There is nothing more exciting than seeing a person rescued on TV. It’s not that the other people in the story are less important, it’s just exciting to see someone saved from potential death and destruction. In the same way, God’s ultimate desire is to bring each and every person into relationship with Him. While God provisioned a way through Christ’s sacrifice for us, when any one of us comes or returns to Him, there is much rejoicing. In Luke 15:7 Jesus says, I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. It is not that God does not care about the righteous, it is about saving one more of His children from eternal death.
