Today @ School CF (Christian Fellowship)

Today Richard Lee Mun Chun (a form 5 CF's great leader) shared about God's forgiveness. When we r going through difficult times or when we r back sliding, we should always ask God to help us and turn back to him.

In "The Parable of the Lost Sheep" (Luke 15:1-7), when the guy who lost his sheep founds his sheep, he calls his friends and neighbours together and says, "rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep." And Jesus says, "I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent." And Jesus says the same thing in "The Parable of the Lost Coin" (Luke 15:8-10).

Richard also shared about "The Parable of the Lost Son" (Luke 15:11-31). There's a man who had two sons. The younger son ask his father for his share of the estate and he waste all the money. And he had to work in a pig's farm. He saw the pigs had food to eat and no one gave him anything. When he came to his senses that his father's workers have food to spare, he went back to his father expecting his father would be angry and he wish that he can be one of his father's workers. But when the father saw him, he said, "Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let's have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found."

God is like the father in the parable. Even when we turn away from Him, He always welcomes us to go back.
