Thank You Lord, for teaching Your angels to celebrate. Tell them from us “thank you for seeing for us what we can’t see”.
Lord Jesus, there might have been a time in our youth when we couldn’t wait to tell about the grade we got in a difficult class, or making the team after grueling tryouts. And as we got older; moving out on our own, finding that true love, landing that job, achieving the big promotion our maybe even the purchase of that first home.
Lord, thank You for these blessings found through moments. The stages of our lives reveal Your provision for us. But joy goes beyond moments, it weighs more than material things, and it has a reach far beyond what we feel internally; we want to share it and others want to celebrate with us.
What then when we find salvation? An event so awesome, angels erupt in celebration…..
“And when she finds it, she will call in her friends and neighbors and say, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels when even one sinner repents.”” Luke 15:9-10 NLT
Place a high emphasis on what salvation means. Elevate our pursuit to see the celebration!
If angels in heaven are rejoicing, then let us not just go home and say “marked that one off”, NO!
Sometimes I wonder if we know why we need to celebrate it, or why we wouldn’t want to desperately get our friends and loved ones to know and experience that same joy that lands on heaven!
If angels place a high emphasis on salvation, they must know or see something that is held back from us.
Thank You Lord! Praise You for grace and mercy! Thank You for salvation! Thank for the edifying power of the cross!
Motivate us beyond the moment. While the moment of salvation may be eternal, let our actions be carried on. Let us all look for opportunities to share what You do in our life.
Lord, we thank You for the blessings found in the people of Converse County. Increase Your church, let the Good News spread and may salvation be abundant.
We pray for the 9,963 people who have yet to connect into a gospel church in this county. We pray with those at Douglas Assembly of God, may the blessings of the Lord fill their actions. May God continue to expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church in this county.
The time for our conversations about church to increase has come. It’s in the name of the Christ Jesus that we pray. Amen.
