The son in the parable said: I will get up and go to my father... (CEB) Luke 15:18a
We long to be made clean and right with God.PRAYER:
Lord, thank you for so quickly welcoming wandering sinners like me. It's always unsettling to acknowledge that I have let you down and need forgiveness, but at the same time it is like coming home -- safe and comfortable. Help me so that this is more than a ritual. I really do want to turn from everything wrong and toward you and all that is right. I want to enjoy the sense of being with you and being clean. I know that it is so through the work of Christ Jesus my Savior. Amen.
