Never so far away …

We are never so far away that God’s love cannot reach us.

In Luke 15, we read about the prodigal son – and the loving Father.

What does Jesus tell us about the prodigal son? He tells us about his sin – and he tells us about his salvation.

All the time, the son was away from home, the father never stopped loving him – and the father’s love triumphed over the son’s sin. The son was gone, but he was never forgotten.

“This, my son, was dead, and he is alive again; he was lost, and is found” (Luke 15:24).

Here, we have a wonderful picture of what our Saviour has done for us.

We were lost, and he has found us (Luke 19:10). We were dead, and he has given us new life (Ephesians 2:1)

When we give our testimony, may there be less about our sin, and more about our Saviour, We do not magnify our sin. We magnify our Saviour, We speak about before and after – before coming to Christ and after coming to him. Let the ‘after’ shine more rightly than the ‘before’!
