Central Passage
Luke 15:18-32
Subject
The Reaction of the Prodigal Son's Brother
Description

 THE OLDER BROTHER:

  • Didn’t know the Father – Didn’t know him in an intimate way. None of us know the Heavenly Father unless we have trusted Jesus as our Savior. John 1:11-13

 

  • Because he didn’t know his Father, he didn’t love his Father – If we know the Father, His Spirit abides in us. His Spirit makes us love the Father, and the Lord Jesus.

 

  • Because he didn’t love his Father, he didn’t love his brother. Think of who you love or loved because your father or mother loved them. 1 John 4:7-8

 

  • Because he didn’t love his brother, he didn’t care about his brother. (Hence the shunning.) The older brother didn’t go looking for his younger brother.  1 John 4:20-5:2

 

  • Because he didn’t care about his brother, he lived in bitterness. Listen to his tirade: Luke 15:28-30, Ephesians 4:30-32

 

  • Because he lived in bitterness, his Father was seeking another prodigal son (and missing the party!).  Luke 15:28, 31-32

Is the Father missing the party because He is seeking you?
