The Power of Love

A young man slouches, dejected, before the home of his childhood and youth. He has returned from a life of recklessness and rebellion, hoping that in some way his father will accept him back. Based upon a well-known parable of Jesus, the second quarter’s series of studies illustrates in a moving modern setting the father’s gracious response. And the study of this quarter addresses the issues that bring about this sense of need to return home to our heavenly Father—and the Father’s loving reaction to our return. The resources on this page are provided as enrichment to the study of the printed Bible study guide “In Step With Jesus: The Power of Love.”
