  • Luke 15:17-24
  • Galatians 4:1-7

Pastor Gene’s sermon delves into the concepts of being an orphan, a slave, and ultimately a son or daughter in relation to our connection with God. He emphasizes the importance of understanding our true identity in Christ and the nature of God’s love and grace. Through the story of the prodigal son, Pastor Gene illustrates God’s compassionate nature and willingness to embrace us, even when we feel unworthy or have strayed away. He highlights the dangers of adopting an orphan or slave mentality, where one feels disconnected or tries to earn God’s love through works. Instead, we should embrace our identity as sons and daughters of God, knowing that you are chosen, loved, and accepted unconditionally.
