The Other Son


This is a quick lesson done by Lance Brewer

Luke 15:11-32

The Story of the prodigal Son is a well known story.. And rightly so. It speaks of a young man who went to the world and lived a riotous life.. And when he hit rock bottom… he came home. Thus making it a great example of someone getting saved after they had lived a life of sin.

Luke 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

So that begs the question —— Who Needs Repentance?

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Let me show you a comparison that sometimes gets overlooked in this powerful story.

Luke 15:11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:

The other son was the “good son”

  • He was the one in the fields making sure things got done
  • He was the one who made sure the servants we out tending the sheep and cows
  • He was the one who stayed faithful
  • He didn’t take the family fortune and the family name and throw it all away
  • He wasn’t the one who ended up eating the pigs leftovers!


Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

Regardless of how you were raised you still need Christ.

  • I was born into a Christian Home.
  • I have Never tasted of Alcohol
  • I have never cussed or heard my parents cussed
  • I have never taken illegal drugs…


Yet; I still needed a Saviour!

Proverbs 24:9a The thought of foolishness is sin:

Even though I have not done the big sins of the world… According to the Bible I was a sinner and needed a Saviour…


  • This Morning I ask the question… Which one of the sons are you?
  • Are you the one who came home from the world?
  • Or the “good son” who came in from the fields?
  • Both need salvation.
  • Have you trusted in Christ today?
