Jesus chages lives: The Prodigal Son
God is ready to forgive
We are all sinners (Rom 3:23). God invites us to return to Him today.
God accepts us as we are
God welcome us with open arms, no matter how dirty and stinky we are! It’s not what we have done (ie how much good we can do), it is about what Jesus has done.
God rejects all self-righteousness
Jesus came to save the lost not the self-righteous. Jesus is the ‘friend of sinners’.
God loves to celebrate
God celebrates when we return to Him (Luke 15:7).
