To those of you who were there last Sunday evening, thank you for your responsiveness in the discussions! We learned much together as we reflected on the actions of each of the 3 characters in the story (younger son, father, older son) and then later as we contemplated Rembrandt's interpretation of the story in his painting. What else do we learn about the Father heart of God and about Jesus through this story?! We'd love to hear your thoughts

What a great discussion we had Sunday evening discussing the Prodigal Son story in Luke 15. I keep thinking of the pleading words of the Father to the older son, “My son, the father said, you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad because this brother of yours was lost and is found. . . “ Those who belong to Jesus have “every spiritual blessing in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3). Even so, I know how easy it is to live as if we are NOT loved by the Father, as if we have no inheritance in Christ. Lord, don’t let me live as like a slave with you; let me live as one of your children in Christ.
