Listen to the sermon (mp3)
Luke 15 tells 3 serious calls in parables about the truth that God loves and values lost people.
God doesn't put any special precondition between man's being "lost and found." But we Christians tend to require the prebelievers to Behave (behavioral change) and/or to Believe (right Biblical doctrine) first before they can Belong to God's family (the church community).
First and foremost when a person belongs to the community, the Holy Spirit begins his good work in his life to both 'Believe' and 'Behave.'
It matters what we say, how we invite the prebelievers to Belong.
What can we change to let God deal with the 'Believe' or the 'Behave'? So that they will say 'Yes' to the One who calls them and makes that divine appointment/encounter.
