  • ROBERT MORRIS: Here's what I'm trying to tell you, you're valuabl
  • 00:00:01.180 --> 00:00:01.190
  • ROBERT MORRIS: Here's what I'm trying to tell you, you're valuable.
  • 00:00:01.190 --> 00:00:02.270
  • The value of anything is determined by what someone's
  • 00:00:03.000 --> 00:00:05.250
  • willing to pay for it.
  • 00:00:05.280 --> 00:00:07.140
  • And God paid the blood of His Son for you.
  • 00:00:07.170 --> 00:00:09.150
  • And he paid the same price for you as he did
  • 00:00:09.180 --> 00:00:12.060
  • for any leader you see in the body of Christ.
  • 00:00:12.090 --> 00:00:14.130
  • The father of the prodigal son battled with the wait
  • 00:00:15.120 --> 00:00:18.110
  • for his son's heart to change.
  • 00:00:18.140 --> 00:00:20.180
  • He wanted nothing more than to bring his son home
  • 00:00:20.210 --> 00:00:23.070
  • and eagerly watched and waited for his son to return
  • 00:00:23.100 --> 00:00:25.260
  • by his own free will.
  • 00:00:25.290 --> 00:00:27.280
  • Join my pastor Robert Morris as he explains
  • 00:00:28.010 --> 00:00:30.210
  • how our heavenly Father yearns for us to turn our hearts
  • 00:00:30.240 --> 00:00:34.040
  • towards him because He treasures each person as unique.
  • 00:00:34.070 --> 00:00:38.020
  • There is no one like you.
  • 00:00:38.050 --> 00:00:40.110
  • 00:00:40.140 --> 00:00:54.280
  • ROBERT: This weekend I want to share with you
  • 00:00:55.190 --> 00:00:57.170
  • the father's battle.
  • 00:00:57.200 --> 00:00:59.290
  • And I'm actually not going to tell you
  • 00:01:00.040 --> 00:01:02.110
  • what the father's battle is,
  • 00:01:02.140 --> 00:01:05.200
  • until the end of the message, alright?
  • 00:01:05.230 --> 00:01:07.230
  • But let me show you some things in Luke 15.
  • 00:01:07.260 --> 00:01:11.070
  • I'm starting with, here at three points,
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:12.240
  • here's the first one. You are precious.
  • 00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:17.150
  • I think Luke 15 tells us some things
  • 00:01:17.180 --> 00:01:20.220
  • that we need to know about ourselves.
  • 00:01:20.250 --> 00:01:22.260
  • And I think that's what Jesus was trying to communicate
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:25.020
  • with these three parables in Luke 15.
  • 00:01:25.050 --> 00:01:27.260
  • Not just the parable of the prodigal.
  • 00:01:27.290 --> 00:01:29.240
  • So Luke 15 look at verse 1, it says,
  • 00:01:29.270 --> 00:01:33.090
  • "Then all the tax collectors and the sinners
  • 00:01:33.120 --> 00:01:35.080
  • drew near to hear him and the pharisees
  • 00:01:35.110 --> 00:01:37.200
  • and scribes complained saying, 'This man receives sinners
  • 00:01:37.230 --> 00:01:41.230
  • and eats with them.'
  • 00:01:41.260 --> 00:01:43.080
  • So he spoke this parable to them."
  • 00:01:43.110 --> 00:01:48.160
  • That's why he spoke the parable.
  • 00:01:48.190 --> 00:01:50.010
  • And of course he tells three parables here.
  • 00:01:50.040 --> 00:01:52.020
  • "Saying, 'What man of you having 100 sheep if he loses
  • 00:01:52.050 --> 00:01:55.250
  • one of them does not leave the 99 in the wilderness
  • 00:01:55.280 --> 00:01:58.280
  • and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?
  • 00:01:59.010 --> 00:02:03.100
  • And when he's found it he lays it on his shoulders rejoicing.
  • 00:02:03.130 --> 00:02:06.280
  • And when he comes home he calls together his friends
  • 00:02:07.010 --> 00:02:09.020
  • and neighbors saying to them, "Rejoice with me
  • 00:02:09.050 --> 00:02:11.150
  • for I have found my sheep..."'"
  • 00:02:11.180 --> 00:02:15.170
  • I just want you to notice those two words,
  • 00:02:15.200 --> 00:02:17.140
  • "'...my sheep which was lost.'
  • 00:02:17.170 --> 00:02:20.060
  • And I say to you that likewise
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:22.060
  • there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents
  • 00:02:22.090 --> 00:02:26.240
  • than over 99 just persons who need no repentance."
  • 00:02:26.270 --> 00:02:31.110
  • So he tells three stories and we're gonna read all three.
  • 00:02:31.140 --> 00:02:34.050
  • The first one is about a shepherd that has a 100 sheep
  • 00:02:34.080 --> 00:02:37.200
  • and he loses one, he leaves the 99 and goes after the one.
  • 00:02:37.230 --> 00:02:41.110
  • He finds it, puts it on his shoulders
  • 00:02:41.140 --> 00:02:43.160
  • and brings it home and calls his friends
  • 00:02:43.190 --> 00:02:45.120
  • and says, "Rejoice with me."
  • 00:02:45.150 --> 00:02:47.020
  • Obviously, the shepherd represents Jesus.
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:51.080
  • John 10:11, Jesus said clearly, "'I am the Good Shepherd.
  • 00:02:51.110 --> 00:02:56.270
  • The Good Shepherd gives his life for the sheep.'"
  • 00:02:57.000 --> 00:02:59.270
  • Now this is really simple,
  • 00:03:00.020 --> 00:03:03.290
  • I'm saying the point is from this parable,
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:05.250
  • that I want you to hear and I think the Lord
  • 00:03:05.280 --> 00:03:07.270
  • wants you to hear, is you are precious.
  • 00:03:08.000 --> 00:03:11.260
  • You, individually.
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:13.200
  • I want you to think about this.
  • 00:03:13.230 --> 00:03:16.000
  • This shepherd has a 100 sheep.
  • 00:03:16.030 --> 00:03:19.120
  • He loses one and he goes after that one.
  • 00:03:19.150 --> 00:03:24.020
  • Just one sheep.
  • 00:03:24.050 --> 00:03:26.200
  • See we're precious because Jesus knows all of His sheep.
  • 00:03:26.230 --> 00:03:31.130
  • He says, "Rejoice with me because
  • 00:03:31.160 --> 00:03:33.200
  • my sheep that was lost, I've found."
  • 00:03:33.230 --> 00:03:36.110
  • And I also want you to notice that the shepherd
  • 00:03:36.140 --> 00:03:39.170
  • doesn't send someone to find the sheep.
  • 00:03:39.200 --> 00:03:42.200
  • He comes himself.
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:44.110
  • I have a study on this and I don't have time to do it all,
  • 00:03:44.140 --> 00:03:46.250
  • but I'm just gonna give you three of the verses.
  • 00:03:46.280 --> 00:03:49.130
  • I love the phrase, and you can do this study yourself,
  • 00:03:49.160 --> 00:03:52.040
  • I love the phrase he himself.
  • 00:03:52.070 --> 00:03:55.000
  • It's in many places in the Bible.
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:56.180
  • He himself.
  • 00:03:56.210 --> 00:03:58.120
  • Let me just show you three in Hebrews.
  • 00:03:58.150 --> 00:04:00.160
  • Hebrews 1:3, "When He by Himself..."
  • 00:04:00.190 --> 00:04:04.240
  • In other words no one helped Him.
  • 00:04:04.270 --> 00:04:06.130
  • "By Himself He purged our sins."
  • 00:04:06.160 --> 00:04:08.280
  • Hebrews 2:18, "He Himself has suffered."
  • 00:04:09.010 --> 00:04:13.060
  • Hebrews 13:5, you probably know this scripture,
  • 00:04:13.090 --> 00:04:15.260
  • but look at this part of it, "He Himself has said,
  • 00:04:15.290 --> 00:04:19.120
  • 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.'"
  • 00:04:19.150 --> 00:04:22.130
  • He Himself.
  • 00:04:22.160 --> 00:04:24.040
  • Isaiah 59:16, this doesn't say He Himself,
  • 00:04:24.070 --> 00:04:26.140
  • but I want you to notice, "He..."
  • 00:04:26.170 --> 00:04:28.010
  • This is the messianic scripture,
  • 00:04:28.040 --> 00:04:30.090
  • it's talking about Jesus, in the Old Testament.
  • 00:04:30.120 --> 00:04:32.010
  • "He saw that there was no man.
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:34.270
  • And He wondered that there was no intercessor..."
  • 00:04:35.000 --> 00:04:39.090
  • Remember I told you about intercession
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:41.080
  • is like the word intersection.
  • 00:04:41.110 --> 00:04:42.230
  • It's bringing two things together.
  • 00:04:42.260 --> 00:04:44.090
  • He wondered there's no one to bring God and people together,
  • 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:47.240
  • there's no one to do it.
  • 00:04:47.270 --> 00:04:50.220
  • "Therefore His own arm brought salvation."
  • 00:04:50.250 --> 00:04:54.090
  • Here's what I want you to know and because we're gonna read
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:56.020
  • so many scripture, I can't comment
  • 00:04:56.050 --> 00:04:57.200
  • on all of it as much as I'd like to.
  • 00:04:57.230 --> 00:04:59.140
  • But here's what I want you to get from this first parable.
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:01.200
  • Jesus Himself came to get you.
  • 00:05:01.230 --> 00:05:06.240
  • He didn't send someone to come get you.
  • 00:05:06.270 --> 00:05:09.110
  • He Himself.
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:10.260
  • He left the 99 and He came to get you and you personally.
  • 00:05:10.290 --> 00:05:16.180
  • And you'll see that as we go on in the message.
  • 00:05:16.210 --> 00:05:19.280
  • Years ago I was reading a book and this story was in the book.
  • 00:05:20.010 --> 00:05:24.020
  • Reminding me of what the Lord did for us, it says,
  • 00:05:24.050 --> 00:05:25.170
  • "After World War I the United States allocated funds
  • 00:05:25.200 --> 00:05:30.040
  • for the orphans in Europe.
  • 00:05:30.070 --> 00:05:32.150
  • In one of the orphanages a very old and thin man
  • 00:05:32.180 --> 00:05:35.090
  • brought in a very thin little girl and said,
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:37.210
  • 'I'd like you to take care and take in my little girl please.'
  • 00:05:37.240 --> 00:05:42.050
  • They asked him if she was his daughter
  • 00:05:42.080 --> 00:05:43.200
  • and when he said yes they said we're very sorry but our rules
  • 00:05:43.230 --> 00:05:47.150
  • are that we can't take in any children
  • 00:05:47.180 --> 00:05:50.140
  • if either of the parents are still living.
  • 00:05:50.170 --> 00:05:53.040
  • He said, "But I've been in prison camps
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:56.000
  • and now I'm too old and too sick to work.
  • 00:05:56.030 --> 00:05:58.080
  • She'll die if you don't take care of her.'
  • 00:05:58.110 --> 00:06:00.040
  • They felt compassion, but they told him
  • 00:06:00.070 --> 00:06:01.210
  • they couldn't do anything about it.
  • 00:06:01.240 --> 00:06:04.060
  • Then the man said, 'Are you telling me,
  • 00:06:04.090 --> 00:06:09.280
  • that if I died you'll take care of my little girl?
  • 00:06:10.010 --> 00:06:15.030
  • And she can live and have food and have clothes
  • 00:06:15.060 --> 00:06:17.210
  • and have a home?'
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:19.210
  • And they said, 'Yes.'
  • 00:06:19.240 --> 00:06:22.100
  • And the father reached down, pulled her up to himself,
  • 00:06:22.130 --> 00:06:27.000
  • hugged her, kissed her,
  • 00:06:27.030 --> 00:06:30.020
  • and then put her hand in the hand of the man
  • 00:06:30.050 --> 00:06:32.020
  • at the desk and then said to him,
  • 00:06:32.050 --> 00:06:37.030
  • 'I'll arrange it.'
  • 00:06:37.060 --> 00:06:40.040
  • And he walked out of the orphanage and he hung himself."
  • 00:06:40.070 --> 00:06:45.180
  • The reason I read you that story
  • 00:06:45.210 --> 00:06:48.130
  • is because I think that's what Jesus did.
  • 00:06:48.160 --> 00:06:52.160
  • I think He said to the Father, "You mean if I die,
  • 00:06:52.190 --> 00:06:58.050
  • they can live?"
  • 00:06:58.080 --> 00:07:00.200
  • And the Father said, "Yes."
  • 00:07:00.230 --> 00:07:03.240
  • And he put my hand in the hand of the Father
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:08.150
  • and said, "I'll arrange it."
  • 00:07:08.180 --> 00:07:11.260
  • The Shepherd left Heaven to get you, to get one sheep.
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:18.000
  • So you're precious.
  • 00:07:18.030 --> 00:07:19.160
  • Why else would a shepherd step in front of a wolf?
  • 00:07:19.190 --> 00:07:21.240
  • For each sheep.
  • 00:07:21.270 --> 00:07:24.180
  • Here's number two.
  • 00:07:24.210 --> 00:07:26.030
  • You are valuable.
  • 00:07:26.060 --> 00:07:28.200
  • This is from the second parable that He tells in Luke 15.
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:30.140
  • You're valuable.
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:32.000
  • Luke 15:8, so just stay in Luke 15 for the whole message,
  • 00:07:32.030 --> 00:07:35.290
  • "Or what woman having ten silver coins..."
  • 00:07:36.020 --> 00:07:39.220
  • I wish I could really go into the background
  • 00:07:39.250 --> 00:07:41.080
  • of why there's silver here, not gold.
  • 00:07:41.110 --> 00:07:43.070
  • I'll go into a little bit of it.
  • 00:07:43.100 --> 00:07:45.160
  • That's amazing.
  • 00:07:45.190 --> 00:07:47.090
  • "It says if she loses one coin, what woman
  • 00:07:47.120 --> 00:07:50.100
  • does not light a lamp, sweep the house
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:52.180
  • and search carefully until she finds it?
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:55.030
  • And when she's found it she calls her friends
  • 00:07:55.060 --> 00:07:56.270
  • and neighbors together saying rejoice with me
  • 00:07:57.000 --> 00:07:58.130
  • for I found the piece which I lost."
  • 00:07:58.160 --> 00:08:01.070
  • Which I lost.
  • 00:08:01.100 --> 00:08:03.060
  • It was her coin.
  • 00:08:03.090 --> 00:08:04.210
  • "Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence
  • 00:08:04.240 --> 00:08:06.280
  • of the angels of God over every sinner that repents."
  • 00:08:07.010 --> 00:08:10.220
  • OK I think the reason that He uses a coin now
  • 00:08:10.250 --> 00:08:14.230
  • is because He's trying to show value.
  • 00:08:14.260 --> 00:08:17.020
  • A silver coin showed value.
  • 00:08:17.050 --> 00:08:20.090
  • And I think He uses a woman because He's trying to show
  • 00:08:20.120 --> 00:08:24.080
  • the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:08:24.110 --> 00:08:26.030
  • If you think about the first parable is about a shepherd,
  • 00:08:26.060 --> 00:08:28.230
  • that's obviously Jesus. He said I'm the Shepherd.
  • 00:08:28.260 --> 00:08:31.060
  • The third parable the prodigal son is about a Father.
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:35.100
  • This is about a woman.
  • 00:08:35.130 --> 00:08:37.000
  • Now, I know this isn't always the case,
  • 00:08:37.030 --> 00:08:40.050
  • but for the most part women are more in touch
  • 00:08:40.080 --> 00:08:42.250
  • with their feelings than men are.
  • 00:08:42.280 --> 00:08:46.040
  • That's why we get married.
  • 00:08:46.070 --> 00:08:50.160
  • Because a woman will say,
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:52.280
  • "You mean your parents left you and you were raised by wolves?"
  • 00:08:53.010 --> 00:08:57.100
  • And a man will say, "Yep."
  • 00:08:57.130 --> 00:09:00.020
  • No emotion at all.
  • 00:09:00.050 --> 00:09:02.100
  • "Your parents left you?" "Yeah."
  • 00:09:02.130 --> 00:09:04.250
  • "Didn't that hurt?" "No I liked the wolves."
  • 00:09:04.280 --> 00:09:09.090
  • She said, "I think it hurt." "No, it didn't hurt me."
  • 00:09:09.120 --> 00:09:11.060
  • What she does is, she'll grab the memory
  • 00:09:11.090 --> 00:09:13.060
  • and she'll grab a feeling over here.
  • 00:09:13.090 --> 00:09:15.180
  • And men have never attached the two.
  • 00:09:15.210 --> 00:09:18.150
  • And she'll start saying, "Yeah I think it hurt you."
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:20.060
  • "No it didn't." "Yeah I think it did."
  • 00:09:20.090 --> 00:09:22.010
  • "No it didn't...Ahh!" Like that.
  • 00:09:22.040 --> 00:09:23.250
  • And you say, "What is it?"
  • 00:09:23.280 --> 00:09:25.100
  • She says, "It's a feeling, honey.
  • 00:09:25.130 --> 00:09:27.110
  • That's a feeling." That's a feeling.
  • 00:09:27.140 --> 00:09:32.030
  • You know, when you say the Holy Spirit in scripture
  • 00:09:32.060 --> 00:09:34.150
  • you see emotion.
  • 00:09:34.180 --> 00:09:36.040
  • I don't know if you've done this but you'll see joy.
  • 00:09:36.070 --> 00:09:39.020
  • The fruit of the Spirit is joy, joy is an emotion.
  • 00:09:39.050 --> 00:09:43.230
  • The Holy Spirit brings joy, righteousness, peace, and joy.
  • 00:09:43.260 --> 00:09:47.220
  • When you study scripture about the Holy Spirit
  • 00:09:47.250 --> 00:09:49.090
  • you see that he's grieved.
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:50.260
  • Grief is an emotion.
  • 00:09:50.290 --> 00:09:52.140
  • When a believer goes in to sin it grieves the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:09:52.170 --> 00:09:56.040
  • James 4:5 says that, "Do you think the scripture says
  • 00:09:56.070 --> 00:09:59.090
  • in vain the Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously.
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:04.260
  • Jealously. Jealousy is an emotion.
  • 00:10:04.290 --> 00:10:07.100
  • Now there's a good jealousy and a bad jealousy.
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:09.240
  • The bad jealousy is that you're jealous
  • 00:10:09.270 --> 00:10:11.210
  • because of what it means to you.
  • 00:10:11.240 --> 00:10:14.210
  • The good jealousy is you're jealous for what it does
  • 00:10:14.240 --> 00:10:16.190
  • for the other person. How it affects that person.
  • 00:10:16.220 --> 00:10:19.280
  • And we know there's a good jealousy
  • 00:10:20.010 --> 00:10:21.130
  • because the Holy Spirit feels it.
  • 00:10:21.160 --> 00:10:23.030
  • The root word of silver in Hebrew --
  • 00:10:23.060 --> 00:10:26.200
  • and that's why I said I can't go into all of it --
  • 00:10:26.230 --> 00:10:28.080
  • but it means desirable.
  • 00:10:28.110 --> 00:10:30.290
  • See, think about this she had ten coins,
  • 00:10:31.020 --> 00:10:34.020
  • but she yearned for the one she lost.
  • 00:10:34.050 --> 00:10:36.290
  • The shepherd had 100 sheep.
  • 00:10:37.020 --> 00:10:38.200
  • He still had 99, but he grieved for the one that was lost.
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:44.110
  • Here's the Holy Spirit turning the lamp on,
  • 00:10:44.140 --> 00:10:48.040
  • turning the light on, so that we can find out way home.
  • 00:10:48.070 --> 00:10:52.170
  • Something else you need to know about these silver coins
  • 00:10:52.200 --> 00:10:54.160
  • is they always had an image on 'em.
  • 00:10:54.190 --> 00:10:56.290
  • They had the image of the ruler.
  • 00:10:57.020 --> 00:10:59.210
  • You remember the story?
  • 00:10:59.240 --> 00:11:01.190
  • They said, "Should we pay taxes?"
  • 00:11:01.220 --> 00:11:03.100
  • I'd still like to ask Jesus that still today.
  • 00:11:03.130 --> 00:11:07.140
  • Should we pay that much, you know, Lord.
  • 00:11:07.170 --> 00:11:09.270
  • So but Jesus said, "Whose image is on the coin?"
  • 00:11:10.000 --> 00:11:13.160
  • You remember that? Whose image?
  • 00:11:13.190 --> 00:11:15.010
  • They said, "Caesar."
  • 00:11:15.040 --> 00:11:16.160
  • He said, "Give to Caesar, what is Caesar's..."
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:18.080
  • Or renders what -- you know, what the Old King James says.
  • 00:11:18.110 --> 00:11:20.060
  • "...And unto God what is God's."
  • 00:11:20.090 --> 00:11:21.210
  • OK but there was an image on the coin.
  • 00:11:21.240 --> 00:11:23.290
  • Listen to me, I've got a great question for you.
  • 00:11:24.020 --> 00:11:26.050
  • Whose image is on you?
  • 00:11:26.080 --> 00:11:30.130
  • You know.
  • 00:11:30.160 --> 00:11:32.040
  • You were created in the image and the likeness of God.
  • 00:11:32.070 --> 00:11:38.020
  • Here's what I'm tryin' to tell you.
  • 00:11:38.050 --> 00:11:39.170
  • You're valuable.
  • 00:11:39.200 --> 00:11:41.190
  • Your value, the value of anything --
  • 00:11:41.220 --> 00:11:43.220
  • and I know my throat from the drainage
  • 00:11:43.250 --> 00:11:45.210
  • is kinda sore so just don't let that bother you
  • 00:11:45.240 --> 00:11:49.190
  • but I can tell it even more now.
  • 00:11:49.220 --> 00:11:51.040
  • I was gonna not say anything, but now I have to say something,
  • 00:11:51.070 --> 00:11:53.260
  • so OK.
  • 00:11:53.290 --> 00:11:59.220
  • -- OK I got it.
  • 00:12:01.120 --> 00:12:02.240
  • The value of anything is determined
  • 00:12:02.270 --> 00:12:05.230
  • by what someone's willing to pay for it.
  • 00:12:05.260 --> 00:12:11.260
  • And God paid the blood of his Son for you.
  • 00:12:11.290 --> 00:12:15.150
  • And He paid the same price for you that He paid
  • 00:12:15.180 --> 00:12:18.120
  • for any leader you see in the body of Christ.
  • 00:12:18.150 --> 00:12:22.250
  • There's not one person that you've ever seen
  • 00:12:22.280 --> 00:12:25.030
  • or read a book from that's more valuable to God than you.
  • 00:12:25.060 --> 00:12:30.040
  • These coins all have the same value,
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:33.070
  • but she wanted to find the one because each coin has value.
  • 00:12:33.100 --> 00:12:37.190
  • And I think that's why he told us this.
  • 00:12:37.220 --> 00:12:39.060
  • So you're valuable. And here's the third one.
  • 00:12:39.090 --> 00:12:42.250
  • You are unique.
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:46.180
  • I never seen this before in the parable of the prodigal son.
  • 00:12:46.210 --> 00:12:50.130
  • Look at verse 11, "He said, 'A certain man had two sons.
  • 00:12:50.160 --> 00:12:54.080
  • The younger of them said to his father,
  • 00:12:54.110 --> 00:12:55.240
  • 'Father give me the portion of goods that falls to me.
  • 00:12:55.270 --> 00:12:58.210
  • So he divided of them his livelihood.
  • 00:12:58.240 --> 00:13:00.210
  • And not many days after the younger son
  • 00:13:00.240 --> 00:13:02.060
  • gathered all together, journeyed to a far away country
  • 00:13:02.090 --> 00:13:05.190
  • and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living."
  • 00:13:05.220 --> 00:13:09.100
  • Living without restraint.
  • 00:13:09.130 --> 00:13:11.060
  • "But when he'd spent all, there arose a severe famine
  • 00:13:11.090 --> 00:13:13.160
  • in that land and he began to be in want.
  • 00:13:13.190 --> 00:13:15.040
  • And then he went and joined himself
  • 00:13:15.070 --> 00:13:16.190
  • to a citizen of that country and he sent him into his fields
  • 00:13:16.220 --> 00:13:19.170
  • to feed swine.
  • 00:13:19.200 --> 00:13:21.230
  • And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods
  • 00:13:21.260 --> 00:13:23.270
  • that the swine ate.
  • 00:13:24.000 --> 00:13:25.120
  • And no one gave him anything.
  • 00:13:25.150 --> 00:13:27.230
  • But when he came to himself..."
  • 00:13:27.260 --> 00:13:30.070
  • Now we've talked about that phrase, it's up to you.
  • 00:13:30.100 --> 00:13:33.050
  • If you're gonna return to God or not.
  • 00:13:33.080 --> 00:13:35.220
  • "He said how many of my father's hired servants
  • 00:13:35.250 --> 00:13:37.120
  • have bread enough and to spare and I perish with hunger.
  • 00:13:37.150 --> 00:13:40.000
  • I will arise and I will go to my father and say to him,
  • 00:13:40.030 --> 00:13:42.120
  • 'Father I have sinned against heaven and before you.
  • 00:13:42.150 --> 00:13:44.280
  • And I'm no longer worthy to be called your son.
  • 00:13:45.010 --> 00:13:47.030
  • Make me like one of your hired servants."
  • 00:13:47.060 --> 00:13:49.260
  • And watch verse 20 carefully.
  • 00:13:49.290 --> 00:13:51.120
  • "And he arose and came to his father,
  • 00:13:51.150 --> 00:13:53.260
  • but when he was still a great way off
  • 00:13:53.290 --> 00:13:58.210
  • his father saw him and had compassion.
  • 00:13:58.240 --> 00:14:03.130
  • And ran and fell on his neck and kissed him."
  • 00:14:03.160 --> 00:14:08.120
  • Now what I'm about to say, is difficult to say
  • 00:14:08.150 --> 00:14:17.120
  • because I'm gonna talk about something
  • 00:14:17.150 --> 00:14:18.280
  • that is very sensitive.
  • 00:14:19.010 --> 00:14:22.150
  • But it's the way the Lord showed me this truth.
  • 00:14:22.180 --> 00:14:26.230
  • Debbie and I have never lost a child
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:30.010
  • and we've never had a miscarriage.
  • 00:14:30.040 --> 00:14:34.010
  • We've had grandchildren who were miscarried
  • 00:14:34.040 --> 00:14:37.070
  • and who are now in Heaven.
  • 00:14:37.100 --> 00:14:39.090
  • But we personally never lost a child.
  • 00:14:39.120 --> 00:14:42.210
  • And I'm very, very sorry if you did and I don't mean
  • 00:14:42.240 --> 00:14:45.010
  • to use this illustration in an insensitive way.
  • 00:14:45.040 --> 00:14:48.210
  • But the Lord showed me the fallacy
  • 00:14:48.240 --> 00:14:51.100
  • of my thinking through this passage of scripture
  • 00:14:51.130 --> 00:14:54.070
  • and showed me something I've never seen.
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:58.020
  • Sometimes when a person has a miscarriage,
  • 00:14:58.050 --> 00:15:02.000
  • you might think -- have this thought --
  • 00:15:02.030 --> 00:15:05.210
  • If someone else has had this thought please understand,
  • 00:15:05.240 --> 00:15:08.100
  • the person having this thought is not trying to be insensitive,
  • 00:15:08.130 --> 00:15:10.110
  • it's just not thinking correctly.
  • 00:15:10.140 --> 00:15:13.190
  • But I've had the thought, "Well do they have other children?
  • 00:15:13.220 --> 00:15:19.160
  • At least they have other children."
  • 00:15:19.190 --> 00:15:23.260
  • Now here's what the Lord showed me.
  • 00:15:23.290 --> 00:15:26.170
  • Each child is unique.
  • 00:15:26.200 --> 00:15:32.090
  • If you lose a child, even if you have other children
  • 00:15:32.120 --> 00:15:35.250
  • you still grieve.
  • 00:15:35.280 --> 00:15:37.210
  • It still breaks your heart.
  • 00:15:37.240 --> 00:15:39.160
  • Because that child is unique.
  • 00:15:39.190 --> 00:15:44.040
  • Please hear me, you are unique.
  • 00:15:44.070 --> 00:15:45.210
  • You're unique to God.
  • 00:15:45.240 --> 00:15:52.150
  • See it's easy for us to think about that God
  • 00:15:52.180 --> 00:15:55.040
  • loves us as a group.
  • 00:15:55.070 --> 00:15:58.130
  • But I'm telling you that God loves you
  • 00:15:58.160 --> 00:16:00.290
  • as a person. Think about this.
  • 00:16:01.020 --> 00:16:04.200
  • He created all the animals, all the shape, and sizes,
  • 00:16:04.230 --> 00:16:10.250
  • and colors of all the different animals.
  • 00:16:10.280 --> 00:16:13.070
  • He created all the mountains,
  • 00:16:13.100 --> 00:16:16.130
  • and the valleys, and the streams.
  • 00:16:16.160 --> 00:16:18.040
  • He created all the stars, and the planets,
  • 00:16:18.070 --> 00:16:21.180
  • and the solar systems. He created it all.
  • 00:16:21.210 --> 00:16:24.080
  • So he has the ability and the knowledge.
  • 00:16:24.110 --> 00:16:27.090
  • To create every detail that we see around us.
  • 00:16:27.120 --> 00:16:33.140
  • So you need to know He has the ability
  • 00:16:33.170 --> 00:16:35.230
  • and the knowledge to know you personally.
  • 00:16:35.260 --> 00:16:40.030
  • If he can create every detail of every animal and every plant.
  • 00:16:40.060 --> 00:16:45.160
  • And they're all so different and they're all so unique.
  • 00:16:45.190 --> 00:16:49.080
  • He knows you.
  • 00:16:49.110 --> 00:16:51.110
  • And see and that's hard for us to believe; but, he knows you.
  • 00:16:51.140 --> 00:16:54.030
  • As a matter of fact, He created you
  • 00:16:54.060 --> 00:16:56.010
  • because there is no one that's living now
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:16:58.240
  • who or has every lived that has the exact DNA you have.
  • 00:16:58.270 --> 00:17:04.040
  • And God designed it.
  • 00:17:04.070 --> 00:17:07.010
  • And there's no one living now or that has ever lived
  • 00:17:07.040 --> 00:17:09.040
  • that has the exact finger print that you have.
  • 00:17:09.070 --> 00:17:14.100
  • And in your mother's womb God designed your fingerprint.
  • 00:17:14.130 --> 00:17:23.290
  • That's why the father was grieving
  • 00:17:24.020 --> 00:17:25.190
  • for the son that was lost.
  • 00:17:25.220 --> 00:17:28.040
  • Because he missed that son.
  • 00:17:28.070 --> 00:17:31.130
  • That's why He grieves when a person who's His sheep,
  • 00:17:31.160 --> 00:17:36.190
  • who belongs to Him becomes a prodigal.
  • 00:17:36.220 --> 00:17:40.100
  • Because that's His child.
  • 00:17:40.130 --> 00:17:42.270
  • His image is on that child.
  • 00:17:43.000 --> 00:17:48.130
  • So I entitled the message "The Father's Battle".
  • 00:17:48.160 --> 00:17:52.140
  • What's the father's battle?
  • 00:17:52.170 --> 00:17:53.290
  • Well I saw something in these 3 parables I've never seen before.
  • 00:17:54.020 --> 00:17:56.160
  • There's one major difference in the third parable
  • 00:17:56.190 --> 00:17:58.110
  • than the first two.
  • 00:17:58.140 --> 00:17:59.260
  • First one remember is a shepherd that loses his sheep.
  • 00:17:59.290 --> 00:18:03.140
  • Second one, a woman that loses a coin.
  • 00:18:03.170 --> 00:18:05.050
  • Third one, a father that loses a son.
  • 00:18:05.080 --> 00:18:07.170
  • OK, here's the thing that's different.
  • 00:18:07.200 --> 00:18:10.000
  • The shepherd goes and gets the sheep
  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:11.180
  • and brings it home.
  • 00:18:11.210 --> 00:18:15.100
  • The woman searches the house and finds the coin
  • 00:18:15.130 --> 00:18:17.130
  • and puts it back in her collection.
  • 00:18:17.160 --> 00:18:21.080
  • But the father didn't go get the son.
  • 00:18:21.110 --> 00:18:24.070
  • You wanna know why? Because the son has a choice.
  • 00:18:24.100 --> 00:18:31.020
  • You know what the father's battle is?
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:34.040
  • Waiting.
  • 00:18:34.070 --> 00:18:37.100
  • Waiting for his kids to come home.
  • 00:18:37.130 --> 00:18:42.110
  • See the reason the father didn't go get this son
  • 00:18:42.140 --> 00:18:45.020
  • and bring him home was because his body would have been home
  • 00:18:45.050 --> 00:18:47.150
  • but his heart wouldn't have been home.
  • 00:18:47.180 --> 00:18:51.010
  • Because God created you in His image.
  • 00:18:51.040 --> 00:18:54.020
  • We talk about God's will. God's will.
  • 00:18:54.050 --> 00:18:56.210
  • Since God has a will, you have a will.
  • 00:18:56.240 --> 00:18:59.180
  • So the father's battle is waiting for His kids
  • 00:18:59.210 --> 00:19:03.030
  • to come home; and you have to notice,
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:05.160
  • all three of them were looking.
  • 00:19:05.190 --> 00:19:07.080
  • The shepherd was looking, the woman was looking,
  • 00:19:07.110 --> 00:19:08.250
  • and the father was looking because he saw him
  • 00:19:08.280 --> 00:19:11.270
  • when he was still a great way off.
  • 00:19:12.000 --> 00:19:14.270
  • So he was still looking, he just couldn't go get him
  • 00:19:15.000 --> 00:19:19.170
  • and bring him home.
  • 00:19:19.200 --> 00:19:21.290
  • Because the difference is the son is a person,
  • 00:19:22.020 --> 00:19:24.010
  • he's not a sheep, and he's not a coin.
  • 00:19:24.040 --> 00:19:27.270
  • He's a person and he has a will and he can decide
  • 00:19:28.000 --> 00:19:30.140
  • whether he's gonna come home or not.
  • 00:19:30.170 --> 00:19:35.040
  • Years ago, when our Grand Prairie campus
  • 00:19:35.070 --> 00:19:37.290
  • was the Shady Grove church, I was an associate pastor there.
  • 00:19:38.020 --> 00:19:42.040
  • And one weekend I was preaching,
  • 00:19:42.070 --> 00:19:43.190
  • just kinda in the rotation to preach.
  • 00:19:43.220 --> 00:19:46.240
  • And Pastor Owen was the senior pastor.
  • 00:19:46.270 --> 00:19:51.210
  • So I don't even remember what I preached on,
  • 00:19:51.240 --> 00:19:53.110
  • I just remember this happening.
  • 00:19:53.140 --> 00:19:54.260
  • And I found out later how it happened
  • 00:19:54.290 --> 00:19:56.110
  • and what happened to precede it.
  • 00:19:56.140 --> 00:19:58.210
  • There was a man who'd been away from God for ten years,
  • 00:19:58.240 --> 00:20:02.130
  • wouldn't go to church, was angry at God.
  • 00:20:02.160 --> 00:20:05.250
  • Been a believer, but wouldn't go back to church.
  • 00:20:05.280 --> 00:20:09.130
  • For ten years.
  • 00:20:09.160 --> 00:20:11.070
  • Finally -- and his wife was a believer during this time
  • 00:20:11.100 --> 00:20:13.290
  • and loved the Lord, but he wouldn't go to church.
  • 00:20:14.020 --> 00:20:18.010
  • So finally, he said, "I need to go back to church."
  • 00:20:18.040 --> 00:20:21.270
  • And so they're driving that morning,
  • 00:20:22.000 --> 00:20:23.120
  • the same morning that I'm preaching
  • 00:20:23.150 --> 00:20:25.220
  • and they're driving to church and he pulled into a parking lot
  • 00:20:25.250 --> 00:20:28.180
  • and grabbed the steering wheel like this.
  • 00:20:28.210 --> 00:20:33.130
  • And she said, "Honey, what's wrong?"
  • 00:20:33.160 --> 00:20:37.220
  • He said, "I'm the prodigal son. I feel like the prodigal son."
  • 00:20:37.250 --> 00:20:43.110
  • She said, "Yeah but you're going home."
  • 00:20:43.140 --> 00:20:45.040
  • He said, "Yeah, but I don't know if He wants me back.
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:50.220
  • And I think He's gonna ask me where I've been
  • 00:20:50.250 --> 00:20:54.020
  • and what I've done.
  • 00:20:54.050 --> 00:20:57.090
  • And I'm not sure He wants me back."
  • 00:20:57.120 --> 00:21:00.110
  • And so she prayed for him.
  • 00:21:00.140 --> 00:21:03.010
  • They got back out on the road and came on to church.
  • 00:21:03.040 --> 00:21:05.190
  • I preached, I don't -- again, I don't even remember
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:07.040
  • what I preached on, but I just said
  • 00:21:07.070 --> 00:21:08.190
  • if you wanna come to the alter, if you need to come back to God,
  • 00:21:08.220 --> 00:21:12.070
  • or if you need to come to God, then come on.
  • 00:21:12.100 --> 00:21:16.230
  • And he came down and he stood right here.
  • 00:21:16.260 --> 00:21:19.140
  • And when I looked at him
  • 00:21:19.170 --> 00:21:21.040
  • I got this impression from the Lord.
  • 00:21:21.070 --> 00:21:24.150
  • And so I went over and I put my arms around him
  • 00:21:24.180 --> 00:21:26.020
  • and I gave him a hug; and he hugged me
  • 00:21:26.050 --> 00:21:27.170
  • and he started crying.
  • 00:21:27.200 --> 00:21:29.020
  • And then I said to him, "I don't know you,
  • 00:21:29.050 --> 00:21:33.080
  • but the Lord told me to tell you --
  • 00:21:33.110 --> 00:21:38.100
  • He said for me to say to you,
  • 00:21:38.130 --> 00:21:40.230
  • 'I know you feel like the prodigal,
  • 00:21:40.260 --> 00:21:43.290
  • but I don't care where you've been
  • 00:21:44.020 --> 00:21:46.050
  • and I don't care what you've done,
  • 00:21:46.080 --> 00:21:48.030
  • I just want My son back.
  • 00:21:48.060 --> 00:21:51.010
  • I just want My son back.' "
  • 00:21:51.040 --> 00:21:53.050
  • [Applause]
  • 00:21:53.080 --> 00:22:00.240
  • I'm telling ya. Jesus died for what you did.
  • 00:22:00.270 --> 00:22:05.080
  • He died for where you been.
  • 00:22:05.110 --> 00:22:07.080
  • And the Holy Spirit has turned the light on
  • 00:22:07.110 --> 00:22:11.010
  • so you can get home.
  • 00:22:11.040 --> 00:22:14.100
  • And the Father's waiting
  • 00:22:14.130 --> 00:22:16.270
  • for his son or his daughter to come home.
  • 00:22:17.000 --> 00:22:19.130
  • He's waiting.
  • 00:22:19.160 --> 00:22:20.280
  • I want you to bow your head and close your eyes.
  • 00:22:21.010 --> 00:22:27.250
  • I want you to just take a moment and say, "Lord,
  • 00:22:27.280 --> 00:22:30.090
  • what are you saying to me through this message?"
  • 00:22:30.120 --> 00:22:35.210
  • I really believe there are some people
  • 00:22:35.240 --> 00:22:38.130
  • that just need to come home in one area of your life.
  • 00:22:38.160 --> 00:22:45.000
  • That's why I feel like the Lord spoke to me.
  • 00:22:45.030 --> 00:22:48.210
  • I feel like there are people who would say,
  • 00:22:48.240 --> 00:22:50.060
  • "I wouldn't classify myself as a prodigal,
  • 00:22:50.090 --> 00:22:54.090
  • but there's an area of my life.
  • 00:22:54.120 --> 00:22:58.180
  • In that area, I need to come home.
  • 00:22:58.210 --> 00:23:02.070
  • I need to come back to God in that area."
  • 00:23:02.100 --> 00:23:05.050
  • We want to pray for you. And we want to pray with you.
  • 00:23:05.080 --> 00:23:09.220
  • If you're going through any type of a difficulty.
  • 00:23:09.250 --> 00:23:12.010
  • Maybe you're not a prodigal that needs to come home
  • 00:23:12.040 --> 00:23:15.240
  • in an area, but maybe you're going through a difficulty
  • 00:23:15.270 --> 00:23:18.160
  • with your job, your finances, your marriage, your family,
  • 00:23:18.190 --> 00:23:22.120
  • your health.
  • 00:23:22.150 --> 00:23:24.040
  • We all go through difficulties so don't ever be embarrassed
  • 00:23:24.070 --> 00:23:27.160
  • to ask for prayer at church.
  • 00:23:27.190 --> 00:23:30.090
  • Don't ever feel like I'm a big bad sinner
  • 00:23:30.120 --> 00:23:32.180
  • if I go ask for prayer. Because we all need prayer.
  • 00:23:32.210 --> 00:23:34.160
  • Everyone here needs prayer.
  • 00:23:34.190 --> 00:23:36.110
  • I asked for prayer right before this service
  • 00:23:36.140 --> 00:23:38.230
  • for my voice and for the message and for the service.
  • 00:23:38.260 --> 00:23:42.110
  • So we all need prayer, I asked for prayer.
  • 00:23:42.140 --> 00:23:44.290
  • So whatever area, you'll need prayer in.
  • 00:23:45.020 --> 00:23:48.190
  • Here's a burden on my heart, if there's an area
  • 00:23:48.220 --> 00:23:54.010
  • in which you need to come home you know it, right?
  • 00:23:54.040 --> 00:23:58.040
  • Lord I pray that you'll right now give courage
  • 00:23:58.070 --> 00:24:01.220
  • to every person who needs prayer in any area,
  • 00:24:01.250 --> 00:24:06.030
  • in Jesus' name. Amen.
  • 00:24:06.060 --> 00:24:08.230
