THE PARABLE OF THE PRODIGAL SON
Luke 15: 11-32
by Bro. Rolan Vergara
This parable is an illustration of a son who rebels against his father or a christian who backslidden and thinks they do not need God. For all have sinned and fall short to the glory of God. And when we come to our senses like the prodigal son and recognized that we have sinned against God and confessed our sins God is faithful enough to forgive us of our sins and more than happy to receive us with forgiveness, love , compassion, grace and the full rights of children.
Let us remember that the body of Christ is the only place where sinners will find their second chance so let us not deprived them off all the gracious opportunity by being judgmental of them.
Instead we have to receive those who come to the church family with great joy because we can not forget the fact that we are also sinners saved by grace and the fact we owe our righteousness and salvation to the Lord who loved us and died for us.
