Forgiving father whose 16-year-old ..

From the moment that we are born again of God's Spirit, we are God's sons. If we live in sin, in hog country, we must, by our own free will, get up and go back to the arms of God by confessing our broken fellowship to Him. At the moment you make up your mind to go back to His arms, the Father sees you coming from a great distance, and so often He never lets you finish your story. He interrupts you and says "Come on home and we will kill the fatted calf, and put a ring of authority on your finger, and sandals on your feet." That is the greatness and forgiveness of our Heavenly God and Father. This parable is one of the most beautiful illustrations in the Word of God in regards to God's love and forgiveness for His children.

If you look at the parable honestly, this son who stayed home lived in a manner that was more harmful than the son who went out and lived in hog country. The elder son had everything at his disposal, but he was resentful; he was bitter. That is why it should not be referred to as the parable of the prodigal son since both were prodigal. We have called this record in God's Word "The Parable of the Forgiving Father". It is a story of an all compassionate, all loving, all redeeming, gracious and forgiving father.

Surely we can see the great love of this father for his son. This is a great example of a loving and forgiving Father. The ring gave the son authority, and the sandals on his feet gave him the fellowship back in the family. There was not a servant who had a ring or sandals. The servant always goes without the authority of the ring and he also goes barefooted.

The Forgiving Father - The Tablet

His father never let him finish his sentence! The son had done all that rehearsing for nothing. He knew that his son had made an error and that his son was able to recognize that error. He didn't have to wait for his son to finish what he was going to say. He simply forgave him for what he did. This is the same thing that we need to do when we get out of fellowship with God. All we need to do is to recognize and confess that we have made an error and God forgives us. The book of I John is written to those who are walking on the Word. The subject of the first chapter is fellowship. Let's take a look at one most important verse.

Forgiving: A Father's Forgiveness

In our parable, we see that the son had quite a change of heart. He was now quite humble, wasn't he? He had plans to tell his father that he was not even worthy to be called his son. In fact, he would have been happy and blessed just to be made one of his father's hired servants. Remember way back in verse 12 when he spoke to his father right before he left home, he said: "give me". Now he is saying to his father in verse 19 "make me". The son has had quite a change of heart, wouldn't you say so? Although negative circumstances and situations are not sent by the true God and Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God can turn that negative situation around allowing you to learn an invaluable and permanent lesson.
