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...

Run Home

Posted by Ian Crosby on

When I was a senior in high school, I ran a half marathon. It wasn’t something I really wanted to do, but rather something I did because my friends pressured me into it. So I trained, ran the half marathon, and did better than I though I’d do. When it was all over, I told myself that...

Losing Your Way

Posted by Valerie Williams on

By definition, the word "prodigal" indicates that a person is wastefully extravagant. So often when listening to teaching on this passage, I focus on the depth of the father’s love for his son. I know that I can identify with the son in some way, but that doesn’t tend to captivate my...

To most people, February 15, 2015, is not a special day at all. Just a normal Sunday. But for my family and I, it’s a day we will never forget. I came home from a youth CG that evening and my oldest, Cade, had been waiting for me to get home so that we could talk. When I asked Cade what he...
