The Only Solution

Posted by Randy Wade on

My original plan to was to write a devotional thought based on the conclusion of the parable of the prodigal son. The past few weeks we have taught on the shameful and mind-boggling characters Jesus created to help each of us see our lostness and the overwhelming grace of God. My original plan...

Trying to Be More Like the Father

Posted by Laci Jackson on

For the past month, every Sunday has hit with me a sense of reality. I have been waiting for this last message, hoping we could skip it over it because it hits a little too close to home. Every day I wake up with the choice to be the older brother from the parable in Luke 15. Most days, if I am...

Choosing Forgiveness Over Bitterness

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

And [the father] said to him, Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. It was fitting to celebrate and be glad, for this your brother was dead, and is alive; he was lost, and is found.— Luke 15:31-32 The older brother was hacked off because the father’s grace won...

Working for What We Already Have

Posted by Riley Roberson on

I’m grateful we were able to cover each character in the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15. The older brother’s part at the end is often neglected, so I’m glad we were able to dig into it. The purpose of analyzing a specific character in one of the parables isn’t to...

The Love of the Father

Posted by Joe Paris on

How can God the Father love a person who is lost and rebellious in sin? It's a love that is hard to fathom. This love would send Jesus Christ to the cross for our sins. How can God the Father love us so much? My wife and I have two daughters. Lola, our 3-year-old, is an adventurous explorer...

The Prodigal Daughter

Posted by Rebecca Spence on

As I sat through the incredible message led by Pastor David Griffin this past Sunday at the c|Life Forney campus, I was reminded of my salvation. I was reminded of the deplorable state from which I was rescued. It’s all too easy to rest in God’s arms and be lulled into a sense that...

Our Idea of the Father

Posted by Jenna Winegeart on

Blake (my husband) and I have been watching the latest season of Scandal* on Netflix nearly every night for the past two weeks after we put our girls to bed. There is a character, a man in his 60s named Rowan, who is one of the most conniving, vicious characters out there. When we watched a...

Just Come Home

Posted by Lisalette Hamon on

God went against,and still goes against,what we see as just: you sow well, you reap well. God, our loving father, desires to show us mercy whether we heap insults on him knowingly or do so out of ignorance. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the...

Too Afraid to Return

Posted by Casey Coats on

A few years back, at youth camp, a group of students decided that it would be a funny prank to sneak out of their room in the middle of the night. They were hoping that we would chase them around the entire camp, but we didn’t. We just sat outside their room and waited until they came...

The Son's Plans, The Father's Heart

Posted by Steve Glenn on

"When he came to his senses…"— Luke 15:17 From the reading of the story, it is clear that the younger son in Luke 15 had a good father. The son really had everything he needed. But, for whatever reason, he did not respect or appreciate what he had. He wanted more. He wanted...
