The Miracles of Jesus – The Parable of the Two Sons: The Third Son

Text: Matthew 21:28-32

          Dictionary Definition of Obedience

        compliance with an order, request, or law or submission to another's authority

                               

          The first son:

        was repentant

        changed his mind from an unfruitful and dangerous path.

        aligned with His Father, and had peace and favour.

          This is a desirable state as we can always retrace our steps to Jesus at least 10 minutes before we die. However,

        Some die unprepared in plane crashes or vehicle accidents unprepared.

It is good to ensure you are saved, your name is in the book of life, you have the Holy Spirit abiding in you and have assurance of eternal life.                                             

          Teachability and trust always leads to total obedience.
- Ed Townsend 

          I don't see success as the goal.
Obedience is the goal.
- Jerry B. Jenkins

          Obedience is the fruit of faith.
- Christina Rossetti

          The second son:

          acted as a deceiver.

          made His dad believe he was going to be there for him…Don’t worry dad, I’ll take care of it but he never went.

          there are some who are poised to disappoint you, instead of coming clean they make you let down your defences and preparation, with the ultimate goal of disappointing you.

          They will be disappointed in Jesus name.

          The second son needs prayer, these normally start like the first son, fully obedient like Diotrephes and Demetrius. (3 John 9 -12)

          Obedience is an act of faith; disobedience is the result of unbelief.
- Edwin Louis Cole

I know the power obedience has of making things easy which seem impossible.
- Saint Teresa    

          The third son:

        volunteered to go and went.

        Jesus, the third son who narrated the parable was fully obedient.

        He did not initially say no and later yes like the first son.

        He did not say yes and later no like the second son.

           We are to be like the third son…fully obedient (1 John 2:3-6, 1 John 4:17)

                                                                                                               

And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. (John 8:29)                                                                                                     

 

Prayer:

          Give thanks.

          If you are not sure your name is in the book of life, take the prayers on the New Life page.

          The grace for obedience, give to me in Jesus name.

          Father, strengthen the hearts of families who have lost loved ones who died in obedience defending our peace and safety.

          Lord, provide for these families.

          Lord, bless and keep our soldiers and all soldiers all over the world.

          The grace to be silent, Lord give to me in Jesus name.

          I will prevail over every opposition in Jesus name.

          Lord, you are the man of war, fight my battles in Jesus name.

          Promotion, increase, favour, positive progression is my portion in Jesus mighty name.

          Every plan of shame, disgrace, stagnancy, retrogression, ill health for me and my family scatter in Jesus name.

          I destroy every evil work against me in Jesus name.

          Personal prayer points.
