To the rebellious heart.
If you haven't noticed, I'm kind of in a video sharing frenzy right now (if you call two videos a frenzy.. I digress). The first time I heard this song, my heart broke. I love the story of the prodigal son, and the fact that Sovereign Grace Music beautifully depicted this story through music and actionJones depicted this story through pictures brings me to tears every time. We are prone to wander because we feel that our way is the best. We go our own way and fall because we are not perfect. No matter how hard we try to keep ourselves from falling, we find ourselves on the ground. Failure is inevitable without Christ, BUT God loves us and will not leave us to fall away into nothing. He holds out His arms for us to come back to Him. He celebrates when His child who was once lost is now found; we were dead, but now we find life in His arms.*
Calm your heart, rebel. Find security in the foundation that is firm: Jesus Christ. Look to the cross and see how much He loves you.
