Kingdom Truths from Jesus’ Parables - “God’s Gracious Pay For Joining His Workers!”

4Jan

The Parable of the Vineyard Workers - How many times have you heard children objecting like this - "Hey! He got more than me! That's not FAIR!!" And then the fight is on. When we receive what we haven't earned, that's grace. When someone decides to do something nice for another "just because", that's grace. Some Christians serve the Lord for many years before they die and enter God's heavenly realm. Others live like hell on earth only to give their last remaining few years, months, days, even minutes to the Lord and receive God's kingdom in the same full measure that Jesus' long-time servants receive. This parable is not about how much we do, but that we join the kingdom. Yes, there are rewards that come to us for what we have done as disciples in this life. But ALL believers receiver the same kingdom regardless of when in life they embrace Jesus. Take a listen and be encouraged!
