    Unwavering Love and Divine Grace: Lessons from the Prodigal Son

    Unwavering Love and Divine Grace: Lessons from the Prodigal Son

    This episode isn't just about the son who left and squandered his wealth, but also about the father's unwavering love and the lessons we can draw from his patience and forgiveness. 

    We'll explore how the father's actions, driven by immense love, defied societal norms and expectations, offering a powerful analogy for divine grace.

     

    We'll take you through personal anecdotes that resonate with the parable, from the thrill of skipping routines as a child to the realization of the emotional impact of our actions on our parents. The story of the prodigal son offers profound insights into the radical compassion and forgiveness shown by the father, who welcomes his son back with open arms despite societal conventions. Drawing parallels between biblical narratives and our own experiences, we'll highlight the tension between outward appearances and internal motivations, revealing the boundless nature of true compassion and forgiveness.

     

    Whether you've grown up with the parable of the prodigal son or are hearing it for the first time, this episode invites you to embrace the grace and unconditional love that awaits you. Through these stories, we hope to offer a message of hope, forgiveness, and the deep bonds that define family, encouraging you to come home to the love that never gives up on you.

    Navigating Faith and Freedom: From Biblical Truths to Modern Challenges

     

    What happens when faith meets the modern world? Join us as we continue our series, "In God We Trust?" where we explore the boundless love of Jesus Christ and the essential practice of repentance. Drawing on 1 Timothy 2:1-4 and 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2, we stress the importance of praying for political leaders to cultivate peace and ensure the gospel can spread unimpeded.

    Travel with us through personal memories of growing up in America and the former Yugoslavia, contrasting the freedoms we often take for granted with life under dictatorship. We reflect on the changing public perception of Donald Trump from 2013 to his presidency, urging a critical eye towards media narratives and the influential forces at play. Our stories serve as a reminder of the preciousness of liberty and the importance of safeguarding it for future generations.

    We also examine the rise of 'wokeism' and its clash with biblical truth. Drawing from John 17:17 and Orwell's "1984," we discuss the immutable nature of truth and the dangers of subjective realities. The conversation extends to contrasting Christianity with the so-called LGBT religion, highlighting the importance of biblical teachings and spiritual discipline. Connect with CityLight Church as we remind you of God's immense love and the significance of standing firm in your faith. Listen in and feel encouraged as we navigate these complex cultural and spiritual landscapes together.

Thankful for City Light

I have been listening to City Lights Podcast for over a year . I have been so blessed by this ministry . I live in Philadelphia but City Light is also my ministry . I will be sewing seed at City Light in the very near future 🙏🏾

The most welcoming church!

My experience at Citylight has been a blessing. My story of how I came here may sound unbelievable but is truly the work of Lord. I have a sister Jackie who lives in Sarasota Fl. She went to a conference in Jacksonville Fl. There was a man and his daughter sitting next to her. As she looked up she saw our father looking at the man and just laughing his loving laugh. My sister told the man the story. He and his daughter are from NY, she asked what church they attended and they said Citylight. My sister said daddy picked my chuch! So of course I went. I didn’t know who was the man or his daughter- he prayed for me twice. God is good - it was him ! Thank u Maurico and Michelle. Be blessed. Nothing is a coincidence! Please attend a service!

crrrllllll ,

Listening from the West Coast, with love.

Bojan, Mike, Mohammed, Sherman... all such anointed & wise leaders/teachers of CityLight Church. I aways get so excited when I see that new podcasts have been posted, especially because I know I get to listen to all of them on my long commute to school & back. Saying I have learned so much from this church is an absolute understatement; I’m so grateful for this church. They’ve helped transform my understanding of what it is to have a close relationship with God. I can’t tell you how many times a new podcast by CityLight has popped up where they’re teaching on exactly what I’m going through. Whether it’s dealing with darkness, struggling with finances, or family issues. This church is so bold, they’re not afraid to cover certain subjects and I love that about them. I always feel so excited to share what I’ve learned to friends and family after hearing these messages, as they often teach from angles that are always so mind blowing. I feel the love from who they are as a church family from all the way over here, on the west coast (they’re in NY). Not only are these pastors passionate about Jesus, but they’re hilarious & they’re relatable. Keep up the good work for the Kingdom, CityLight! You guys are amazing.
