The Prodigal Who Came Home (Prodigals)

November 11, 2018

Many families have prodigal sons or daughters who’ve left home in rebellion against their parents’ values. The heartache is acute as moms and dads wonder where their children are and if they’re safe. There was one prodigal son who came home in disgrace only to find himself treated like royalty. The Gospel of Luke records the story, and it is a message of hope for all those who have children in the far country.

Our broken world is made up of broken families—families with broken marriages and families with “prodigals.” These are sons and daughters who have left home for a far country where they can do what they like, leaving their parents and God behind them. These “prodigals” desperately need to come home, but sadly, not all do.

One book in the Bible promises a blessing to all who read it—the Book of Revelation. Rich in symbolism, it portrays the future yet to be: the glorious return of Jesus, the resurrection of the dead, the judgment of God, the Millennial reign, and finally, the eternity which follows.

In the drama of redemption, the Old Testament is a grand prologue to the great transaction that takes place in the New. God’s sacrifice for the sins of the whole world was offered on a cross outside Jerusalem. No playwright could dream of a story so bold, so loving, and so wonderful.

The Old Testament is filled with prophecy, history, law, and wisdom literature. All of these fit together to give us a big-picture view of God’s work in world history. In this message, we’ll focus on the time when Israel was taken into captivity and its temple destroyed.

Imagine Earth as a grand stage where a great drama is being played out—a real drama. It began long ago when mankind sinned and was separated from our Creator. God had set in motion a plan to redeem those who believe in the value of a great sacrifice: that of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Very few people have an easy road through life. Most of us will face trials we never expected. When calamities come, our normal resources are not enough to sustain us. Can God be trusted to see us through life’s tough times? Yes! And often, it’s only after the storm passes that we can see God’s hand in the trials we’ve been called to endure.

Life for many of us is hard. The pressures are numerous: physical, economic, relational, and spiritual, and sometimes we begin to doubt that God cares for us. But we are not promised an easy life. Jesus looked to His Father as He walked a road of suffering. We also must learn to rely on God for sustaining grace through times of trial and deprivation.

The judgment of God may be long in coming, but it comes with vengeance. For ancient Babylon, that time came when Daniel foretold the doom of the king, interpreting the handwriting on the wall. We in America should take heed, as Babylon’s story might also be ours.

Every day, government and societal pressure mounts on the Christian faith. How should believers react? For guidance, we can look to a similar time of strife long ago. The place was Babylon, and the minority Jews were in the midst of a hostile culture.
September 9, 2018
In America, Christians are rapidly becoming like Daniel and his friends in Babylon: out of sync with their pagan environment. How do we reconcile what we believe with what we have to do to live in our culture? What should we do when facing conflicts of conscience?
