The Daily Scroll – Come Back!

A father desperately searches for his young son. They always had a great relationship until lately when his teenaged son started running with the wrong crowd. Late at night he drives the town looking for him to no avail. When one night as he crosses the railroad tracks he sees a silhouette walking slowly in the distant foggy night. He leaps from his car, yells the boys’ name and says, “Come back! Son. Come back.” The boy stopped and slowly turns to his dad and says, “Why? Why do you want me back?” 

His father rushes to him and without a word, puts his arms around him, lifting him up with a-hug, and said, “Yes Son, always.” He replies, “ I’m sorry dad. Let’s go.”

The Bible tells the familiar story of the prodigal son, and how in spite of everything, the  father welcomes him home with open arms. Friends, Father God sent Jesus to die to get us back. What else does He have to do to prove His love for you? He just wants you to come back. Forget the past. Theres no future in the past. Come back. He’s waiting for you with open arms.

“We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” (2 Corinthians 5:20-21)
