The Prodigal Father

20140215-112627.jpg

This famous Rembrandt and the following two passages have gained deeper meaning in my life since January 20.

I have been reconciled to my father after a 35 year hiatus. My dad is a new man. Truly, ours has become a story of forgiveness and reconciliation.

Luke 15:23-24 says,

“Bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found. And they began to celebrate”.

2 Corinthians 5:17-19 says,

“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person.

The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ.

And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him.

For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them.

And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.”

YES, OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED

BEHOLD ALL THINGS ARE NEW!

My immediate family and my extended family are meeting on the family farm today to celebrate and slay the fatted calf!

What a wonderful reunion it is sure to be!
