GRACE IN A FAR COUNTRY

'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.' - Luke 15 vs 13

Hello esteemed and dearly beloved in the LORD JESUS. The LORD's desire continually for the Church is that we all be brought into HIS Rest which HE already purchased for us, knowing that the terror in the world today is as a result of the absence of peace and restlessness in the souls of men. HE inspired this word in my heart, which I now share with you, and I pray that it will be a tremendous blessing to you and give you peace in your soul in JESUS NAME. AMEN.

Our above opening Bible Passage is the story of the "prodigal son" which is a well known story in the Christian community, and we see what he did, the Bible says that he took his journey into a far country. How far have you gone in sin? How far have you gone in the world? How much have you fallen? O, I used to love the LORD very much, oo I was in the Choir, but right now, I don't think I have a relationship with HIM anymore, for I have gone too far; is that you currently? Is that how far you've gone? The LORD is letting you know that there is sufficient Grace available for your total restoration and comfort in HIM;

'...But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound...' - Romans 5 vs 20 {KJV}

It says where sin abounded, Grace much more abound, letting us know that GOD's Grace is more than sufficient for us in our darkest state. - Selah. But to access this Grace, we must recognize to do this one thing the "prodigal son" did;

'I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee...' - Luke 15 vs 18 {KJV}

This is acknowledgement. We must make up our mind to fully acknowledge our weaknesses and sins before the LORD. Yes, HE is the LORD, HE knows all about us already, even before we were born, so there's no point hiding anything from HIM. See GOD's attitude;

'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.' - Luke 15 vs 20 {KJV}

You see that? The Father didn't even wait to listen to what he had to say, but HE reached out to HIM quickly in deep love. That was a revelation of the nature of GOD that the LORD JESUS unveiled to us with that parable, letting us know the depth and the height of the FATHER's Love towards unfaithful folks like you and I. GOD is more than ready to reach out to you and receive you in the warmth of HIS Arms. There's something acknowledging sins does to us - if the "prodigal son" had not made that decision to go acknowledge his fault before his Father, he wouldn't have realized how loving his Father was. It's at the point of Acknowledgement that we hear the voice of the Holy Spirit reminding us of how forgiven we are in CHRIST, and how much welcomed we are in the FATHER's sight. You see that? When he acknowledged, he experienced Grace; likewise acknowledge my friend and hear that precious voice assuring your heart of your Justified position in CHRIST. Remember, CHRIST is our righteousness; even the Prophet Jeremiah testified of it by the SPIRIT of GOD. - Jeremiah 33 vs 16

Even in a far country, there is abounding Grace.

GOD has Blessed you.
