Dr. John MuhlfeldJune 27, 2021Passage: Luke 15:25-32
Sometimes the greatest barrier to fellowship with God is not the bad things we do but the good. Not our acts of outright rebellion, but the otherwise good things we do for our own benefit and glory. In Jesus’ parable, the older brother was just as lost as the younger brother even though he had never left home. His pride in his good works had distanced him from his father and made him believe he was without sin. But God offers grace even to older brothers like us through the merit of our Great Older Brother, Jesus Christ.
