Joy in Heaven

In Luke 15 Jesus tells of three parties on earth because a sheep was found, silver was found, and a son was found. Then in verses 7 and 10 he tells the reason for the stories: “I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent,” and “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
