Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Celebrating Changed Lives

August 9th, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships draws a lesson of love from the heart of the Father toward a Prodigal Son.

In Luke 15, the Prodigal Son returned home after squandering his wealth in a distant country.

His father embraced him with open arms and kisses. Then, he did something extraordinary. He called for a celebration.

He said in Luke 15:22, ‘“Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.”

Luke 15 is all about celebrating the lost being found. This is what happens in heaven whenever someone turns to the Lord.

Celebrating changed lives by the Gospel is a key element for thriving relationships that honor God.
