Do you know God love to hear you? He will leave those they do not need Him ( although His grace will be never ended till they come to God). He will come to you if you are broken and needy. Luke 15 says in obvious. He is God , Father of all. Father of YOU. In this chapter which Jesus talk about His kingdom with Parables. We see three parables : the parable of lost sheep , the parables of lost coin and the parables of lost son.
In all three parables , there is one scope . Return of a sinner and repentance. But the good news is here , He is the good Father of all of us. He is looking for you.
Today, I mainly talk about the lost son. But it should be a lost daughter , a lost kid , a lost family or a lost nation. God is God. He is a good father. Luke 15: 11-24
Then Jesus said, “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger son said to his father, ‘Give me now the part of your property that I am supposed to receive someday.’ So the father divided his wealth between his two sons.
A man for a city had two sons. Both of them were impatient. But younger one day , with a disrespectful and very arrogant way told to his father . ‘Give me my portion “, He did not request it , but he demand it. Here sometimes we replace the gift of our God like debts. We think we know everything and we want to do our business without our Father’s hand. We like to go by our own. We want to follow our desire’s heart which are not lining up with God’s heart. ‘ Give me my portion Father ‘ I know how to handle it. I know how to run the business . I know how to make families .
Sometimes, we do like younger son. We all have been in that state, weren’t we?
His father did , what he wanted! He did the desire of younger son. According to his will. The Father divided his wealth between two. He is not opposite of you and you have been created with free will. But the decisions you make , are they line up with God’s plan. Are you separating your relationship with God. This is a dangerous line. You need to be very careful. The younger son spent all of his money, everything he had gone. He wasted his money living like a fool. Bad things behind bad things as there was a terrible famine throughout the country. He lost his wealth , there was a bad famine , No job was around to do till he saw himself in a position , he has nothing left to eat even. Than when he was hungry , he went to the fields to feed the pigs , He wanted to eat the food of them..
The Son realized…
The beginning of the grace starts when we realize we have been very foolish about the things we did. This is a beginning story of backing home where you belonged.
You being to realize what I was living what I am doing now. This is a story of repentance. This helps you to return to Home. There is no shame in it. You are stepping up and nearing yourself to be found.
You realized …
Of your sinful state , starting to say ‘ Father , I am sorry what I have done , I know was wrong and I am sorry for that , forgive me ‘. This is start of Grace in your life. You want to be found? Come back where you have been at . You are still His child. No matter where you spent your money and time.
This is a come back story for you. This is a good news for you. So please do something as younger son did with his foolishness ‘So he left and went to his father.’
Verse 20 of Luke 15 says , ‘While the son was still a long way off, his father saw him coming and felt sorry for him. So he ran to him and hugged and kissed him.’
Before his going to tell anything , Father , hugged and kissed him. He loved him , He was waiting for him to come back. So , your heavenly Father waiting for you , He loved you and still loves you to come back to Him, where your real home belongs. You are Found by His Grace. His arms are open for you. He knows you individually and you are uniquely remarkable for Him. Don’t listen to lie of enemy.
So , now left behind your old creation and be born again in Jesus name and wear a new cloth and a gold ring because you are backed Home.
Shoot me a message here and tick it as private, I would be glad to pray for you right away.
