Text Luke 15:11-23
One thing the devil knows how to do best is to take his prey deeper into believing his lies. When we fall into sin, the devil tries so hard to make us believe we can never be forgiven by God. Believing this lie will lead us farther away from God as we gradually decide to live our lives independent of God. Our text today tells us how large the father’s heart is towards us. More than our biological parents God told the children of Israel
“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” Isaiah 49:15
No matter how far you try to move away from God, he never forgets you
There is a place for you in your father’s house. No matter how hard you fall, no matter what you have done, the father’s arm is wide open eagerly waiting to have you back. Do not let the devil deceive you for so long into thinking God is angry with you and will never forgive you. God is rather waiting to hear from you concerning that sin. Speak to him in prayers, ask for his forgiveness as a father, worship him for forgiving you, and determine to live to glorify him.
Our God is our father, you are not a slave neither are you an illegitimate child. As long as you have confessed Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you have a place in Gods kingdom, you have all rights as a Child of God…
If you have moved away from home, return home brother/sister… the father is eagerly waiting to have you back.
Prayer: Thank you Jesus for making me a son of God through your blood, give me the power to always take my place as your son even here on earth. Amen
