“I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.”
-The parable of the lost coin, lost sheep & the prodigal son, highlight the importance of repentance to the kingdom of God. In the parable of the prodigal son, the younger son got lost in pleasures of the world but he came back to his senses & God delivered him. In contrast, the older son remained faithful to his father as he never transgressed any of his commandments. The younger son thus needed repentance which triggered a celebration on earth & in heaven among the angels. It is important therefore to always ask for Gods’ mercy in repentance & change ones mind in the mission to follow Jesus without turning back.
Jesus we love, we praise You & lift Your name high. Many times we have gone astray & have fallen short of Your glory Lord, have mercy on us we humbly ask You & cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Renew our minds & convert us that our characters may reflect You Lord & strengthen us so that we may never turn back like Lots wife who looked back & became a pillars of salt. Remember Jesus our brothers & sisters who do not recognize You as God, have mercy on them all & bring them into Your kingdom. Remember also Father all those who are studying, those who are working & the retired that Your will may be done in each one of our lives. Give us good health, peace of mind & long lives full of joy Jesus. Amen
