Celebrations

Each year on July 4 we celebrate our nation’s independence with parties, fireworks and cookouts.

 

In much the same manner, we celebrate birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and graduations. We can read in God’s holy word of other celebrations.

 

Jesus tells of three times of celebration in his parables in Luke 15. He tells a story of finding a lost sheep, a woman finding a lost silver coin and one about a younger son coming home after squandering his inheritance.

 

There was celebration because something that was lost is found. “Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth”.

 

Have you given heaven a reason to celebrate? What is lost in your life that can be found by looking to our Lord and Savior?

 

He yearns for us to be found so the celebration can begin.
