“Home” Luke 15 Pastor Carmen

This Independence Day weekend, we will look at the story of two brothers… both of whom were more interested in the inheritance of the father more than a relationship with him. Maybe you identify with the prodigal… the one who wandered off, the one who made bad choices, the one who knows he screwed up, the one who is filled with regret. Or maybe you identify with the older brother… the one who always stayed home, always tried to keep your nose clean, the one who always took care of the family obligations, and yet somehow feel like you’re getting the short end of the stick. The interesting thing is that whichever brother we identify with, the problem is the same… both are far away from the heart of the father. Both are lacking an intimate, loving relationship with him. And both are invited home.
