The month of September becomes a very special moment for every Father. On Sunday, 3rd of September 2017, we had the chance to celebrate Father’s day in our church. The combined Sunday service between rock city and south campus create strong ambience and unity in our church especially it is also to celebrate the Father’s day. On that day, the celebration of Father’s day was very simple yet it was very meaningful, we have normal service and at the end it was closed by the singing performance from Sunday school kids and sharing a short message for their father. The robust message focusing on the Father’s figure that Pastor Denni shared, giving us a deeper understanding and new perspective on the parable of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32), where we usually miss the central lesson especially the central character is not the son but the father.
This parable shows the deep love of a father for both of His children and Illustrating God as the Father, Jesus demonstrates a parental love that is forgiving. Like the prodigal son, when we repent and confess our sins and come to the God in faith, we will learn of and experience the love that is in THE FATHER’S HEART. The father’s gracious reception of his son meant that he would be given a place in THE FATHER’S HOUSE.
