One of the main themes that we find in a lot (although not all) of Jesus’ parables is God’s grace. Specifically, they often point towards God’s limitless grace. That was a central part of last week’s parable: Grace demands our response.

I want to start with a clip from a movie called 3:10 to Yuma. Here is the story. Rancher Daniel Evans, who lost part of his leg in the Civil War, is a broken man who owes a large amount to a powerful man in Bisbee. When the notorious outlaw Ben Wade is captured after the heist of a stagecoach, Dan offers to assist in escorting the cold-blooded killer to the city of Contention, where Wade will board the 3:10 PM train to Yuma and await his trial. In return, Dan would receive $200, enough to save his land and provide a better life for his family. In this scene, Evans family reluctantly hosts the Wade for dinner where the family’s faith clashes with the beliefs of their guests.
