Day 2: Welcome Home


He couldn't believe it.

He followed all the rules,

but now the other "he" was getting showered upon with a celebration.

The one who did it all wrong.

The one who followed his own path

The one who left home.

The one who had the guts to leave his father

with his part of the inheritance,

even while the father was still alive.

And now "he" comes home

and gets treated with such

GRACE.

"But what about me?" thinks the older brother.

The one who was home with his father.

Maybe just maybe he was living with CONDITIONS.

With ENTITLEMENT

With EXPECTATIONS.

Maybe just maybe the older brother's heart

was more lost than his PRODIGAL brother.

Oh how JESUS leaves the 99 to

pursue the one lost sheep.

But what about the 99

who are following JESUS~

are they forgotten?

Or are they

FORGIVEN, FAVORED, and FREE

to live in HIS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

because they are

ACCEPTED

SECURE

&

SIGNIFICANT.

"It is finished" are just not words said on a cross

as they are

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

that finishes it all,

because when GOD covers you with HIS GRACE

you have a celebration

every second of every day

because HE SEES you

. HE HEARS you

HE LOVES you.

"Get over yourself" are the words I feel GOD would

love to say to the older brother

as HE says them to me

when I forget

WHOSE I am

&

WHO I follow.

My choice. Your choice. Everyone's choice.

To be one of the 99

who lives covered with

UNCONDITIONAL GRACE.

because

JESUS left the 99 to pursue the one

to bring

you & me & everyone else

back home

where we always belong

with our

"FATHER" (listen to the song below)
