  • Hitting Rock Bottom: The Younger Brother

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Oct 20, 2010
    based on 1 rating

    The prodigal succumbed to temptations all of us face: money, sex and power. He survived because he stopped denying his reality and received the grace of the father.

    Takoma Park Baptist Church, Washington, DC June 26, 1988 It is frequently said about alcoholics that they have to hit rock bottom before they can be helped. The usual understanding is that because of the nature of the disease, the behavior called alcoholism, the person who suffers as a more

  • The Parable Of The Good Father

    Contributed by Thomas Donelan on Aug 4, 2010
    based on 3 ratings

    Today we will look at a familiar passage of scripture commonly called the parable of the prodigal son but I feel a fitting title would be the parable of the good father. We see the selfishness of the two sons set off against the love of the good father.

    Introduction Today we will be studying a fairly familar passage of scripture, familar to most of us as the parable of the prodigal son but most aptly called in my opinion the parable of the good father. Luke 15:11-12 And he said, A certain man had two sons: 12 And the younger of them said to more

  • Home Sweet Home

    Contributed by Gregory Mc Donald on Feb 10, 2010
    based on 8 ratings

    This morning I want to look at the story of a young man who discovered the truth of the familiar quote, "There's no place like home." It's the familiar story of the prodigal son...but maybe from a different angle than you've heard it before.

    HOME SWEET HOME LUKE 15:11 24 There is an old song that is still popular that says, "There's no place like home for the holidays..." With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner our thoughts often turn toward home. For me, there are so many great memories of the times my family more

  • To The Distant Country And Back

    Contributed by Michael Trask on Mar 20, 2007
    based on 1 rating

    The Prodigal went to "a distant country". "The Distant Country" is not a foriegn state, but rather a sinful state of mind....that leads to ruin. But there is a way back.

    “There was a man who had two sons. the younger one said to his father, ‘father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them. Not long after that, the younger Son got together all he had, set off for a distant country....” The “distant Country”. The young more

  • Welcome Home

    Contributed by Ray Ellis on Oct 18, 2006
    based on 3 ratings

    Jesus told three parables about lost sheep, a lost coin and a lost son. The stories highlight the truth that missing people matter to God. God places tremendous value on every individual. All heaven rejoices when one person repents and turns to God.

    “Welcome Home” Luke 15:11-27 Those of you who have had or currently have sons can closely identify with the story Jesus told about a rebellious son. The rebellious son was the teenager and the other son was obedient and probably in his twenties. In Luke chapter 15 Luke records that Jesus more
