INTRODUCTION: IN THE STORY OF THE PRODIGAL SON WE CONCENTRATE ON THE TWO SON'S, BUT THE FOCUS OUGHT TO BE ON THE FATHER.

THIS IS A STORY FOR PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE CHURCH, BUT THIS PARABLE IS REALLY FOR PEOPLE INSIDE THE CHURCH.

THREE TRUTHS ABOUT THE FATHER

I) THE FATHER LOVES YOU EVEN WHEN YOU REBEL AGAINST HIM.  LUKE 15:12

II) THE FATHER ACCEPTS YOU WHEN YOU RETURN TO HIM.
LUKE 15:17
