It's God's kindness that leads to our repentance. He doesn't just relate to us as a distant judge. He's a Father.
When we come to the end of ourselves we may find ourselves in a place where we feel we are no longer worthy to be called sons or daughters of God. We feel that our actions have changed our identity.
You may be far off from God, but when you look at yourself honestly, and realize that you need to be back home with your Father, there’s good news. When you say I’m coming back, he’s going to see you from a great ways off. He’s going to run to you.
