Bring the fatted calf, and kill it, and let us eat, and make merry: for this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. Luke 15.23, 24.

Let me give you a new thought today, which is the joy of God. On the night I was saved, the more I thought about it the merrier I became and the more I sang. I did not mind if there were neither rhyme nor tune. And such is the joy of being saved. Nevertheless, this Scripture verse tells us that it was the father who was joyful. It is therefore the joy of God in His saving a soul that is being expressed here. We usually think when a sinner is saved, how glad he is, and how glad we are. We fail to realize how joyful God the Father also is when He saves a sinner. If we see this, we can begin to understand the Father.
