This Sunday we’ll see that nothing in the vineyard of our Lord truly belongs to us. Our God is letting us use the gifts he’s given us for his glory. At any time he can ask for those gifts back. One of those gifts is money. There are a few places that our money must go – the government and our God are two of those places that Jesus will address this Sunday. We close out our series In the Vineyard this Sunday as we talk about financial stewardship.
What does good fruit look like? I think by the time a person can drive they have a clue about picking produce from the store, but what does good fruit look like in the life of a Christian. We’re going to jump back into the vineyard with our Lord this week and see what he has to say on the topic.
This Sunday we are In The Vineyard with Jesus. We’ll look at the stewardship of what our God has given us. Last Sunday we looked at our time – it’s a valuable commodity. This Sunday we’ll look at our work. What do you do? Is one job more important than another? Does our God have anything to say about it?
This month we continue our set of sermon series using the Gospel of Matthew. We will be In The Vineyard with Jesus. We’ll look at the stewardship of what our God has given us. In this first week, we’ll consider our use of time. It’s a valuable commodity in our fast-paced society. How can we make time for our God and what he thinks is important?
“One holy name she blesses, Partakes one holy food, And to one hope she presses, With ev’ry grace endued…” What does it look like to forgive someone? That might be an easy question, until the hurt hits close to home. This Sunday we’ll consider Jesus command to forgive. We have the perfect example in Jesus. More importantly we have the perfect motivation when we look at how he forgave us.
“Though with a scornful wonder The world sees her oppressed, By schisms rent asunder, By heresies distressed…” We continue our sermon series under the theme One Foundation. We’ll see that our God protects the church from enemies inside and out! There are plenty of problems in the church. How can we work through those? We’ll look and see God’s plan for taking care of trouble on the inside this Sunday.
