Common Grace  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 20: 1–16
Summary: This parable Jesus told describes a vineyard owner who hired workers at different times of the day, but paid them all the same. Sometimes when God blesses people in ways that he has not blessed us, it’s easy to feel a bit jealous. When this happens, we are admonished to put away childish attitudes, and to rejoice with those who rejoice. We should never lose sight of the many ways God has kept his promises and agreements with us.

Summary: The parable of the generous vineyard owner highlights two biblical truths that often manifest themselves simultaneously: First, God is fair and will keep his promises to those who have devoted their entire lives to him.

It’s Not Fair!  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 20: 1–16
Matthew 20: 1–16a for LFM
Summary: In Jesus’ parable, the laborers who had worked all day in the vineyard grumbled because those who had worked only one hour got the same pay. They thought that it wasn’t fair. Usually that’s a legitimate complaint, but here the owner of the vineyard represents God, and God’s unfairness is really good news. It means that all of us get much more than we deserve. Those who respond faithfully to the gospel enter the kingdom of heaven free, and can work to share the message of God’s “unfairness” with others.
