CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Get to Know the Taste of Love (pulled from a MS devotion)
God, seeing what was happening on Earth, sends, as an act of love, His Son on a rescue mission to stop further deformation and to renew our likeness to God. Jesus Christ came to Earth to save people, to show us God’s love, and to show us how we should live to please God. He presents us our destiny and shows how this destiny will be fulfilled.
Christ came to this world because the Father wanted to be reconciled with humanity. God the Father wanted to fix the relationship we have with Him. He gave us the example of love. He wants us to trust Him and come to Him with no fear or dread.
The passage from the Gospel of Luke shows the picture of God that is dearest to me. This story shows God who is not a heartless judge, but a loving father. He is the Father that can feel sadness, joy, and who can be deeply moved. I can imagine how happy the father in this story was when he finally met his younger son! He was full of emotions! Before this meeting, the father was probably worried sick. He was wondering what was going on with his son. There were no mobile phones, so the son couldn’t call or text: “Hi dad! I’m in Jerusalem. Things are going great.” There was no Facebook or messenger (I know it’s hard to believe). There were no highways that could be used to travel quickly and visit your family. However, there was continuing uncertainty. That is why, when the father saw the son (even though the son looked nothing like the kid he used to be), he was delirious with joy! The moment he saw his son, he didn’t wait for his son to come to him. Instead, he ran toward the son and embraced him. The son, probably with tears in his eyes said: “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.” And what does the father do? He gives him presents! He doesn’t reproach his son; he is just happy that his son is safe. He accepts him back and forgets everything that has happened.
It’s exactly the same with you! It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, it doesn’t matter how dirty you feel. God loves you! You have the gift of God’s love. Do you know it?
I believe the cone were too clustered when you do 60 Merkins in 20yds. Dry docks were not fun either.
