Luke — Cause Heaven to Rejoice!

Day 3139: Amazing grace, how sweet the sound!!!

Scripture: (Jesus speaking)  “Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:8-10

Thoughts/questions: We have the power!!! The power to make heaven rejoice!!! For those of us who are Christ followers, our decision to accept Jesus into our hearts and make Him Lord of our lives resulted in this rejoicing! AND, when we in any way participate in the process of someone else choosing to follow Jesus, we also have been partially responsible for heaven’s rejoicing.

Most of us like to make people laugh or make them feel good or valued in some way or the other. It is good for them and good for us! The same is true when we are involved in someone becoming a Christ follower, PLUS the heavens rejoice as well!

Knowing this happens, may we all be encouraged to step up to the plate when God calls us to testify about Jesus to non believers. Yes, we can make the heavens rejoice – WOW!

Suggested Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for these words of truth and words of encouragement . . .
