Pursue And Recover All (3 of 4)
INTRODUCTION: God is able to perform miracles! The Lost series promotes the heart of Father God to restore things, people, and life itself. Restoring the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the lost son are the parables we are examining. God is the ultimate restorer. He never gives up restoring.
