Lifehouse : I love my family!

Ephesians 1:5 NLT
[5] God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
以弗所書 1章5節 (CUV)

Luke 15:20-24 TPT
[20] "So the young son set off for home. From a long distance away, his father saw him coming, dressed as a beggar, and great compassion swelled up in his heart for his son who was returning home. So the father raced out to meet him. He swept him up in his arms, hugged him dearly, and kissed him over and over with tender love. [21] "Then the son said, 'Father, I was wrong. I have sinned against you. I could never deserve to be called your son. Just let me be-' "The father interrupted and said, 'Son, you're home now!' [22] "Turning to his servants, the father said, 'Quick, bring me the best robe, my very own robe, and I will place it on his shoulders. Bring the ring, the seal of sonship, and I will put it on his finger. And bring out the best shoes you can find for my son. [23] Let's prepare a great feast and celebrate. [24] For this beloved son of mine was once dead, but now he's alive again. Once he was lost, but now he is found!' And everyone celebrated with overflowing joy.

路加福音 15章20-24節 (CUV)
20 於是起來往他父親那裡去。相離還遠,他父親看見,就動了慈心,跑去抱著他的頸項,連連與他親嘴。21 兒子說,父親,我得罪了天,又得罪了你,從今以後,我不配稱為你的兒子。
22 父親卻吩咐僕人說,把那上好的袍子快拿出來給他穿。把戒指戴在他指頭上。23 把鞋穿在他腳上。把那肥牛犢牽來宰了,我們可以吃喝快樂。24 因為我這個兒子,是死而復活,失而又得的。他們就快樂起來。
