The Prodigal Sons
As Jesus began to preach about the Kingdom of God, he attracted quite the crowd of social rejects, outcasts and sinners. The fact that Jesus hung-out and even befriended these people infuriated the religious elite of the day. In response to their anger, Jesus told one of the most scandalous stories of grace found in the entire bible. This parable, commonly known as the parable of the prodigal son, is actually a tale of two sons and a father. This week we’ll look at the younger son, and next week the older son. The father’s reaction to his rebellious younger son, is a window that allows us to see just how much God loves his children and how deep his grace really runs. This parable teaches us that we’ve never gone too far for God’s love to reach us. You can walk away from this parable understanding that you are the object of God’s relentless love. In Christ, we are sons, never slaves. That’s grace, and grace changes everything!
