The Parable of  “The Prodigal Son” 


“Your Waiting Father”


Jesus continued:

“There was a man who had two sons.  The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’  So he divided his property between them. “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.

When he came to his senses,

he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death!  I will set out and go back to my father  and say to him:

Father,

I have sinned against heaven

and against you.

I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’


So he got up and went to his father.

“But while he was still a long way off,

his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him;

he ran to his son,

threw his arms around him and kissed him.

 

“The son said to him,


‘Father,

I have sinned against heaven

and against you.

 

I am no longer worthy to be called your son.


“But the father said to his servants,

 

‘Quick!

Bring the best robe and put it on him.

Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.

Bring the fattened calf and kill it. 

Let’s have a feast and celebrate.


For this son of mine

was dead and is alive again;

he was lost and is found....’

 

Luke 15:11-32

To my brother in Christ.

You may feel like this is the millionth time you have failed.  This is not the issue.  The issue is what our Heavenly Father thinks and feels about you. For you to enter into His peace it is important for you to focus on Him.  Therefore, whole heartily embrace the following truths about Him and experience all our Heavenly Father has for you right now.
