Sermon for August 12th, 2018
We are starting a new series called Prodigal God. We will be taking a look at a very familiar parable in scripture. Within the parable Jesus reveals God’s prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This series is based on a book called Prodigal God by Timothy Keller. Feel free to pick up the book and read it. This series will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.
Week 1: He Welcomes Sinners. We will be focusing on the first part of chapter 15. We need to recognize who is in the crowd as Jesus begins to speak. Tax collectors and sinners were all gathered around. The Pharisees grumble against Jesus saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”
Listen to the message today and be challenged by God’s Word.
