"Rejoice with me"

In the fifteenth chapter of Luke's Gospel is found a parable in which Jesus pictured a man with a hundred sheep who left the ninety-nine in search of one that was lost. Describing the man's pleasure at finding his lost sheep, the Gospel tells us, "And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost."

The familiar parable then concludes with the message that there shall be more joy in heaven over one repentant sinner than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.
