To see the look of revelation in someone’s eyes, the birth of a dream long awaited for finally coming to fruition is such a sacred moment. The feeling of awe, the dawning in my own soul and the surpassing joy I feel for that person is almost too unbearable and it’s not even happening to me or someone I know.
I wonder if it’s like that for God and all the angels in heaven when a new soul is born into the kingdom of Christ. A shaft of brilliant light cracking open the universe reaching out to its ends when that once lost soul opens its eyes to the Truth and says, “Yes, I will follow.” What an uproarious cheer must be heard in heaven at such a statement! What a celebration! Angels standing to their feet, their clapping sounds like a torrent of waterfalls that never end.
Is it like the miracle of birth, the surprise to learn “it’s a boy,” or “it’s a girl” and they are received into eager, aching arms? Oh, how you clutch that baby against your chest and you feel your heart melt, making room for a love you never thought possible. Is that what you feel Lord when another soul is born?
How big Your heart must be.
Luke 15:1-10 (verse 7) “I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”
