You Had Me at Hello

  • And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. And the son said to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. But the father said to his servants, Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. Luke 15:20-22 ESV

    Jesus told a parable that became known as the prodigal son. It is about a son that got tired of waiting on his father to die and demanded his inheritance early. Then the son went and blew all the money on prostitutes and after he was broke, ended up working on a pig farm.

    When he came to his senses, he decided to go home and serve his father as a servant, because he was no longer worthy to be called his son. The father ran out to meet him, hugged him, and kissed him before the son even said a word. Then he placed the best robe, a ring and shoes on his son, and had a feast to celebrate. The father in the story was not interested in the sad story that the son had put together. It did not matter. His son was back home.

    When we fall we often act like this son and hang our head down, feeling that we are no longer worthy to be His child, no longer worthy to pray, or even attend church. We give up on the plans that God had for our life, but God will not allow that. You are His child and the moment you turn back to God, He comes to meet you with open arms. You do not have to do a lot of explaining. He is happy to have you back with Him again, will restore you completely as His child, and His plan for your life will resume.
