The Rebel.....Now Your Child
"But when he came to himself, he said, 'How many of my father's hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants."' And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him." Luke 15:17-20 (ESV) THAT'S GRACE!! Because earlier in this same letter Luke writes "Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents." Luke 15:10 (ESV). To Him be the glory for giving us such a merciful salvation through His only Begotten Son...........Jesus Christ my Lord.
