Luke-Lost Coin

Luke 15:8  Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?  

Another parable; a story describing a spiritual message. Ten silver coins belonging to a woman, one has been found missing. The church is as a woman. The woman lights a candle, if the church is missing a person, they need to let their light shine. The light of the Holy Spirit is needed.  

Gal 6:1  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

Luke 15:9  And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.  

The church should rejoice, but sometimes they would rather judge the one who has returned.

Luke 15:10  Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.  

 The angels rejoice, we should rejoice as well. God rejoices at restoration, what greater miracle is there than I life returned to God?
