“But when he came to himself”… Luke 15:17.
Jesus tells us of a young man who left his father with his share of the wealth. He came to his senses when nothing was left in his hands and was all by himself. At this point he came to his senses and repented of his life. He returns to his father’s house who was ready to forgive the past. The young man’s father did not even want to listen to what he had to say.
Isaiah 1:18 says, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” The precious blood of Jesus Christ cleans us of all our sins.
We have a heavenly Father who is ready to forgive all our sins if we repent. He simply loves you and His love is unconditional. Matthew 3:2 tell us, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Again we read in Luke 15:7, “I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.” I have always felt sad over the people who leave this world without accepting Jesus Christ as their personal savior. We read about the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16:19. The rich man while in hell requests Abraham to sent one from the dead so that his five brothers can repent. He never thought of repentance until he ended up in hell. Let not that happen to us.
If anyone of you who is heavily laden or burdened with your sins, come to Jesus Christ who is waiting for you. He is ready to forgive you and from today onwards you are His precious child.
1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
