Sermon for August 19th, 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 2: The Younger Brother. The younger brother is often known as the prodigal son. He wants his inheritance, before his father is even dead. He takes the money and goes wild. He is reckless with everything he has been given. He has a ton of friends until the money runs out. It is at the bottom that he knows it isn’t right. It is often through pain and trial that we realize that we need our Father, God.
Listen to the message today and be challenged by God’s Word.
