Marvelous grace of our loving Lord

Rembrandt’s “Return of the Prodigal”

"And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.” 
- The Gospel of Luke 15:20

Commenting on this verse about the return of the prodigal son, Norval Geldenhuys wrote-

"So inexplicably wonderful is the love of God that He not merely forgives the repentant sinner, but actually goes to meet him and embraces him in His love and grace."
