The Parable of the Prodigal Son
When the Prodigal Son finally “came to his senses,” he realized he would be better off back home as a hired worker rather than stealing slop from the pigs. A journey began from being lost to being found, from being “dead” to being a new creation. Sometimes it is an outer journey; it is always an inner one. Jesus, walk with us. Help us come to our senses, confess our sins and ask for forgiveness so that we can arrive at the celebration where our heavenly Father embraces us, welcoming us home.
What does it mean to you to be a “new creation”?
