WE ARE ALL SPIRITUAL RUNAWAYS

Many people have heard the story of the prodigal son narrated in Luke 15:11-32. It's the story of the runaway son who fled the fellowship of his family to pursue his own lustful pleasures and squandered his inheritance. After he ended up broke he returned to his family in shame and despair. His father, instead of rejecting him, threw a big party in celebration of his return.

How many times have you and I become a spiritual prodigal son or daughter? I know I sure have been more times than I would like to think. We are spiritual prodigals every time we leave God out of our goals and dreams, or replace God with other gods. We are spiritual prodigals each time we seek lustful desires, greed, coveteousness, or become proud. A prodigal "attitude" is one that says God doesn't matter.

However, like the earthly father in the story, our heavenly Father is there to meet us with welcoming arms, waiting for our return, as the following verses confirm.

"The Lord redeems the soul of His servants; and none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned." Psalm 34:22

"When he falls, he shall not be hurled headlong; Because the Lord is the One who holds his hand." Psalm 37:24

"The Lord is gracious and merciful; Slow to anger and great in lovingkindness." "The Lord sustains all who fall, And raises up all who are bowed down." Psalm 145:8,14

We have such a loving God!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
