Luke15. “Rejoicing in Heaven” Sunday December 31, 2017, 11am

We can actually bring rejoicing in heaven by bringing in the lost sheep. Isn’t it something, that a human being here on earth can set off a great time of rejoicing in heaven.

Jesus teaches us how much the Lord searches for the lost in three parables, the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the prodigal son.

Have we ever considered what it takes to brings joy to the Lord? Most of our time is spent seeking joy for ourselves. We will find that by bringing joy to GOD, our joy will also increase. Jesus tells us he who loses his life for my sake will find it.

GOD's great joy is giving us eternal life through his son Jesus; whose blood cleanses us from all sin. GOD's great joy is sending his Holy Spirit to teach us all about him and how we are to be holy, as he is holy.

GOD has great joy when we learn his commandments and follow them.

What causes GOD and all of heaven to have great joy and rejoicing? We find that there is great joy in heaven for the lost soul returning to GOD. The most beautiful words on earth are “Lord, I am coming home.”

So, in the coming year, let us see how many celebrations that we can set off in heaven.

A. GOD's joy for the lost, when saved, is demonstrated in the lost Sheep.1-7
B. GOD's joy for the lost, when saved, is demonstrated in the lost coin.8-10
C. GOD's joy is for lost ones, When they say, Lord I'm coming home.11-29
May GOD bless you with His grace and peace through His son Jesus our savior
