7 The Prodigal’s New Clothes Key Text

8 The Prodigal’s New Clothes Initial Words {283}

9 The Prodigal’s New Clothes Quick Look 1. The Lost Robe (Luke 15:19a) 2. The New Robe (Luke 15:19b) 3. The Best Robe (Luke 15:22)

10 The Prodigal’s New Clothes 1. The Lost Robe

11 Same Parents, Same Food {280} choice come with consequences

12 Who among us, hasn’t been really sorry, not so much for our sins but for the consequences, especially when caught? Even the hardest pagan is going to be sorry he committed adultery if he picked up some sexually transmitted disease. There’s nothing Christian about sorrow for the pain that comes from our wrong choices, is there? 1.The Lost Robe Spreading His Wings {282}

13 Sometimes we need the bad consequences of our actions to awaken us to the reality of our sins, don’t we? Only after the suffering comes from our actions do we truly repent of those actions and not just regret the results. Why not choose to avoid the sin and spare yourself all the sorrow and the repentance that will follow? 1.The Lost Robe Spreading His Wings {282}

14 The Prodigal’s New Clothes 2. The New Clothe

15 purposely turned away 2. The New Clothe You Can Go Home Again {284} The good news of this parable is that even in the cases of those who turned their backs on Him after knowing His goodness and love, God is still willing to restore them to the position that they once held in His covenant family.

16 The son himself had to make the decision to return. There was no compulsion on his father’s part. God forces no one to be obedient; if He didn’t force Satan to be obedient in heaven or Adam and Eve in Eden, why do it now, long after the consequences of disobedience have wreaked havoc on humanity? 2. The New Clothe You Can Go Home Again {284}

17 The Prodigal’s New Clothes 3. The Best Robe

18 The Robe of Righteousness {286}

19 He probably didn’t come home dressed in the finest of apparel, to say the least. After all, he had been feeding pigs up until then. The contrast, no doubt, between what he was wearing when he was embraced by his father and the robe that was placed on him couldn’t have been starker (notice, too, the father didn’t wait until he was cleaned up before throwing himself on him). 3. The Best Robe The Robe of Righteousness {286}

20 This shows, among other things, that the restoration, at least between the father and the son, was at that moment complete. If we see “the best robe” as the robe of Christ’s righteousness, then all that was needed was provided for right then and there. If that’s not a symbol of salvation, what is? 3. The Best Robe The Robe of Righteousness {286}

21 The Prodigal’s New Clothes Final Words {288}
