Title: Lost & Found
Date: June 19,2016
It’s inevitable in life to get lost at times, but the good news is as simple as this. That which is lost, is about to be found. You’ve got a good good Father, full of love, mercy and grace, who is chasing you down and ready to wrap His arms around you.
Jesus uses parables to show us the nature of the Father’s heart in going after whoever is lost. The parable of the prodigal son reveals out-of-the-box fathering! The son who left found himself in the pig pen, but he knew he could return to his father’s house where there was plenty. The father broke with tradition to run out to meet his son, protecting him from others and restoring him to honor. You may feel lost, but Jesus wants you to be found!
