Time to Celebrate!

Jean Fleming wrote the following in Discipleship Journal:

“Recently something rapturous happened a few spaces down the church pew from me. The pastor announced that a young boy in our congregation named Crockett had given his heart to Christ that week. Another boy, about four years of age, jumped up on the seat of our pew, thrust his fist into the air, and yelled, ‘Yeah, Crockett!’

His response was totally unself-conscious; his joy and exuberance exhilarated and rebuked me. His mother had him sitting again in a second. Too bad. The entire congregation should have been standing on the pews.”

In the life of any church, history is made when a person receives Christ. These are moments so great that they must be celebrated in heaven—and on earth.

“In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”—Luke 15:10.
