still on the prodigal son...

In the parable of the prodigal son, we are told that when he returned home, his father rejoiced and changed his clothing, he gave him a beautiful robe for his drab, stained and stinky attire.

that is exactly what our Father in heaven does for us, that is what he did for us on calvary.

Jesus took it all, and everyday till the day he returns to us he takes it all, all our shameful acts, all our vile and negativity, and he gives us who he is, he makes us worthy of him, by placing his glory upon us!!

we all fall down, make mistakes, run away from his wisdom to find our way...

we all fall down, But our Father is rooting for our rising up, our coming home.

There is no act too great for his Love or his Blood.


"But sin didn't and doesn't, have a chance in the competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace. When it is sin versus grace, GRACE wins hands down." ( The Message Bible)

keep surviving on grace.

There is no sin that is too great for the blood..I agree!
you know why? because the life is in the blood..
and whose life is so great that it can pay for all other lives on earth?....the life of JESUS!

Jesus and His blood gave rise to GRACE and it is by Grace that we live each day.

have a blessed week!.x
P.S- ur comment me smile!
