Luke 15:4-10 contains two parables explaining how much God loves us. Our faith is not meant to be built on our works or our own understanding, but rather on God’s relentless pursuit of us. We have a relationship with our Creator not because we sought Him out, but because He is always pursuing us. From the moment we were born, there has been no sin too great, no distance we could run that would discourage God from loving us. We cannot let our sin and failures get in the way of running to the open arms of our heavenly Father.
