Jeremiah 31:31-34; Ezekiel 11:19-20; 36:22-28; Romans 5:1-3; 6:17-18; 2 Corinthians 5:18-21; Ephesians 2:1-6; Colossians 1:19-23
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
The parable of the Prodigal Son is an illustration of man and God. We are the wayward son, our hearts full of sin seeking our own way instead of our Father’s way, which is best. God is the good Father who receives His wayward, sinful child back when he returns with repentance. God fixes our broken relationship with Him by making a way for our forgiveness.
Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
