PRODIGAL SON SERMON OUTLINES

by Jerry Vines

I talked to you last week about the matter of bringing up your children. Whether you are a believer or not, if you have children, I am sure it is the great desire of you that your children turn out well and be everything you have tried to teach and train them to be. If you are a Christian parent, I am sure you not only want them to turn out well, but you want them to be saved and live for the...

Jesus is alive; He is risen; He is not in the tomb or grave; death could not hold Him down. The resurrection is the most profound foundation to the Christian message: our leader lives! The alive savior seeks out all people to know Him personally and to live a life under His lordship. Jesus came to seek and save the lost and today, celebration day, Jesus seeks to...

If you have your Bible turn to Luke 15:25. And today is the second in a new series of lessons called ''Timely Answers to Key Questions''. And these lessons are from the gospel of Luke. And in the gospel of Luke we find parables not found in any of the other three gospels. Although both Matthew and Mark record the parables of Jesus...

The story of the Prodigal is one of Jesus' best-known parables. It is also one of the least understood. It is not that it is hard to understand. Like all of his stories, this one is simple, straightforward, and true to life. But we still often miss the point. We miss it because we are distracted. Who can hear this...

I noticed some years ago a pattern when dealing with parents and children. (Let me hasten to day, nobody has all the answers). The more I counsel therefore, I'm learning I don't have all the answers. The only thing I know for sure is what God's Word says, and I'm learning to stand on it more than what I think. It comes out a whole lot better. Some parents...

Last week we discussed the prodigal son, and how he believed his sins drove him away from his father's love. However, his failures revealed the depth of his father's love in a way that he could not understand until he had nothing but failure to offer him. In the same way, we don't understand the depths of God's love for us until we begin...

by Jim Henry

I learned some years ago, in counseling with parents, that no one has all the answers. And the longer I minister, the more I am sure of that, because I'm still learning. The only thing I know is what God's Word says, and I'm learning to stand on it more than what I think, and find that I come out a whole lot better. In talking to those parents...

If you have your Bibles, turn with me to Luke 15. The subject today is the joy of God in welcoming a sinner home to Himself in total love. Somehow there is in the mind of people the idea that there is a reluctance on God's part to receive us unto Himself or to really believe that He loves us enough to joy over us when we turn to Him, but when we read Luke, the 15th chapter and verse 23, we read these words, ''Let us eat...

Raising children is the hardest job I've ever had! Raising children has been more challenging and more consuming than pastoring Baptist people. I remember as a young parent of three reading one day where the Psalm 127.3-5 said, ''Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward,'' thinking, ''Reward? A reward for...

Without question, the most recognized person in all of the world of sports is Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods is arguably the greatest golfer to ever put on a pair of golf shoes. Tiger Woods has won 71 tournament victories. He's won 14 majors. He's won more money on the tour than anyone has ever won. Tiger Woods, up until a few months ago, had everything. He had money...

The case of the lost sheep, the case of the lost coin, and now, the case of the lost son. I know this is Memorial Day weekend and we're supposed to talk about sacrifice because it's the sacrifice of others we remember on Memorial Day. But shouldn't every day we can still breathe free and enjoy the freedoms of our great republic be a...

by Charles H. Spurgeon

There he is! He is as wretched as misery itself; as filthy as his brute associates who could satisfy themselves with husks, while he could not. His clothes hang about him in rags, and what he is without, that he is within. He is disgraced in the eyes of the good, and the virtuous remember him with indignation. He has some desires to...

by Ron Clarkson

Jesus Christ draws on our understanding and our knowledge of sibling relations to teach us a valuable lesson. He takes our experience and understanding of human nature and illustrates for us, in an all to familiar fashion, that we all have a tendency to loose a little compassion now and then for those that we may be in...

by George H. Morrison

I wonder if my readers ever noticed that the Prodigal made two petitions to his father. The first was: "Father, give me." "Give me the portion of goods that falleth to me." The son was growing weary of the home. He felt acutely that he was missing things. The world was big, and the days were going by, and he was young, and he...

by Jerry Vines

And Jesus Said, "A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of good thats falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country. and there wasted his substance with...
