Heaven Rejoices when we Repent

There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents. —Luke 15:10

Christian parents rejoiced when their children have given their lives to Christ.
They were so excited that they called for celebration immediately.
They wanted to tell the exciting news to others.
They rejoiced through tears...

The woman in Luke 15 had found her lost coin.
She called her friends and neighbors together to rejoice with her.

Jesus told this story.
He also told about a lost sheep and a lost son.
He wanted to show how He came to earth to pursue lost sinners. 

When we accept God’s gift of salvation, there is rejoicing on earth and in heaven. 
Heaven rejoices when we respond! 
Angels rejoice when we repent!
