Every Sinner Has A Future

Luke 15:11 – 32

11

KJV:And he said, A certain man had two sons:

12

KJV:And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.

13

KJV:And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

14

KJV:And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.

15

KJV:And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

16

KJV:And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

17

KJV:And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

18

KJV:I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

19

KJV:And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

20

KJV:And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

21

KJV:And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

22

KJV:But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

23

KJV:And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:

24

KJV:For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

25

KJV:Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.

26

KJV:And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.

27

KJV:And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.

28

KJV:And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.

29

KJV:And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:

30

KJV:But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.

31

KJV:And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.

32

KJV:It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

This is a story that every Christian knows: The story of the prodigal son.
Like my friend would always tell me, every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future. No matter how dark and ugly you think your past is; no matter how dirty you think your linen is, God is ever ready to make you a new being and ever humble to wash your dirty linen. If you let him.

A portion of the Bible I enjoy reading is this:

10:Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

11:Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12:Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Psalm 51:10 – 12.

God loves you. Remain blessed. ♥

  1. Indeed every sinner has a future and every saint have a past.
    The past of a saint is a bad past and the future of the sinner is a good future filled with redemption. Our past does not determine our future. Each sinner has the chance to change, repent and walk in the path of righteousness/virtue.
    No one is born into sainthood. Sainthood is what we should strive to be in the end. We should separate ourselves from sin and separate ourselves to God. One main message gotten from the prodigal son is the picture of the Heavenly Father toward undeserving sinners. If we can confess our sins he is ready and just to forgive us.
