015. The Prodigal Son Returns


What does having a call on your life look like? The simple answer to this question is to follow our discussion with Reuben Johnson. He took us on his trip as a Prodigal Son being called by God.

Reuben took us on a walk of his past and present by taking us through his memories.

  • Grew up in the church of Christ and had no other teaching than walking with the LORD
    • Grew up in the church (mom, grandmother, great grandmother, grandfather, etc)
    • The family did everything revolving around the church
    • Dad not in the body of Christ
    • His dad would go on and off with his family, but the attitude of the members turned me off
  • Ministering to his dad
    • Helping mom by lay out dad’s suit
    • He and his mom had to be the example his father needed as Christian
    • His dad loves how he is raising his children in the admonition of the Lord
    • His children would call their grandad and tell him how service was 
  • Falling off as a Christian
    • His mom did not fall off, but she took a route that was not so repetitive 
    • Reuben starting venturing out as a youth 
    • Reub on Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri and Sat (doing him)
    • Lost everything while in College
    • Became Baptist because he attended an HBCU that had Baptist principles
  • Married his best friend
    • Met his wife his junior year of college
    • His wife (back bone and rib) was a PK and would not get involved with him until he got his spiritual life together
    • She held him accountable regarding his walk with the Lord
