The question is not whether Jesus is with me and for me. The question is whether I am with Him and for Him. How often do I ignore him by thinking and acting as if He is not with me? His love for me is constant for He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Lord, I return to You now, whispering Your name; falling into Your open arms.
Your love for me is manifest most surely in the number of times You’ve embraced me fully upon the return from my empty foreign excursions. Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. – yet You pay no attention and embrace me and celebrate that I am with you again. Your grace still amazes me.
Lk 15:21-22; Gen 28:15; Ro 8:31; He 13:8
