Do Angels Grieve? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/03/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Jesus said, “There is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” I can’t help but wonder: If the angels rejoice when we repent, do they grieve when we harden our hearts and do the opposite?

When we reject God’s will and His right to rule in our lives, we certainly don’t give them any reason to celebrate.

I need to ask myself, Is my life bringing joy in heaven? Like the angels, do I get pleasure out of doing God’s will? Do I celebrate when I see sinners, including myself, repent and turn from sin?

Spend some time examining your heart. Like the angels of heaven, are you motivated by God’s glory? Ask God to give you a heart that rejoices when His will is done in your life and in the lives of others.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
