The younger son ... took his journey

Daily Light Devotions - June 10 - Morning

The younger son ... took his journey ...

Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took a journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in reckless living. 1

And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 2

among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.  But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us,  even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved--  and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,  3

In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  4

but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.  5
