This past Sunday, October 23, 2016, our First Baptist Dallas iCampus was so thrilled to learn from one of our iCampus members in Puerto Rico that a PhD student she has been faithfully praying for turned to the Lord this past week!
It is true...God is always in the details. As Jas, the iCampus member was sharing this great news, Dr. Jeffress was simultaneously illustrating God's attitude towards people who are living apart from Him. God doesn't hate those who are "lost." He loves them and is overjoyed when He is reunited with them. In the message, "Do people know what is happening on earth?" it was so exciting to learn that God is not the only One who is ecstatic over a sinner who is reunited with God:
Luke 15:7, 10 tells us:
"...there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."
