Our text is about the parable of the lost son. The son wasn’t lost in the sense of location, but he was lost relative to his sense of family, his sense of responsibility, and his sense of salvation. The bible says in Luke 15:17 that when he came to his senses, he began to reflect on the position he had and the position he was in. Today let us reflect on the position we had and the position we’re in; let us reflect on the position in the Kingdom of God. In the beginning, God created man and gave man dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth. That’s the position we had. But the position that we’re in today is one of lack, lost, left out, left behind, stress, worry, frustration and hesitation, and struggle.
But the good news is that God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but shall have everlasting life. The good news is that God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we could ask or think. But in order for the commands and decrees of God to be effective in our lives we must be in the family. For that reason, if you’re in a place of isolation, desolation, or frustration, then it’s time to declare to God, I’m hurt, but I’m coming home.
