Psalm 33:10; Isaiah 14:27; Jeremiah 15:6; Hosea 4:6; Romans 1:18-32; 8:5-8; Ephesians 2:1-2; Colossians 1:21
And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds
The story of the Prodigal Son reveals our rejection of God. It tells the story of a father who has two sons. The younger son decides that he wants his inheritance early, and when he gets it he takes it and runs away. He didn’t truly love his father, he only wanted the money that the father would leave to him. This parable reveals that even though we reject God, God is merciful and gracious to us.
Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
