5 Things About a Good Father

There are all types of fathers in the world; some good and others that may not be so good. In Luke 15, Jesus addresses what a good father is. By speaking through the Parable of the Prodigal Son, we find some specific "good father" characteristics.  Most importantly, we find that the traits present in the Prodigal's father are traits of our Heavenly Father as well.
 
Join us as we look at the Parable of the Prodigal Son from a different angle, in this message from Brother Jim - "5 Things About a Good Father".

    Two Rebels Under One Roof

    The Prodigal son - we all know the parable, but have we ever thought it through? In Luke 15, we learn about not only the son that took his inheritance and left, but also the one who stayed behind. One was an outward sinner whom spent his inheritance on loose living, and one an inward, self-righteous Pharisee. Both went against their father's will for them; but left us a lesson about being a rebel.
     
    Let's pick back up in Luke chapter 15, for this week's message from Brother Gifford entitled - "Two Rebels Under One Roof."

    How To Make The Angels Rejoice

    In Luke 15, Jesus uses parables to show how He seeks the lost, and rejoices when He finds them. Furthermore, we learn that the Angels in Heaven rejoice over that one sinner who repents. But that isn't the only truth that we learn. We also find out through this example how we should act toward the lost and the world around us.

    Straight Talk for Saints and Sinners

    In the thirteenth chapter of Luke, Jesus expounds upon what the Kingdom of God is like. It is like a small  mustard seed that grows into a large tree, as well as something like leaven that spreads to the whole measure of dough.
     
    Just like an athlete strives to win a race, Jesus reminds us all - saints and sinners alike - to strive to enter into the Kingdom. Jesus also makes it clear that there is only one way to enter that not everyone will enter into His Kingdom. How does one enter? Through the narrow gate - the blood of Christ.

    BE READY FOR THE FUTURE

    Be Ready for the Future

    Where does Jesus find the church when he comes? What will we be doing? Will we be joyful? Welcoming? Ready for Him? In Luke, Jesus tells us to be like men who are waiting for their master, and whom open immediately when their master knocks. In order for us to have this type of readiness, one must keep ready for Him, and do work for the Kingdom.

    What A Difference Jesus Makes

     
    In the 13th chapter of Luke, we witness the difference that Jesus makes as He speaks and brings truth. Using the parable of the fig tree with no fruit, as well as the woman that had, what the Scripture calls, a disabling spirit for 18 years, we learn that Jesus can make a difference, and straighten out what sin has bent. The results are nothing short of glorious.

    Let Freedom Ring

    Special Independence Day message - In the US, we have freedoms like no other country has in history. Some of these have gave us liberty, while others cause bondage as well as blindness to the truth. What is that truth? That we are to fight the good fight - fight for truth. When we do so, the truth of Jesus will shine forth, and others can find the same liberty that believers in Christ enjoy every day.

    Like A Child

     
    In Mark chapter 9, Jesus uses children as an example to teach a lesson. This lesson, can be easily applied to those of us in today's world. We must be watchful of what we do, where we go, and what we see. When we watch our actions, we ensure that the children around us do not follow in our bad decisions. How to we do that? Jesus explains to us that we are to have salt in ourselves, and have peace with one another.

    In Luke chapter 8, we read about a man named Jairus, and how he faces the nightmare that parents fear the most - a death of a child. This father, willing to do anything for his child, comes to Jesus begging for help; and with three powerful words, Jesus steps into the life of this family - "Little girl, arise."

    Generousness - Luke 12
     
    Generousness is defined as "the quality or state of being generous". In Luke 12, we read of a man who has a problem in common with his brother over their inheritance. Keeping true to His method of teaching, Jesus uses this opportunity, not to scold the man for his greed, but as a chance for Him to teach us all a lesson about greed through the parable of the rich fool.
