The Father ran and kissed him

Luke 15:20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

The son had gone off into wicked sin. He had wasted his life and all that he had. Now he is heading back home hoping to be forgiven. He is sure that his father will not fully accept him but is willing to ask to be treated like a servant.

All the way home he practices what he will say. As soon as he sees his dad he starts into his confession but the Father isn’t really listening or paying attention. The verse starts up, But and then the Father is calling for a party and a way to honor his son.

What a picture of our God and how He loves us. He loves you. He wants you to come back. He has already assumed your sin debt and put it on His account. Come to Him today.
