Lost sheep, lost coins, lost sons.
Gifted speaker and teacher Dennis Gaunt uses the three parables in Luke 15 to illustrate the Savior's deep love for us. In each story—the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the prodigal son—Jesus uses the phrase "rejoice with me" when the object of the search has been found. With tender insights and inspiring quotes, Brother Gaunt shares a rich understanding of the teachings of Christ. He invites us to love as the Savior loved and to act as He would act. Brother Gaunt says, "The Savior is asking each of us to help those who are lost find their way home. He is asking us to rejoice with Him every time one of His lost sheep is found, every time one of His precious lost coins turns up, and every time one of His prodigals returns. May we reach out to one another and bring each other home so that we may all rejoice with Him."
I've listened to this CD more times than I can possibly count. Last year, I bought a dozen copies and gave a copy to every family in our small branch. Today, as I was grabbing the product link to share with some friends, I was shocked to realize I've never left a review. So here it is: This talk is a life-changer, a perspective-shifter, and a heart-lifter. I thought I had a pretty good grasp on the gist of Christ's parables, but there's such a beautiful, soul-deep message in this talk that goes far beyond what I'd previously understood. I highly recommend buying more than one copy, because I can pretty much guarantee you're going to want to share this. :)
