Luke 15 has three parables in it – parable of the lost sheep, lost coin and the lost son. Each speaks of how something precious was lost for a little while and the joy that followed in finding them again.
We too were once lost, but Jesus found us and saved us and gave us new life. How precious we are to Him can be seen in these verses. If anyone reading this has somehow strayed away from Him and if your life feels meaningless, look to the lost son in the parable (verse 11-32). He went away and got lost in the pleasures of the world but he realised his mistake and came back (verse 18-19). Instead of being angry and showing any form of hatred, the father welcomed him with open arms (verse 20).
Our Father too is compassionate toward His children and ready to welcome you with open arms if only you will turn back to Him. Don’t wait for another day for it’s not ours. Do it today and enjoy the peace which only He can give you.
