Luke 15: 11-32
To the One:
1. God is and has given you .
Vs. 13—Not many days later, the younger son gathered together all he had and traveled to a distant country, where he squandered his estate in foolish living.
Vs. 14-15—After he had spent everything, a severe famine struck that country, and he had nothing. 15 Then he went to work for one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed pigs.
2. Good alone is not enough
Vs. 18-19—I’ll get up, go to my father, and say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight. 19 I’m no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired workers.
3. God’s alone you to God.
Vs. 20—So he got up and went to his father. But while the son was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion. He ran, threw his arms around his neck, and kissed him.
4. is required to receive grace.
To the Church:
1. God’s is for the who has gone astray.
2. We must protect our hearts from turning .
Vs. 29-30—But he replied to his father, ‘Look, I have been slaving many years for you, and I have never disobeyed your orders, yet you never gave me a goat so that I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours came, who has devoured your assets with prostitutes, you slaughtered the fattened calf for him.’
BIG TAKE AWAY
God will anyone who turns to Him and throw a in their honor!
Vs. 32—But we had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.
Colossians 2: 13-14—And when you were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, he made you alive with him and forgave us all our trespasses. 14 He erased the certificate of debt, with its obligations, that was against us and opposed to us, and has taken it away by nailing it to the cross.
