God's Promise to Prodigals (2)
Tuesday, 02 June 2015
'...my son was...lost and is found. And they began to be
merry.' Luke 15:24 NKJV
Observe what the father did for his prodigal son the
moment he humbled himself and said, ‘…I have
sinned…’ (Luke 15:18 NKJV), because God will do the
same for you.
(1) ‘…the father said to his servants, “Bring out the best
robe and put it on him…”’ (Luke 15:22 NKJV) Can you
imagine what this boy smelled like and looked like, after
wallowing in the muck of a pig– sty? Can you identify with
him? Good news: God covers our sinfulness in the robe of
Christ’s right-eousness. And from that point on He sees
us ‘in Christ’. Therefore we are always acceptable in His
eyes.
(2) ‘…put a ring on his hand…’ (Luke 15:22 NKJV) This
was the family signet ring used in transacting business.
When placed on wax, it was equal to a signature. More
good news: God doesn’t partially restore you, He
recommissions you and gives you back full authority to do
business in His name.
(3) ‘…put…sandals on his feet.’ (Luke 15:22 NKJV) The
prodigal son was getting ready to say to his father, ‘…I am
no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one
of your hired servants.’ (Luke 15:19 NKJV) In those days
hired servants didn’t wear shoes in public; only sons did.
How wonderful—his father gave him the full rights of
sonship.
(4) ‘…bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat
and be merry.’ (Luke 15:23 NKJV) You don’t fatten a calf
overnight! The father had been planning this celebration
for a long time. He never gave up on his son and the word
for you today is: God hasn’t given up on you either! Come
back to Him and let Him restore you.
