In this message we explore the parable Jesus told the religious leaders about two sons. One son initially said that he would obey his father, but he did not. The other son initially disobeyed, but regretted his choice and then did the father’s will. Jesus told this parable to point out that the “irreligious” people- tax collectors and prostitutes, were repenting and entering the kingdom of God, while many of the religious leaders were not.
Ultimately, the religious leaders did not turn from their sin. They had heard the message of John the Baptist, and they had heard Jesus telling them of God’s kingdom of grace.
Are we heeding to the same call for repentance today?
