We all need to come to God in repentance, so we are all, essentially, the prodigal son. It’s such an amazing story of God’s love for us. (Luke 15:11-32) Even in our stubborn rebellion, He loves us. When we turn our back on Him, and we still do that as believers when we fail to turn to Him first, He still watches for us to come back. Then He runs to meet us and throw His arms around us.
Now, put yourself in the prodigal’s shoes. The Father puts sandals on your feet, a robe on your back, and a ring on your finger. He kills the fatted calf to celebrate you. Can you feel the immense love that comes from that?
There is nothing that you can do that will stop God from loving you. Murderers on death row are deeply loved by God. He is just waiting for them to repent. Any idea that God cannot forgive you is a lie from the enemy. Forgiveness is a prayer away.
Ask God to show you how much He loves you. He can communicate it in a way that will be personal to you. Once you get a glimpse of that love, it will change your life.
