Luke 11. The Lost Son
In spite of the fact that his father loved him. He had everything he needed available. Still he decided that he was better off without his father and responsibilities. He took his inheritance and left home. When all the money was spent he decided to return home and be one of his fathers servants. His father refused to accept him as a servant. He did however accept him as his son.
It was a big party. A party to celebrate the return of a son who was lost and then followed. The barbecue pit was fired up, a band hired and all the neighbor were invited. It was the party of the century. Pure celebration!
That is the love of a father. This is the love of our heavenly Father. I have people ask me all the time, “how could a loving God send someone to hell?” My answer: God has gone to every length, he has bent over backwards and given the very best he has to save us And keep us from hell. “For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son so that whoever believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life”
Give your life to God. He will fire up the barbecue for you.
