12 “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?
13 And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.
14 "In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish."
"Indeed, the Son of man has come to seek and to save people who are lost."
9God showed how much he loved us by sending His one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him.
10This is real love—not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
"For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him."
