In Luke 15:10 we see that “there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents." But do we rejoice? This is a powerful question and might explain why the Church in America is not thriving. So to answer this question let’s ask who is in the presence of the angels of God? The answer: God and His Saints!
OK! If God and those He has set free are rejoicing then why are we not? We must get back to the place where we celebrate God and the work He does in the life of the sinner (us). Next Sunday we are baptizing 2 young ladies and I am pumped. Is everything perfect in our church absolutely not! But this helps me to look past what’s wrong and “rejoice”. There will always be people who don’t like everything and there will always be those people and those things you want to see change. But people giving their life to Jesus is why we are here as the church.
Let’s face it there are those who would love to focus on everything in the world but reaching people for Jesus! If I got honest it’s easy for me to focus on everything but reaching people for Jesus. The greatest need in the world is Jesus and His forgiveness and we need to remember that! I want to reach people for Jesus, be excited about it, and never get over it! Next Sunday when we baptize those two ladies it’s going to be a new day for our church and I can’t wait. We are going to celebrate them being a part of our church like God and His saints do in heaven (or try at least)! It’s going to be different, but it’s going to be awesome!
