Me, the Older Brother?

Come Home

When most of us hear the parable of the Prodigal Son, we think about the time in our life where we went through our prodigal phase. But, most of us in the church have become more like the older brother in the story then we want to admit. Before you listen to this message, listen to Derek Webb's song, "Wedding Dress" and you'll understand what I mean.

From Series: "Come Home"

Jesus told a story which is now known as the Prodigal Son. But it's really about two sons and their relationship with their father. Each child sets off in life seeking a life of fulfillment and happiness. They take very different routes and in up in the most unlikely places. There were two sets of people listening, worst of the worst and the best of the best. Jesus was addressing all of them in this story. In this series we will be looking at what Jesus was saying to each of these two groups about where they are at with God. That after all is a question that everyone wonders at some point in their life... I wonder what God thinks of me?
