what is the quality of our searchlight? - celebration!

Celebration!

In both stories that Jesus told, the story ends with rejoicing. And this is not just a little rejoicing, "Oh I found my lost coin" - it is a come home, call your friends, throw a party, rejoicing! So Jesus says it is when even one who was lost to God is found. I'm ready to shelve the word evangelism - it scares people; it sounds like Christianity for the advanced super-Christian. What God wants is simply people who are so full of Jesus Christ that they light up a room, even light up a neighborhood. I've seen you light up this room as you welcome folks and worship God. I know you can light up this neighborhood because I know the source of your joy and hope and life. And I'm ready to celebrate what God is going to do!
