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...

Hidden Treasure

Posted by David Griffin on

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field." — Matthew 13:44 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved...

Reason to Celebrate

Posted by Luke Bedford on

As I was sitting in the service on Sunday morning, listening to Casey give a sermon over the parable of the lost sheep, I couldn’t help but think about an experience I had with a “lost sheep” a couple of years ago at work. It technically wasn’t a sheep; it was a camper...

Come As You Are

Posted by Joy Vroonland on

“…Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.” So they began to celebrate.— Luke 15:23-24 I wish I remembered my grandfather, George. By all accounts, he was a great man — giving, faithful and...

Count It All Joy

Posted by Abbie Kilgore on

The timing of this devo is funny for me. I have been lucky enough to live a pretty smooth life for the past few years. Knowing that the sermon from this past Sunday focused on trials and how we respond to them, I didn’t have much personal experience. But then I tore my meniscus, and it...

Hope in Suffering

Posted by Riley Roberson on

James is the type of person you would go to in high school to get them to check out your essay before you turned it in. His writing is beautiful. Having made it all the way through the book, we can see that he begins and ends it with the same idea: in all things, good or bad, we can look to God...

Piece By Piece

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

The first American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, put out a song in 2015 titled Piece By Piece that describes how her relationship with her father broke her, and how her husband’s commitment healed her. The lyrics, which Clarkson co-wrote after a conversation with her sister, begin with the...
