Series: Prodigal God: Finding Your Place at the Table
MessageThis Week: Father’s Feast
Scripture: Luke 15:11-32
We had to celebrate Exile is a persistent feeling within the human condition because our sin has destroyed the intimacy with God that we once experienced in the Garden of Eden. God sent Jesus, our true elder brother, all the way to earth to rescue us from the exile of our sin and restore us to full communion with God. When we take the Lord's Supper, we get a taste of the future homecoming feast for all believers when we will celebrate the return of full intimacy between God and us.
This year’s advent theme is “Hometown Jesus.” We’ll be studying the places where Jesus was born and spent his youthful years. It is no accident that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, fled to Egypt, and was raised in Nazareth. Let’s learn why. And know too that your place of birth and your life in NW IN is no accident as well. A sovereign God plans with a purpose in mind!
