Description

Let me ask you this question, “what is true love?” Or let me rephrase the question: have you experienced true love?” Singles love to talk about this four-letter word but on a serious note – there is more to life than a relationship. I want you to know and experience what True Life is. A life that experiences True Love only through one person.

There is someone tugging in your heart, telling you – “are you looking for true love? Look at me.” Perfect love can only be known and experienced through one person. Satisfaction and completeness can only be found in the Lord.

In Luke 15:11-32, we’ll find the parable called “the parable of the prodigal son.” But what is a parable? Based on Wiki – a parable is a succinct, didactic story, in prose or verse, which illustrates one or more instructive lessons or principles. It differs from a fable in that fables employ animals, plants, inanimate objects, or forces of nature as characters, whereas parables have human characters.

A parable is a type of analogy. Or simply put, a parable is a simple story used to illustrate a moral or spiritual lesson.

Jesus frequently used parables as a means of illustrating a lesson. Such stories help provide rich symbolism to the lessons he wanted to teach

TRUE LOVE THE FATHER’S LOVE

QUESTION: What is True Love?

PARABLE Story used to Illustrate a  moral or spiritual Lesson

11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who  had two sons.

YOUNGEST SON

OLDEST SON

THE FATHER

11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who  had two sons. 12 The younger one said to  his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the  estate.’ So he divided his property between  them.

11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who  had two sons. 12 The younger one said to  his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the  estate.’ So he divided his property between  them.

13 “Not long after that…

13 “Not long after that, the  younger son got together  all he had, set off for a  distant country and there  squandered his wealth in  wild living.

13 “Not long after that, the  younger son got together  all he had, set off for a  distant country and there  squandered his wealth in  wild living.

14 After he had spent everything, there was a  severe famine in that whole country, and he  began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired  himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent  him to his fields to feed pigs.

16 He longed to fill his stomach  with the pods that the pigs  were eating, but no one gave  him anything.

17 “When he came to his  senses, he said, ‘How  many of my father’s hired  servants have food to  spare, and here I am  starving to death!

18 I will set out and go back to my father and say  to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and  against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be  called your son; make me like one of your hired  servants.’

18 I will set out and go back to my father and say  to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and  against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be  called your son; make me like one of your hired  servants.’

18 I will set out and go back to my father and say  to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and  against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be  called your son; make me like one of your hired  servants.’

20 So he got up and went  to his father…

20 So he got up and went  to his father. “But while he  was still a long way off, his  father saw him and was  filled with compassion for  him; he ran to his son,  threw his arms around him  and kissed him.

21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned  against heaven and against you. I am no longer  worthy to be called your son.’

22 “But the father said to his servants,  ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it  on him. Put a ring on his finger and  sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the  fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a  feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of  mine was dead and is alive again; he  was lost and is found.’…

22 “But the father said to his servants,  ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it  on him. Put a ring on his finger and  sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the  fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a  feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of  mine was dead and is alive again; he  was lost and is found.’…

Waiting for you Waiting to show His  Compassion for you Waiting to Restore You

Wanted his inheritance  now Wanted to be away from  his Father Wanted to go his own  way
