  • The First And The Last

    Contributed by Jeff Hatos on Jun 6, 2019

    Jesus told His disciples the parable of the workers in the vineyard; does this still hold value today?

    The First and the Last Matthew 20:1-16 For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire men to work in his vineyard. He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard. “About the third hour he went out and saw others standing more

    One of the major reason for our hearts to become ungrateful is our sense of Entitlement

    Today we celebrate as Thanksgiving Day. The topic of Thanksgiving is very familiar. The Bible speaks volumes about the topic. The Psalms are resplendent with affirmations of thanksgiving to the Lord for His good ness and mercy. “Oh Give Thanks to the Lord…” rings out loud and clear in this book. We more

  • The Unfairness Of Grace

    Contributed by Alvan Lewis on Jan 7, 2019

    A fresh look at an old story Jesus told in Matthew 20 to see how Amazing Grace really is

    There’s a Mexican market in our city. My wife and I have shopped there. Not only is it a place to shop for food; it is also a meeting place for Mexican workers. So very early one morning about this time of the year the owner of the Grey Monk Winery sent his foreman to the Mexican market to pick up more

    Reading: Matthew chapter 20 verses 1-16. One of the first expressions we learn as children is, “That’s not fair.” • One thing that life seems to teach us, is that this statement is right; • Life doesn’t seem to be fair. In fact it seems to be quite more

  • Of Grace And Envy

    Contributed by Greg Nance on Oct 17, 2010
    based on 4 ratings

    How is the Kingdom of heaven to be understood in light of laboring for Christ while the world enjoys the pleasures of sin? The parable of Jesus in Matthew 20 is helpful here.

    Matthew 20:1-16 Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard Jesus introduces this parable saying that the kingdom of heaven is like this. That's an impressive, if not disturbing introduction to this particular parable for many reasons. I believe that the kingdom of heaven in Matthew's gospel more

  • Motive For Involvement

    Being someone who grumbles or complains is detrimental to our spiritual well-being. Let's see what we can do about that.

    STOP RIDING ON THE COMPLAIN TRAIN Last week my sermon was on making sure we don't lose our song. Jesus put a new song in our hearts-a song of salvation, a song of joy, a song of thanksgiving. But when we suffer hardship or loss it's easy to lose our song. But we need to maintain our song when it's more

    God's overwhelming generosity is difficult to comprehend, though every Christian has experienced that generosity. We must avoid attempting to cast God in our image, learning instead of the extravagant grace with which He showers each of us.

    “The kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. After agreeing with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And going out about the third hour he saw others standing idle in the marketplace, and to more
