LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat share about a parable regarding the prodigal son found in Luke 15:11-32 and liken it to a prodigal church. God has called believers in Jesus to be nonconformist to the ways of the world. However, today some of the church is looking more and more like the world running after and doing things that should not be for God’s people. Just like the son in the parable came to his senses after he had squandered his inheritance so will many who once knew God will come to their senses. Coming to their senses meaning they have realized that they have first sinned against God and secondly they have sinned against others. Where before they were proud and arrogant but now as a result of coming to their senses and repentance they are just happy to have the chance to serve. It is important to realize that no matter how much sin someone has gotten into in their life God can and will forgive them in a second if they repent of their sins. You must be willing not to hold them in their sin and forgive them just like Jesus does. For they owe you nothing. Don’t be offended for isn’t it worth going through something for the prodigals to come home?
