Two sons, two rebellions, two confrontations. One father, one response: My door is always open. In this message, Dr. Stanley explores the love of God the Father through the parable of the prodigal son. All of us have sinned and fallen away from God in our own ways, but no matter where sin takes us, the path back home is always the same. And at the end is a Father, longing to embrace us. Discover just how tender God’s heart is toward you.
While the Prodigal Son partied in a distant land, his older brother toiled in the backyard. But don’t be fooled–turns out you don’t have to leave home to rebel. In this message, Dr. Stanley takes a closer look at the second half of the parable of the lost son, examining the self-righteous attitude of his older brother. Though he has the appearance of a devoted son, in reality the older brother’s heart is full of entitlement, bitterness, and jealousy. Don’t let self-righteousness poison your relationship with God or His children. Find the cure that releases you to join the celebration.
