A Savior For You
Are you a happy person? Fear and the guilt of sin can take away your happiness. You may wonder, “How can I be happy?”
I have good news for you! There is someone who can help you. He can forgive your sins and give you lasting happiness. His name is Jesus. Let me tell you about Him.
His Father, God, is the One Who made the world. He made everything in the world. He made you and me.
God loves us. He loves everyone in the world. God loves us so much that He sent Jesus, His only Son, to this world. When Jesus was on this earth, He healed the sick and comforted the sad. He opened blinded eyes. He taught the people many things.
Jesus wanted us to understand the great love that His Father has for you and me. He told this story that explained the love of His Father. You can read this in the Bible in St. Luke 15:11-24.
A certain man had two sons. He thought all was going well. One day one of the sons rebelled and came to him and said, “I don’t like this home, I want my own way, and I am leaving. Give me my share of the inheritance.” The father was very sad but he gave him the money and let him go. He wondered if he would ever see his son again.
The son went far away and enjoyed himself with his money and his friends. He carelessly wasted his money in selfish living. He thought he was having a very good time until suddenly his money ran out and his friends left him. He was all alone and needy. Now what should he do?
He went to a farmer and the farmer sent him to feed the pigs. He was not given enough to eat. He was so hungry he would have eaten the pigs’ food. He started to think of all the bad things he had done and how he had mistreated his father. He became more and more miserable.
To be continued tomorrow.
