  1. "Jesus' Scandalous Table Manners: A Father's Day thought revisited”

     

    “’My son,’ …, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’” Luke 15.11-32"

     

    A few years ago, four to be exact, a good Christian brother in Christ wrote these comments in preparation for his Father’s Day sermon. Due to Father’s Day quickly approaching (this coming Sunday June 16th, 2019), I thought it would be appropriate to revisit his thoughts.



    "Luke 15.11-32 invites us to realize that we cannot simultaneously love our Father and despise His beloved children, our sisters and brothers.  We simply cannot, no matter how far any of us have strayed: whether far away (like the prodigal son), or close to home (like the older brother); whether out in the world, or even right here in the church.  The only way - THE ONLY WAY - to work out our relationship with Father God is to work out our relationships one with another.  What happens in Vegas might very well stay in Vegas, but what happens at Jesus' Table (meaning the forgiveness that can only occur in God’s church) doesn't stay at Jesus' Table: it shapes everything else." Please read Luke 15:11-32 to help understand a father’s heart toward his lost son, his older brother and symbolically for us.



    A Father's Day Prayer from Luke 15.11-32: "How scandalous, shocking, beautiful, and amazing is your grace, Father God: that you have entered our world in Jesus, Messiah of Israel and Lord of the Whole World, to welcome and to fellowship with sinners, outcasts, strangers, and prodigal children like us.  As we fellowship at table with you and with one another, sharing in Jesus' broken body and poured-out blood, please forgive the self-righteous spirit of the 'Elder Brother' and the 'Pharisee' in each one of us.  Please fill us anew with your amazing grace on this Father's Day: that we might become more like our Heavenly Father and True Elder Brother; that we might recklessly embrace those who are hurting, outcast, and oppressed; that we might graciously and scandalously welcome one another just as you graciously and scandalously welcome us.  We pray in the name of Jesus, through whom we are all freely welcomed into the great messianic banquet celebration in your kingdom, amen."

     

    Happy Father’s Day,
