Brother can you hear me?
I have been defeated
I followed my desires
And they dressed me in chains

 

Brother I regret it
Finally I get it
Now I’ve reached the bottom
Of the well, and it’s hell

 

Cause all I want
Is to be home right now
With you and Dad, the life that we had
Is it beyond me now?
Is there some way somehow?
Across the dark sea, to where I should be
Back home

 

I have spent the money
Given to protect me
From sinners and from sirens
I embraced my disgrace

 

Pride is no companion
As I falter homeward
An undeserving stranger
but maybe a slave
Enough to be saved

 

Cause all I want
Is to be home right now
With you and Dad, the life that we had
Is it beyond me now?
Is there some way somehow?
Across the dark sea, to where I should be
Back home

 

And if God is holy and his ways are just
Then what should we expect when we are nothing but dust?

 

Cause all I want
Is to be home right now
With you and Dad, the life that we had
Is it beyond me now?
Is there some way somehow?
Now I long to go, how long is the road
Back home?

 

I can see a dust cloud
Rising in the distance
Somebody is running
Somebody is running

Our natural condition finds us wanting to distance ourselves from God. We can not trust Him. We refuse to believe that He either knows, or intends, what is best for us. Or perhaps we believe His resources are limited. The younger “prodigal” son in this parable of Jesus takes his inheritance and chooses his own path, and soon runs dry, failing catastrophically.

 

Repentance comes when the Holy Spirit allows us to look soberly at our lives and see how much of a mess we have made, and how desperately we need to be reunited with our heavenly father, who made us for Himself. For the prodigal, to “come to himself” as Jesus put it, was not a noble impulse, but an act of desperation. Nor, if we come to our senses, is this something for which we should be praised, or by which we should think we earn our right to be accepted by God. We must not think like the older brother in Jesus’ story.

 

In this parable, though, how wonderful it is to see a God whose heart overflows to those who are wretched – how he runs to make up the distance between those who have turned their back on their sin, and their faces towards their heavenly father.
