The Lord Rejoices Over Every Repentant Sinner

Everyone Whose Sincere Wish is to Please God and serve Him, should ask his or herself This question; What causes God Joy?... The answer isn't far Fetched; It is that God rejoices over every Sinner Who repents. Seeing that People Acknowledge that they have been on the wrong Pathway and are Prepared to leave it and turn back to Him (God), gives the Lord Tremendous Joy. The Subjects of the 15th Chapter of Luke's Gospel describes the Divine Joy felt in the Heavens, through the Three Parables told by Jesus.

The First parable (The Parable of the Lost Sheep) speaks of the joy felt by a Shepherd over his lost but later found sheep. Verse 7 of Chapter 15, from the Gospel of Luke (Shown below) gives an insight into the Joy felt over the lost but found Sheep;

The Second parable (The Parable of the lost piece of Silver) speaks of the joy felt over the lost but found piece of Silver. Verse 10 of Chapter 15, from the Gospel of Luke (Shown below) also gives an insight into the Joy felt over the lost but later found piece of Silver.

Finally, the Third Parable (The Parable of the Prodigal Son); Speaks of the Joy of a father over the return of his wayward son, Just as God would rejoice over any who would Genuinely repent in Righteousness. The Gospel of Luke, Chapter 15; Verse 32 (Shown Below) describes such Joy and merry.

All have sinned and come short of God's Glory, but still the Fact remains that Whoever turns to God as a lost sinner will have a part in God's Rejoicing; Even the Angels would Rejoice.
