I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents (Luke 15:10).
How much do you matter to God? Three parables in Luke 15 compare the value of a lost coin, a lost sheep and a lost son to the value God places on each human life. In each case, these three things were highly valued and diligently sought after when lost.
And, in each case, there was much rejoicing when found. Jesus tells us that likewise, and in much greater measure, God and His angels rejoice over even one sinner who was lost and is found. That’s the reality of how much God loves you.
Hebrews 2:7 tells us, “God has crowned us with glory and honor.” We have the ability to live like royalty as sons and daughters of The King. But first we must recognize that our crowns are broken because of sin, turn to Christ for forgiveness and trust Him to restore us to our royal position through the power of the cross. Are you living up to the value God has placed on your life?
Take your flimsy and broken crown to the the feet of Jesus Christ, repent of your sins, and let him give you a new crown of eternal glory. And start living like royalty!
