10 Principles that Lead Us Back to the Father
God planted the Gospel Story deeply in our hearts. We want problems fixed. We look for the hero. We desire forgiveness and mended relationships. When we don’t experience this in movies, books, or real life, we tend to feel a lack of closure because it is in our spiritual DNA to crave reconciliation. Especially in real life, we don’t like loose ends. When we study the Parable of the Prodigal Son, we see the Gospel Story—repentance and redemption…the path of peace.
We are born with a desire to live in reconciliation with God and with others. After all, we are made in His image: “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…So God created man in his own image in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them’ ” (Genesis 1:26-27 ESV).
When we delve deeper into the Gospel Story, we see that God’s plan is to renew our minds, to transform the way we think and live. His design is to redeem us AND our relationships. Immerse yourself in the age-old truths that bring relief to our broken world. The simple answers to living reconciled to God AND others are within your grasp. Prodigal Confessions: 10 Principles That Lead Us Back to the Father unveils the “new normal” available to those who belong to the Family of God.
