Even so, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. Luke 15.10.

Have we ever thought of how each return and each obedience gives joy to the Father’s heart? The peak of the gospel lies not in what the sinner receives but what God receives. How we should give ourselves wholly to Him. How much can we give to God? Let us not assume it does not matter if we grow a little bit cold. We should know what loss our little bit of coldness gives to God. Let us not rationalize that it is only a small thing to love the world and be mixed up with it. We ought to realize that this has much to do with our relationship to God: how this will cause much loss to the Father.

Consecration is not forced on us to put us down; rather, it enables us to enter the joy of God, that he may rejoice because of us. How wonderful this is! May we enter into the Father’s joy today, and give God cause to be glad!
