The word of God was delivered by Dhika, taken from Matthew 18: 12-14

Matthew 18: 12-14 (NKJV)
12.“What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying?
13.And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray.
14.Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

This word of God compares God as our Shepherd. God has a flock of sheep, God has children whom He loves. But when one sheep is lost and lost, God cares so much, He does not leave it alone. God is a good God, a good Shepherd who cares for us. When one sheep is lost, God puts the ninety-nine in a good place. And God goes to find a lost sheep. And when He finds it even in the Word of God in Luke says then He carried that one on His shoulder and He brought it home with joy. Because finally this lost sheep was found, His joy was greater than His ninety-nine sheep that were not lost. God does not want any of us to be lost or to suffer hardships until we become lost. God loves and cares for us very much. That is why God came, God sought us. God wanted to come and express His love for us. Just like this lost sheep, when Lord Jesus has now found us, let us come to him. God will lift us up on His shoulders, God will hold us back and God will give us the warmth of His love.

The word of God is continued by Ivana taken from Luke 18: 35-43

Luke 18: 35-43 (NKJV)
35.Then it happened, as He was coming near Jericho, that a certain blind man sat by the road begging.
36.And hearing a multitude passing by, he asked what it meant.
37.So they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by.
38.And he cried out, saying, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
39.Then those who went before warned him that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
40.So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be brought to Him. And when he had come near, He asked him,
41.saying, “What do you want Me to do for you?” He said, “Lord, that I may receive my sight.”
42.Then Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has made you well.”
43.And immediately he received his sight, and followed Him, glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.

“For you my friends who are sick, do not be afraid, do not worry but believe there is help in the Lord Jesus. There is Lord Jesus who will provide healing for all our ailments. This Word of God tells of a blind man who daily worked as a beggar, begging but at one point Jesus passed by a place where a blind man named Bartimaeus was. And he longed to feel the healing. And as Jesus passed by he felt a great joy in his heart. Bartimaeus knew who was passing by was not an ordinary person but Jesus and Bartimaeus cried out (Luke 18:38). Bartimaeus prayed to God and he cried out. Although many people reprimanded him but he did not stop. Bartimaeus kept crying out to God. That Lord Jesus may hear his call, and Jesus heard his cry. If we have been sick for a long time, and have not been healed, let us believe in this Word that there is Lord Jesus who will give us healing. Even in this Pandemic condition, still believe and do not worry. Lord Jesus is God who is able to give us miracles.
