Are you familiar with Luke 15:10 “Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.”? Our home Bible To You outreach received a Finding Direction In God’s Word, Lesson 1 from a man in Columbia, S. Carolina, a few weeks ago, where the writer said he received Jesus as Saviour while doing the lesson. We were all smiles when we read about it, and there was joy in the presence of the angels of God when that man got saved!
Our 20 year old grandson works a full time job and also mows for several people. One lady, in her 80’s, just learned last week that she has stomach cancer . We had taken the initiative in the past to send her a Bible study and offer to send more, but she did not respond. Our church family has been praying for her salvation for some time.
On his way to church, M. E. Jr. took the time to stop at her house and express his love and concern for her physically, and for her soul. After sharing his own testimony, he asked her if she had ever received Jesus as her Saviour, to which she said that she had not. She allowed him to lead her in a prayer for salvation. He asked her if she had meant it and she assured him she had. At church, we were all happy, and, just a short time before, there was joy in the presence of the angels of God!!!
