This week we were looking at what it means to be part of God's family. Jesus said that those who believe in him to save them are his family. This is a wonderful truth because being part of God's family means we have some great rewards. We have a new identity, as we realise that we are known and loved by God. We have a new confidence because we know that God has promised to provide for us. We can have a new purpose because God has a plan for our life. We then looked at the story of The Lost Son in Luke 15, and there is a challenge to all of us; will we come to God and at what point? Do you feel like you're in the pig sty and need to return home to God? Or are you already nearing your Father and just waiting to feel the hug? Keep asking God to draw close to you because he will change your life.
