Luke 15:20-22 (KJV)
20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
Lord, it is my prayer that more people make a decision today to follow You. To stop living their own lives an instead, repent of their sins. I know that You are waiting for us all to just take You by the hand and then You will do the rest. We don't have to wonder throughout life, trying to find the right way, for You are ready to guide and direct us on the right path now. Unfortunately, our flesh gets in the way and people start thinking that their self-gratification is more important to them then your salvation. This is very sad to see people risk their own lives, just for temporary pleasure in different things. Truly, they are on the verge of either escaping their life of sin, or are getting themselves further trapped in it. So I pray that they will be rescued before time is up. It would very hard to see people that I know and love go to hell, when their decision to repent and come unto You was always in the back of their minds. I know that sin can do terrible things in our lives. It can ruin the relationship we once had with You. Thank You for showing me this, so that I could repent. I would never want to lose out on Your eternal presence in my life now and the next. What I have learned is that Your blessings are more important to me, then whatever the world or the flesh can offer me. I can be poor, but still be rich in You, God. All I need is Your presence and I have the greatest joy of all. Nothing Satan can offer me can ever replace Your great love. All I want is more of You and less of me. Take my heart, Lord, and use me for Your greater good. I wish to be Your servant, that many lives will also see Your love through me. Light up my life, oh Lord. Give me strength to carry on. Lead me away from temptation. Build me up with Your armor. I trust in You. I love You. Amen.
No earthly pleasure is worth more than the love that Jesus can offer us. Come unto Him and He will forgive you of your sins.
Earlier, I mentioned a portion of the story of the prodigal son. This is because we are all like him at one time in our lives. Continue Reading
