LUKE 15:1-10 NKJV Then all the TAX COLLECTORS and the (notorious and wicked) SINNERS drew near to Him to hear Jesus. 2 And the (religious leaders) Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, "This Man receives SINNERS and eats with them." 3 So He spoke this parable to them, saying: 4 "What man of you, having a HUNDRED SHEEP, if HE LOSES ONE of them, does not LEAVE THE NINETY-NINE in the wilderness, and GO AFTER THE ONE which is lost UNTIL HE FINDS IT?

 

5 "And when he has found [it], he lays [it] on his shoulders, REJOICING. 6 "And when he comes home, he calls together [his] friends and neighbors, saying to them, 'REJOICE with me, for I HAVE FOUND MY SHEEP WHICH WAS LOST!' 7 "I say to you that likewise there will be MORE JOY IN HEAVEN over one (notorious and wicked) SINNER WHO REPENTS than OVER NINETY-NINE JUST PERSONS who need no repentance.

 

8 "Or what woman, having TEN SILVER COINS, if SHE LOSES ONE COIN, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully UNTIL SHE FINDS [IT]? 9 "And when she has found [it], she calls [her] friends and neighbors together, saying, 'REJOICE with me, for I HAVE FOUND THE PIECE WHICH I LOST!' 10 "Likewise, I say to you, there is JOY in the presence of the ANGELS OF GOD over ONE (notorious and wicked) SINNER who REPENTS."

 

RECKLESS LOVE LYRICS

 

Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me

Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine

I couldn't earn it, and I don't deserve it, still, You give Yourself away

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah

When I was Your foe, still Your love fought for me
You have been so, so good to me
When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me
You have been so, so kind to me

There's no shadow You won't light up
Mountain You won't climb up
Coming after me
There's no wall You won't kick down
Lie You won't tear down
Coming after me

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine
And I couldn't earn it, I don't deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah
