What amazes me about the stories we heard is that God is a God of redemption. There is no person who is too lost, hopeless, addicted or broken to matter to God. The Bible tells us that Jesus leaves 99 sheep in the pen to go find one lost sheep who has wandered away (Luke 15:1-7). Jesus never stops looking for his lost sheep.
We must recognize that everyone needs Jesus. On our own we are all lost whether we live good lives or not. The Bible teaches that all have sinned and fallen short (Romans 3:23).
I would highly encourage you to check out the audio for this week and hear the stories the guys from Teen Challenge shared with us.
