Morning Message of Motivation

The Compassion of Christ: 36
Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

Christ demonstrated His great compassion fo sinners, when He told the “Parable of the Prodigal Son.” Jesus’s compassion attracted sinners to hear Him. His messages were not condemnatory.
John 3:17 NKJV
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

The Jewish religious leaders ostracised and shunned sinners. On the contrary, Jesus shared fellowship with sinners.
Luke 15:1 NKJV
“Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him.”

This created a conflict. The Pharisees complained loudly that Jesus was eating with sinners.
Luke 15:2 NKJV
“And the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, “This Man receives sinners and eats with them.”

Jesus responded to their criticism with three parables. The first was the Parable of the Lost Sheep, the second was, the Parable of the Lost Coin, and the final one was the Parable of the Prodigal Son.

•The purpose of the parable of the Prodigal Son.
Christ’s purpose for giving this parable was to explain His mission on earth to save sinners.
Luke 19:10 NKJV
“for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

•The main characters of this parable.
The “Parable of the Prodigal Son” has three main characters, the father, the elder son and the younger son who became the Prodigal son.

To err is human, and everyone who has ever made a mistake appreciates the opportunity for a “Second chance.”

May you have the divine opportunity to repair all past damages and mistakes. May you boldly declare your total redemption in Jesus’s name.
