The Presence of the Angels

Have you ever had a birthday party?

Chances are, when you walked into the room everyone cheered and began to sing joyfully. 

And why not?

They were celebrating your special day. 

Your friends were truly happy for you. 

If you know Jesus as your Savior, there was rejoicing in Heaven the moment you repented of your sins and asked for forgiveness. 

How do I know?

The Bible tells us in Luke 15:10 that

“In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

Can you just imagine the scene?

Angels rejoicing. 

Angels rejoicing over you. 

Like a birthday party, they were truly happy in celebrating your special day–the day you entered God’s eternal salvation. 

God sent Jesus to the world to pay the price for our sins, purchasing a place for us in Heaven. 

Now, that’s something to rejoice about!

But Rejoicing Comes

Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
    praise his holy name.
 For his anger lasts only a moment,
    but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.

—Psalm 30:4-5
