Spencer Rabourn shares his favorite parable on Youth Sunday 2017.
Luke 15:3-7 The lost sheep is a lesson in our value to God. Luke 15:8-10 The lost coin is a lesson in the importance of God’s reputation. Luke 15:11-32 The lost son is a lesson in God’s love and man’s heart. All three stories are filled with hope and reflect God’s desire to be with us for eternity. And that’s why “sinners” are drawn to Jesus!
