The prodigal son thought of going home and he did – you also have a choice.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23.
We were all born with a sinful nature (very easy to lie, kill and steal). Christians were once prodigal sons and daughters who were lost in the depths of sin. It is always darkness when in sin. We enjoyed sinning but hated the consequences. We want to eat our cake and have it. Of our strength, we were powerless because we were in the mire of sin. It was not until the prodigal son was in the pig pen that he thought of going home. Where are you now? You have a choice, as for me, I am going home.
