Bible Devotional / Bible Study The Parable of the Prodigal Son
Will God Forgive Me? A parable is a story, used to illustrate spiritual
truth. Jesus used them all the time. A familiar one is known as the parable of
the prodigal Son. It’s the story of a young man who leaves
home in hopes to experience life outside the responsibilities and care of his father. But as always with sin, the excitement is
short lived, and the costs are far more than anyone can afford. The experience for this son was no different. It’s at his lowest, where he is literally
covered in pig filth, that he realizes his mistake. So he determines to return to his father,
in hopes he will be accepted back. The beauty of the story is that while the
son turned his back on his father, the father never turned his back on his son. As the son neared home, his father runs out
to embrace him, and accepts him! He take away the filthy clothes and gives
him the best clean clothes he has! While there’s more to the story, that scene
of the son receiving new clothes is so powerful because it pictures God’s forgiveness! We see a parallel in the Old Testament where,
in a vision, Joshua is standing before God with filthy garments on. And like the prodigal son, God says, “Remove
the filthy garments from him.” And to him he said, “Behold, I have taken
your iniquity away from you, and I will clothe you with pure vestments.” In both of those passages, it didn’t matter
how the garments got stained. It didn’t matter what types of stains they
had. In both passages, the key was going to God. So if you struggle with the question, “will
God forgive me for my past sin,” the answer is, yes. When you place our faith in Jesus Christ, there is
no sin stain that God can’t take away. That’s today’s Bible Munch. If this devotional was encouraging, please
