(Luke 15:11-32) In the story of the prodigal son Jesus introduces us to three places. Each place teaches us much about the life God has designed for us to live.
If we try to make the house into the field, it becomes a clique. Too many churches have become religious clubs.
If we try to make the field a house, it becomes dirty. Too many churches in their attempt to influence the world end up like the world.
If the house follows the world, it becomes carnal. “The church has become so worldly and the world has become so churchy it is hard to tell the difference.” (Billy Graham)
If the far country tries to be the house, it becomes religious. Religious people can be dangerous people. Government is never a good god!
