Martin Luther once referred to Jesus as the “Hound of Heaven.”
For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.
Luke 19:10 (NLT)
What a joy it is to see a good hunting dog at work, to watch him pick up a scent and doggedly follow it at all costs.
The good news is that Jesus does the same for us sinners – he seeks us out and calls us into relationship with him. One day, he will come again to take us to be with him forever.
