciéndoles: Gozaos conmigo, porque he encontrado mi oveja que se había perdido. 7 Os digo que así habrá más gozo en el cielo por un pecador que se arrepiente, que por noventa y nueve justos que no necesitan de arrepentimiento.
Luke 15:5-7

The Shepherd Went Rejoicing - gozoso

The first thing we see is that the Shepherd went rejoicing
Who is the Shepherd?
Of course we know, in our story, that is Christ.
When I read the story here, I think, that is great, a sweet story.
The shepherd was happy to find to find his sheep.
But when we look at this story as we have seen in the past weeks it changes that perspective
This isnt just any shepherd, this is the Good Shepherd
This not any sheep, this sheep is just like you and I
this sheep was not worthy
This sheep was lost
This sheep was without hope
yet the Shepherd Went and found a sheep that was just like you and me
Then, He was so happy to find that sheep
Help the sheep
Rescue you and me
He rejoiced
He was so excited to find a dirty ole sheep like me that He went and told others
Example - Let’s put this into something we would understand
Imagine He got on to a bus, sat down, the first thing He did was tell
Imagine he was walking down the street with a friend, the first thing He does is tell
Imagine He sat down with family for supper, the first thing He does is tell
He is so excited, He tell everyone what happened
He Found The One!
When Christ saved my soul, He was so excited, He told others
Not only did Christ rejoice, He let ALL of Heaven know what He found
ALL of Heaven rejoiced with Him
Imagine, Christ was that excited to find you and to find me
Personally, I dont think this joy only applies to our salvation
Remember, Christ went and found Mary Magdalene the suffering woman
Saul/Paul the Religious Persecutor that would carry His gospel to the Gentiles
I believe Christ was excited to help Mary.
Was excited to use Saul and give saul greater things than he ever imagined
I believe Christ wants to save us
Wants to heal us when we suffer
Wants to use us
Imagine, Christ and ALL of Heaven rejoicing, because of you!

The Shepherd Went Rejoicing - gozoso

The Sheep Went Recounting

The Sheep Went Recounting - Publicando

Our message does not stop with Christ and Heaven rejoicing
There is something that happened with each of our people that I believe is important to know.
They couldn’t help but let others know what Christ did
Man of Gadarenes - Man with demons
Mark 5:19–20 AV
19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. 20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
Mark 5:19–20 RVR60
19 Mas Jesús no se lo permitió, sino que le dijo: Vete a tu casa, a los tuyos, y cuéntales cuán grandes cosas el Señor ha hecho contigo, y cómo ha tenido misericordia de ti. 20 Y se fue, y comenzó a publicar en Decápolis cuán grandes cosas había hecho Jesús con él; y todos se maravillaban.
. Man with demons
.
Woman of Samaria - unfaithful woman
John 4:28–29 AV
28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, 29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
John 4:28–29 RVR60
28 Entonces la mujer dejó su cántaro, y fue a la ciudad, y dijo a los hombres: 29 Venid, ved a un hombre que me ha dicho todo cuanto he hecho. ¿No será éste el Cristo?
Mary Magdalene - suffering woman
John 20:18 AV
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
John 20:18 RVR60
18 Fue entonces María Magdalena para dar a los discípulos las nuevas de que había visto al Señor, y que él le había dicho estas cosas.
Saul - religious persecutor
Acts 9:20 AV
20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
Acts 9:20 RVR60
20 En seguida predicaba a Cristo en las sinagogas, diciendo que éste era el Hijo de Dios.
Each one of the people that Christ came and found did the same thing afterwards
They all went and told others
They all went and shared that they had seen Christ
what Christ had done for them
I think of the woman of Samaria.
Scripture never says that Christ told her to go tell others
It was as if she couldnt help herself
She wanted others to know what Christ did
Christ did something so great for them they had to tell
He Freed the man with demons
He came to an unfaithful woman as if she was special like anyone else
He healed a suffering woman with a broken heart
He came to use a man the had persecuted the church
They Didn’t just go share their experience, they all went and shared Christ
Look at those verses again and see
Every one of them shared what HE had done.
Others heard about Christ through them
Example:
There can be 10 parents at a game.
If you ask those parents about that game, each one will tell you what their child did
How great their child is
They cant help but talk about the special one in their life.
Christ touched these people and they had to tell what that special Person did in their life
Christ cared enough to come to them and touch their lives
They had to go tell others what He did for them

The Shepherd Went Rejoicing - gozoso

The Sheep Went Recounting - recontando

The Sheep Went Recounting - Publicando

The Others Went Renewed - Renovado

Christ was seen through them
In people like Paul told, they may not have seen Him physically
They came to know Him
They were introduced to the One that was looking for them
Many came to know Christ because Christ had touched these 4 people
Because these 4 were so excited and rejoicing, others came to know Christ
They were able to be freed from their demons
Special in their unfaithfulness
Healed from their suffering
Used in His ministry
All because these four were not ashamed of Christ
They not only were willing
they were excited to go
tell others about Christ
What Christ did for them
Paul taught a lot of doctrine
However, the others, we never see them teaching
John 5:19–20 AV
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
John 5:20 AV
20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
Mark 5:20 AV
20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
Mark 5:20 RVR60
20 Y se fue, y comenzó a publicar en Decápolis cuán grandes cosas había hecho Jesús con él; y todos se maravillaban.
we see they just went and told what Christ did for them
How Christ had helped them
Through this, others were helped
Others came to know Christ
Others found out what great things Christ could do for them too

Conclusion

We have studied for several messages now that Christ came and Found the one
But today, we have seen that this is not the end
We have seen that not only did He find them,
He rejoiced to find them
All of Heaven rejoiced that He found them
Evidently they were rejoicing as they went and told others what Christ did
But even more, Christ was seen through them
God was glorified through them
Others came to know Christ because of them
Has Christ come to find you?
Has Christ ever healed your broken heart?
Has Christ ever offered/tried to use you?
What have you done?
I believe that if Christ has ever REALLy found you, not only will there be rejoicing in Heaven
You wont be able to help but go and tell others
You will have to go If you have been freed
If you have been freed
You will have to tell if you have been healed from suffering
You will have to share if you have been able to do something for your Savior
You may not be sharing great doctrines as Paul did
But you can share the great things that Christ has done for you
Think about it?
What has God really done for you?
Do you have reason to rejoice?
Do you have something that you can share?
Christ was so excited to find you, all of Heaven rejoiced
How much joy do you have?
When is the last time you shared this?
Rejoice in the Lord
Rejoice that you are saved
Rejoice that He loved you so much that He came for you
Rejoice that He loves/d you
Rejoice that He has touched your life
Rejoice that He has changed your life
Philippians 4:4 AV
4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
Phili
Philippians 4:4 RVR60
4 Regocijaos en el Señor siempre. Otra vez digo: ¡Regocijaos!
It is time to go share what Christ has done for you
It is time that others come to know Christ through your testimony
What will you do with what Christ has done for you?
If He has really, really touched you, you wont be able to hide it
Like the crippled man, It was obvious because anyone that saw him, saw him up and walking
With Lazarus, it was obvious because he was dead but he was up walking around
If Christ has touched you, people ought to see the change He made in you
Has Christ touch you?
Can others see it?
Psalm 96:1–5 AV
1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. 2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. 3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. 4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. 5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
Psalm 96:1–5 RVR60
1 Cantad a Jehová cántico nuevo; Cantad a Jehová, toda la tierra. 2 Cantad a Jehová, bendecid su nombre; Anunciad de día en día su salvación. 3 Proclamad entre las naciones su gloria, En todos los pueblos sus maravillas. 4 Porque grande es Jehová, y digno de suprema alabanza; Temible sobre todos los dioses. 5 Porque todos los dioses de los pueblos son ídolos; Pero Jehová hizo los cielos.
Psalm 96:1-
Psalm 96 AV
1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. 2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. 3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. 4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. 5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens. 6 Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary. 7 Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. 8 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts. 9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth. 10 Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously. 11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof. 12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice 13 Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
