Tale of Two Sons: Part 2

Message 2 of 2

JP takes us through Luke 15:25-32, to remind us whose we are and the relationship that God desires us to have. JP compares the older brother from The Parable of the Prodigal's Son to most of us as a critical churchgoer. We learn how a critical churchgoer is apprehensive, angry, bitter, lonely, ungrateful, and doesn't understand grace. Also, a critical churchgoer seeks a slave/master relationship and not a father/child relationship. But, God doesn't pay wages. He has set up an eternal inheritance for us as His sons & daughters. As critics we get lost in this world and can't see all of God's goodness. But, the Father loves the critical churchgoer. He has compassion towards us and He celebrates repentance.

Scripture References: Luke 15:25-32 , Galatians 4
