Joy in Heaven

In this work we see a rose on the verge of becoming fully blossomed. Its petals as if arms outstretched to receive and be filled with life. Likewise, we in our being open and receive true life in Christ when we accept His Redemption. From that moment, and each day afterward, our soul responds and blossoms in His sublime grace.    

The most beautiful event on earth today is when someone receives Jesus Christ. In that moment, eternity meets mortality, light penetrates darkness, and wandering emptiness is filled with supernatural joy.

Do you think you are insignificant? Jesus said there is joy in heaven over one sinner who repents. Out of the billions of lives on earth, considering that each is so celebrated, how much does God love you?

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?.  Psalm 27:1
