Don’t get stuck

* Story of the Prodigal Son
3 Stages of our Spiritual Journey
1. Journey of the surprised son
2. Journey of the better brother
3. Journey of the forgiving father

* We are on a journey of a surprise

* Prodigal son – deserves punishment, but instead his father gave him embrace and feast
– God gives you more than what you deserve
– God’s mercy is God’s loving embrace

* When you think that you are not worthy, God calls you
– There are great people in the bible not because they were great but they have a great   God
-> because of Gods mercy

* God will embrace you

* It’s not about you. It’s about my love for you

* Miracles are there but you have to believe to see it

* We are swimming in the ocean of miracles

* Open yourself to receive his miracles –> Gods grace

* Believe and join the party
– The better brother was rigid, self righteous, judgemental

* God allows crisis so that we will be humbled
* God allows people to fail you
* God allows you to doubt and ask. it humbles us

* Forgiving Father
– God’s name is mercy
– Through the eyes of God – a loving eyes

* The stand of the church is to forgive and love

* May the people know Christians to be loving people, loving the dinners and being merciful
