- A certain man was giving a banquet. All the preparation was done, the table was set, and none of the invited guests showed up. The host master then asked his servants to go to all the streets and alleys, to invite and to bring in to the banquet the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame. (Bible/NIV/Luke 14:15-24).
- A lame and handicapped man named Mephibosheth was living a normal life and a routine day when, suddenly, the King, King David, sent looking for him, and to bring him to the palace for him to eat at the King's table. (2 Samuel 9:7); (Bible/NIV/ 2 Samuel 9/ Whole Chapter).
- The prodigal son, upon returning home after regaining his senses, was received jubilantly by his father who put on a feast and a big celebration for him. The father said: "For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found." (https://www.bible.com/bible/111/LUK.15.24.NIV). (Bible/NIV/Luke 15:11-31).
- The shepherd that lost a sheep, left the ninety-nine sheep to go and look for the single sheep that was lost. When he finds it, he carries it on his shoulders to make sure that he brings the lost sheep back home to be with the other ninety-nine sheep where it belongs. (Bible/NIV/Luke 15:3-7) (https://www.bible.com/bible/111/LUK.15.NIV).
Like in the case of the lost sheep being carried back home on the shepherd's shoulders, like in the case of lame Mephibosheth being uplifted and honored by King David himself, like in the case of the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind being specifically searched for on the streets and being officially invited to partake at the Host's banquet, like in the case of the prodigal son that sparked great joy in the heart of his father upon his voluntary return home, Jesus Christ is saying joyfully to each and every one of us: "Welcome Home". He came to Earth more than two thousand years ago to teach us, to guide us, and to usher us Home. Jesus Christ is still on the job today through His Faithful, His Tireless, His Passionate, His Loyal, His Devoted, and His Holy Spirit-Filled Servants to teach us, to guide us, and to usher us Home.
