SERMON
The Father
This represents God and his eternal love and forgiveness for us. No matter your wrong doings he is eternally ready to take you back just if you accept your mistake and seek forgiveness with the aim of not doing it again. The feast represents the great joy in heaven when a sinner retraces his step.

THE PRODIGAL SON
This represents all of us who have come short of the Glory of God. We used our inheritance (gifts,wisdom talents,money, beauty) to seek after worldly things and valour instead of using it to work for the Kingdom of God. If you are still in this category always seek to go back to the Father,never feel you have gone to astray for him to forgive you because no matter your sin he is always ready and happy to do so.

THE PRODIGAL SON'S BROTHER

This represents the righteous people who question God as to why a recent convert should be so favored. Some will say how can this sinner of yesterday be prophesying when I who has been faithful since I was born don't have the gift etc. Always remember that God has a reason for everything, whomever he loves,he loves, whomever he favors he favors, always rejoice with a brethren who is witnessing God's favor. STAY AWAY FROM SPIRITUAL JEALOUSY. It does no good. Use your gift and allow others use theirs.

THE FARMER

This is one person people never discuss in this parable. It represents the world and "fake Christians" in it.The Jews usually have nothing to do with pigs,they don't eat it and don't touch it.Taking care of pigs simply means he sees himself lowest and can no longer address himself as a Jew or a part of God's chosen people. Some people when they meet a brethren who is passing through had times, they introduce them to more sinful ways killing the little love of God they have in their soul,the piggery here could be prostitution,armed robbery, kidnapping, encouraging a student to sleep with a lecturer for higher grades, encouraging a civil servant to accept bribes, telling a Christian to seek ungodly ways to solve issues like barrenness or to get married, telling a fallen brethren to commit abortion in other to remove the child of her sinful ways etc. Unlike the farmer, our duty when we see a fallen Christian is to bring him back to God not take him away.
