A Celestial Viewpoint

Celestial Viewpoint, A
It’s a typical Saturday in Florida. The beaches are packed, and the amusement parks are crowded. Tourists are on vacation, and Floridians hustle about their day running errands, enjoying the sunshine, and living their lives.

But in a little church in a Florida town, there is a gathering that has gotten the attention of Heaven. A group of young people has gathered from all across the state to fellowship and Bible quiz! Parents have taken time off work, coaches have driven vans loaded with kids, and quizzers have invested their time into learning Scripture. It’s fun, exciting, and it’s competitive.

As the first teams sit at the quiz table, a hush falls across the room, and a hush falls across the throne room of Heaven, too. The angels stand ready around the throne. Even the cherubim are silent on this morning. And then it happens. A question is read, and a buzzer is hit. A small voice begins to quote the Word of God in tentative hesitation. The angels stand a little taller, the streets of gold appear to shine a little brighter, and Jesus Himself begins to smile as His precious little child begins to utter words that have saved the souls of men.

The answer is finished—and whether ruled correct or incorrect—Heaven does not know because the angels begin their thunderous applause, and the cherubim once again take up their cry of “holy, holy, holy.” All of Heaven shouts and rejoices… until the start of the next question.

Melissa lives in Winter Garden, Florida, with her husband of 18 years. They homeschool their three children, who are all involved with Bible quizzing. Melissa and her family attend The Pentecostals of Apopka and are so thankful for all of God’s blessings in their lives.
