Jake Warren - Becoming Love

Photo of the painting online: Jake spoke about the Parable of the Prodigal Son, inspired by Henri Nouwen's book. We may by and large identify with the Elder Brother or Prodigal Son, as Christians, but our journey is destined towards becoming the Father in this parable. The free expression of love, with "treasures stored in heaven," "imitating God as beloved children". Read the Parable of the Prodigal Son: Other scripture references: Luke 13:20-21 He also asked, “What else is the Kingdom of God like? It is like the yeast a woman used in making bread. Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour, it permeated every part of the dough.” Matthew 6:19-21 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. Ephesians 5:1-2 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. 1 John 4:18-19 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. 19 We love because he first loved us.
