  • Jesus, Not Much Of A Businessman Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Nov 2, 2013

    The most important thing is to save the sheep.

    Thursday of the 31st Week in Course Lumen Fidei Jesus would have made a very poor businessman. Business owners must think in terms of profit and loss. It is true that they have to treat their employees and customers humanely, or they’ll lose both. That’s a matter of good more

    Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Course 2013 Sinners Forgiving Sinners Of all the parables of Jesus, this one of St. Luke’s is the favorite among God’s people, because we are a Church of prodigals, an assembly of sinners redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ. It is His Precious Blood and more

    HoHum: When D.L. Moody was directing his Sunday School in Chicago, one boy walked several miles to attend; and somebody asked him, “Why don’t you go to a Sunday School closer to home?” His reply might have been used by the publicans and sinners in Jesus’ day: more

    Luke 15:1-32 "Join the Party" Before Cody Huff joined a Church in Las Vegas, he was sleeping in an open field next to the church. One day, some people from the church were handing out sandwiches where Cody slept, and they told him he could get a shower in the Church building. The more

  • Only When Connected To Our Lord Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Nov 4, 2018

    In a real sense, St. Paul was the sheep that was lost, and Jesus left the heavens to seek him out and find him and turn him toward the truth.

    Thursday of 31st Week in Course At some point in the life of every Catholic theologian, like Saint Paul there comes a time of high clarity. St. Paul’s moment was a time when he realized that all his elevated Jewish theology was just a waste of time. In fact, in the light of Christ’s suffering and more

  • The God Who Runs

    Contributed by Martin Ellgar on Dec 6, 2014

    A perspective on Luke 15: 1-3, 11b-32. The loving father does he wait for a lengthy and rehearsed apology from his returning son. He sees him coming in the distance and with joy runs out to greet him. In this way he brings honour again to his son.

    Luke 15: 1-3, 11b-32 The God Who Runs God loves to have a party. He has been known to host the best and biggest celebrations in heaven whenever a sinner turns around from following their own desires and decides to come home to God. Everyone is invited to celebrate. Our parable today is not more

  • Prodigality, Love And Grace Series

    Contributed by Garth Wehrfritz- Hanson on Mar 5, 2016

    A few details of this beautiful parable that we may miss or take for granted because we think the story is so familiar.

    The so-called parable of the prodigal son is one of the—if not the—most beautiful stories in the whole Bible. God, it is pointed out, is like the father in the story. The beauty and power of this story is made very clear in the description and actions of the father. One of the dangers more

  • "Scandalous Grace"

    Where do you "fit in" to the parable of the Prodigal Son"?

    "Scandalous Grace" Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32 What are we to make of this parable? I think that this parable is the parable that most shows what God is trying to reveal to us in sending Jesus into the world. In the story Jesus tells, the younger son goes off with his inheritance and blows the more

  • Real Talk - Pt. 5 - Hacksaw Ridge Series

    Contributed by Steve Ely on Oct 1, 2017

    Movies + Pop Corn + Church = Reel Talk

    Reel Talk Pt. 5 - Hacksaw Ridge Luke 15 is unique. It is probably no more than a 20 or 30 minute slot of time in Jesus' life. However, it stands out against all other moments when Jesus speaks because the entire exchange is simply stories. Stories to respond to the religious folks and their more

    Contributed by Kenneth Sauer on Mar 9, 2010
    based on 9 ratings

    In Luke Chapter 15 Jesus paints us a vivid picture of the Love of God through the story of the Prodigal Son. How can we celebrate God’s party of love in such a way as to welcome not only the younger brothers who have come back from the dead, but also the

    Luke 15:1-3, 11-32 “Looking Up at Hell” By: Ken Sauer, Pastor of East Ridge United Methodist Church, Chattanooga, TN “There was a man who had two sons.” One—the youngest—comes to his father and demands his share of the inheritance. That may sound odd to our ears, but it’s not more
