The Story of the Lost Sheep

If one sheep out of a hundred wanders off from the rest of the flock, a good shepherd will go out in search of the one until he finds it and brings it back to the fold. Jesus' parable of the lost sheep in John 15:3-7 highlights the love of God for every sinner and the joy God has when a sinner repents and returns home. These Bible lesson activities help children learn about this parable and its meaning. God's love truly is amazing!
