God will forgive and restore you

Posted by Al Hathaway Wednesday, January 13, 2016

"Father, I have sinned."    Luke 15:18 NIV

Sin is essentially missing the mark. As a result we miss the mark all the time. That is what makes us sinners. Scripture reminds us, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3: 23

Without the merciful grace of God we would all be condemned to eternal damnation.

Jesus' sacrifice for our sins gives us another chance. As a result if we humble ourselves and seek Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, God forgives and restores us because of Jesus' advocacy for us.

The text demonstrates, God as the Father's and His willingness to forgive and restore. The triune nature of God helps us to understand, because Jesus is telling the story, it is only because of the sacrifice of Jesus on our behalf that the story can end as it does - with forgiveness and restoration.

Our challenge is to go and sin no more!
