    The Rubric for Rewards: What Is Jesus Looking For? (Matthew 25:14-30) 1. What is a rubric? The word has quite a few different definitions, actually. You might look it up.

    What you think you know about spiritual gifts, is probably wrong, in ways that actually inhibit ministry rather than encouraging it.

    This morning I would like us to think about spiritual gifts: skills and abilities given by God the Holy Spirit to followers of Christ for the purpose of ministry. And my hypothesis is that what you probably believe about spiritual gifts is wrong. Wrong in a way that’s diminishing your joy in ...read more

    Jesus again repeats Himself in Matthew 25, and He tells us another parable to get us ready for the end times. He tells a different story with the same point. Will we get it this time?

    You know something is important when someone repeats it a second time. You can also know if something is important when they say the same thing again, but in a different way, so that if you didn’t get it the first time, you might get it the second time. It can be a technique that we can be quite ...read more

    Jesus' parable of the talents is a call to us to invest all that we are and all that we have in God's kingdom building work. The story reminds us not to compare, but to faithfully invest what we have, and to get to know the Master's heart.

    Matthew 25:14-30 Use It or Lose It Today’s parable is a story about investments. Sometimes we think it’s about using our natural abilities to serve God. Why do we think that? Because the story uses the word “talent” throughout. Our English word “talent” actually comes from that interpretation ...read more
