Luke 1510In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
Perhaps David can help us understand how this prodigal felt to be celebrated.
Psa. 23 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
(The Father celebrates us in front of our enemies. There is nothing hell can do to stop this celebration.)
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and love (mercy) will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
The prodigal is now convinced I belong here. I am here forever.
There is an empty chair at this table. Will you come and take your place with the family of God?
