The Angels are Rejoicing in Heaven Today...

...over a lost sheep who answered the Shepherd's call!

My brother Seth (10) called me excitedly this morning to tell me the good news. He is now a follower of Christ Jesus! He has taken freely the gift of salvation offered to him...

...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Romans 3: 23-24

But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10: 8-10

In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents. Luke 15:10


  1. Praise the Lord!!

    What a terrific reminder of what is truly important.

  2. Yes! I woke up discouraged this morning over some of the election results, and after talking to Seth my perspective completely changed. :)
