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

We as a society, celebrate a lot of things. We celebrate when our child graduates school, we celebrate when our team wins a big game, and we celebrate marriage engagements.

With all these things to celebrate, a lot of us overlook the most important thing. That celebration has to do with salvation. When a person commits their lives to God, through Jesus Christ, all the angels in heaven are overjoyed. Meanwhile, on earth, we give them a 15 second hand-clap and go about our day.

The same enthusiasm we have over a team winning a game is the same enthusiasm we should have regarding salvation. Salvation is THE most important thing a person can do with their lives and it deserves more than a simple hand-clap.

Although it may not directly impact our lives, it impacts the family of God. So, pray for the lost, shake their hands when they make a commitment to God, and continue to pray for them as they journey through life. While we’re celebrating Christmas, don’t forget to celebrate salvation.
