Don’t allow sin to keep you out of your Father’s presence. He loves you and is filled with compassion towards you.
Luke 15:20 “So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him.
Just because you messed up doesn’t mean your Father God has rejected you. In fact, He longs for you to come on home. He has the answers that you so desperately desire. I want you to know that He is not holding your trespasses against you.
Romans 4:8: Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him.” Yes, we can make choices in this life that affect us negatively, just as the prodigal son did. The prodigal didn’t have to suffer the negative consequences that he did, and I want you to notice, it wasn’t his father bringing the punishment. His Father was simply longing for him to return home. It’s when we are drawn away by our own deceitful desires that sin is conceived, which brings forth its own punishment.
James 1:13-15: When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when by his own evil desires he is lured away and enticed. Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
I want you to know that Your Father God is not punishing you, and in fact, He longs for you to return home so that He can fully restore you!
Luke 15:22-24: But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet. 23 And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, 24 for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began.
