I Will Go To My Father

Luke 15:18

Intro: The young man was:

  1. Disrespectful – vs. 12 …give me…
  2. Disobedient – vs. 13 riotous living
  3. Disappointed – vs. 14-17 …I perish…

I. He Remembered His Father’s Goodness – vs. 17

  1. The Provision – bread in my Father’s house
  2. The Plenty – and to spare

II. He Repented of His Foolish Greed – vs. 18

  • 12 – give me
  • 13 – he gathered all together
  • 14 – he spent all/wasted his substance

His greed was his downfall. Notice his repentance:

  • I have sinned – No Excuses
  • I am no more worthy – No Pretences
  • Make me – No Rebellion

III. He Receive His Forgiving Grace – vs. 22-24

  • the best robe
  • the ring
  • shoes
  • fatted calf – he wanted bread, but got beef!
  • began to be merry – no doubt for the first time in a long time

David said in Psalm 51 …restore unto me the joy of thy salvation.
