I was born … and heaven rejoiced


Let me start off by saying that the very title of this article may seem weird to some and to others, even impossible – but kindly bear with me for a little bit longer and you would see how relevant and important it is.

On the 3rd of March, each year, my family celebrates this day, as the day I was born and this year it is no different. And on this day, as I pondered the message, that God has in store for me and his people, I realized that when someone is born, it is a time of celebration … but even greater celebration is for those who are born again i.e., those who have believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior – for to be born once, means we die twice (physically and spiritually), but to be born twice (physically and spiritually) is to die once (physically) and that is reason, even for the angels in heaven to rejoice (Luke 15:10) for the one who was lost is now found.

Points to ponder:
– When we are born, the people who love us (angels on earth) rejoice.
– When we are born again, the angels in heaven rejoice.
Can you say, that you have made the angels in heaven rejoice? In other words, can you say, “I was born (again), and the angels in heaven rejoiced?”

Luke 15:10 (KJV)
10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
