Next up in our Tailgate Series, Dr. Greg Beechaum, Pastor of Little Zion Baptist Church in Powhatan, VA, challenges us to see ourselves in the story of the Prodigal Son in Episode 64 of The Noble Man Podcast.
Pastor Greg challenged himself first when he looked at his life over this pandemic year and felt like he could do more.
“Lord, what do you want me to do? Where do you want me to go? Going to church is not enough.”
When we look at the Prodigal Son in Luke 15, we see a man who demanded his inheritance before the proper time.
“Sometimes we desire from God big things, but we don’t want to be responsible over the little things.”
But take a look at the father’s response. Before his son could even apologize, he runs out to meet him with hugs, kisses, a ring, a robe, and a feast. “He meets him right where he is.”
The Father wants us to love others in the same way. The men of God need to stand up and say, “I’m going to meet you right where you are.”
If we don’t get the men back, who will?
Listen in as Pastor Greg asks us to think about the one young man, neighbor, or coworker who needs renewal, restoration, and knowledge of the resurrection.
