The theme for today’s daily devotional by David Jeremiah is ”Joy Among the Angels”
Scripture: Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.-Luke 15:10.
Corrie ten Boom, the Dutch Christian, often spoke of salvation as the “decision that [makes] the angels sing.” Whenever she led someone to Christ, she was aware of rejoicing taking place in heaven.
Of the Gospel writers, Luke refers to angels most often. He relates Jesus’ parable of the woman finding her lost coin. She called her neighbors to rejoice with her. Jesus said, “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents” (15:10, NIV).
Think of the moment you received Christ as your Savior. Perhaps you weren’t aware of it, but your decision was celebrated with joy and singing among the Lord and His angels.
Angels are intrigued by salvation and rejoice when a person accepts Christ as Savior. When anyone comes to Christ, let’s rejoice like the angels in heaven.
The angels of heaven rejoice over sinners that repent: saints of God, will not you and I do the same? I do not think the church rejoices enough. We all grumble enough and groan enough: but very few of us rejoice enough.
