The ProdigalMarch 20, 2019
"And when he came to himself, he said, 'How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.' And he arose, and came to his father" (Luke 15:17-20).
Jesus gave me this example from the New Testament of these four principles being followed. Notice that the first thing the prodigal son did was, he said it!
Then, he did it. He climbed out of that hog pasture, and he started down the road toward home. Next, he received it. His father saw him coming from far off, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. His father said, "Bring the robe and put it on him. Bring the ring and put it on his finger. Bring shoes and put them on his feet. Kill the fatted calf."
Then they had a celebration and told it.
Confession: I know that God will do anything I believe Him to do which is in line with His Word. And I know how to write my own ticket with God. First, I say it. Next, I do it. Then, I receive it. Finally, I tell it!
