But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found. (Luke 15:32)
I never get tired of seeing this video.
Everything, performed by Lifehouse Productions, tells the story of a young woman lovingly created by God. She and God enjoy a close relationship until she is lured away from Him by counterfeit love, greed, and alcohol. Finding no satisfaction in those things, the young woman determines that she is worthless. She abuses herself and sinks into depression. On the verge of suicide, the young woman remembers the loving God who created her and decides to fight to rekindle their close relationship.
The video shows how quickly we can be overtaken by the trials of life. However, it also reminds us that no matter how many issues we face and no matter how deeply we’re weighed down by our sins, it is possible for us overcome them because of Jesus’ death on the cross. When we accept Him as our personal Savior, we gain the greatest friend and advocate we could ever know. He is waiting to rescue us from our sins if we choose to embrace Him!
