In the bible, the story of the prodigal son tells us that when the son finally returns home after squandering all the money that he had demanded as his inheritance from the father, not only did the father not blame him, but the father ran out to him when the father sees him from a distance.

That is really how it’s like for our heavenly Father too, He is constantly looking out and seeking us because we are ALREADY His. His possession and His chosen generation.

He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?Who shall bring any charge against God’s chosen ones? It is God who justifies.

He did not do this great work like a fisherman throwing a net to see whom might swim into it. We did not just happen to swim into God’s salvation. This was planned, and performed with a special view to us, the chosen ones. This is a wonder to revel in.
