Kissed by Unconditional Love

When the prodigal son came home, his father had compassion on him. He ran toward his son and kept running until they embraced.

God the Father will run after anyone who will come home. I don't care what you've done or how bad it is; if you will just say, "I'm going to my Father; I've sinned against heaven," then the Father will run to you and kiss you with His unconditional love. When the prodigal came to his father, he said, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and in thy sight." But the father interrupted his confession and wouldn't let him continue. The debt for his sins was already paid.

The young man came home as a prodigal-broken and contrite. He came home to be as a hired servant. But the father ran, fell on his neck, and kept kissing him.

Picture the father kissing his son's neck over and over. Can you imagine how the son felt? Perhaps he thought, "There is no condemnation. No guilt! All I have to do is receive my father's love." The father said, "Get the ring. Get the robe. Get the fatted calf. We're going to have a party! My son was lost, but now he is found."

Don't ever misunderstand your heavenly Father's heart.
