Today we discover that Jesus is Everlasting Father. Fathers know their children and rescue them in times of need. Jesus is able to rescue us from sin and death, our greatest, and is in a hurry to forgive his children.
Today we will hear a story about two sons, one who obeyed, and one who did not. In Jesus’ story, the one who disobeyed tried to return home and finds that his father is not only waiting to forgive him, but is actually running toward his son to forgive him!
We also see that the obedient son is angry with his father for forgiving his brother. He too needed forgiveness. Whether we know it or not, all of us need our heavenly Father’s forgiveness of our sins.
Through this story Jesus shows His disciples and shows us that He is the Everlasting Father (He is God) who is hurrying to forgive His disobedient children, and that means all of us.
