Family Members and Other Animals  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 31–46
Summary: This passage is not a summons to get out there and “do good” — or else! It is a word-picture of what “salvation” looks like. It is not an instruction as to how we should earn salvation, but a demonstration of the results of a salvation already received in the heart.

If I Had a Million Dollars ...  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 14–30
Summary: With the parable of the talents, Jesus makes a comparison to the kingdom of heaven. How the slaves used the talents entrusted to them speaks to 1) the nature of the kingdom of God; 2) their understanding of who the master is; and 3) their responsibility regarding the talents they had been given.

The Ultimate Survivor Show  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 14–30
Summary: In suggesting that humans might be voted off the earth on the basis of what we have done to it, Mark Twain puts the message of the story of the talents into graphic perspective. We have built many impressive earthly kingdoms. But it is the kingdom of God upon the earth that we have been commissioned to build. We have not only been commissioned. We have been empowered. The God who calls us to build has given us both blocks and the blueprint. If God has voted us in, then we must not by our actions or inaction vote ourselves out.

The Truth Comes Out at Last  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 31–46
Summary:  The final judgment will reveal the truth about God and the world for all to see. In Matthew’s parable of the judgment, the ruler of creation is shown to be the one who identifies himself with those in need. That is a pattern shown to us in Christ. And the value of our lives will be judged by how faithful we have been to that pattern.

Distinguishing Marks  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 31–46
Summary: Today’s text offers a glimpse of true discipleship. Serving God is about serving others. When we feed the hungry, we feed Christ. When we clothe the naked, we put a cloak on Christ. When we offer the thirsty a drink, we give Christ a drink. Our acts of mercy matter to God. Our acts of mercy are ways in which we can offer praise and thanksgiving to God. Furthermore, our acts of mercy are what set us apart as true disciples.

Crowning the King  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 31–46
Summary:  Jesus' parable of the Last Judgment is illustrated with a story. A woman wakes up realizing that she's been told to crown the King but has no idea where to find him. In her search that day, she encounters a beggar and an old woman being thrown out on the street, and uses the crown she's been given to get food for one and housing for the other. At the end of the day she feels that she's failed in the task she was given, but is reminded of the King's words to those on his right in the text.

Put It in the Bank  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 14–30
Summary: This tale told to those early disciples lands on us just as hard as it did on them. It forces us to ask ourselves, What kind of servants shall we be? What has God given us to use? How shall we use it? What accounting will we give the Master, when he returns?

One, Shy of Burying It  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 14–30
Summary:  We as a church need to see our “talents” not so much as the “gifts and graces” of individual members, but as our physical assets, and to ask ourselves if we are simply “burying” them, or using them in a way that gives physical expression to the kingdom that we know is coming.

Summary: Though the oil in the parable of 10 bridesmaids tells us of the importance of preparedness for the return of Jesus, it is also symbolic of the way faith sustains us in the here and now. Among the daily blessing God gives are character development, guilt relief, direction for life and the knowledge of Whom to thank for it all.
