  • The First Shall Be Last, And The Last Shall Be First

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Apr 22, 2015

    Jesus says that it isn’t the religious folk who are first in the kingdom of heaven. It is those who are most open to turning their lives around who are first in line, those who take action when Jesus says, “follow me”.

    It’s painful to have someone you trust tell you that they are going to do something for you---and they don’t. Many of us can tell stories about people who have let us down by making promises and then not following up on them. For example, there is a story of a young widow whose husband more

  • Crowns And Rewards

    Contributed by Roberta Karchner on Oct 20, 2018

    When the disciples approach Jesus about spots in his Kingdom, he turns things upside down

    A friend of mine this week said something that has resonated with me. She said that in her family, she was the designated worrier. Now, I admit, she has much in her life to be worried about, but that is her story. Our stories are different, but I can’t help but wonder if we have a designated more

  • Parable: The Laborers Of The Eleventh Hour Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Dec 20, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    Jesus said “many that are first shall be last, and the last shall be first.” He meant to teach just one thing: That some who think they’re first in the world are going to find themselves last in heaven.

    Perea Parable: The Laborers of the Eleventh hour Matthew 20:1-16 1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire laborers into his vineyard. The parable of the laborers is found only in Matthew. It is connected to the more

  • Little Hero Of The Lord

    Contributed by Wade Martin Hughes, Sr on Dec 12, 2008
    based on 15 ratings

    Often times a Christian worker goes unnoticed and un-applauded. Never forget God is a rewarder...

    LITTLE HERO... WILL THE REAL HERO STAND UP? By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Matthew 19:30 But many that more

  • Workmen's Compensation Series

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Oct 9, 2011
    based on 4 ratings

    God's blessings don't come as a result of the work we put in, but rather are totally dependent on God's grace.

    Matthew 20:1-16 “Workmen’s Compensation” INTRODUCTION We all have a gut reaction when we perceive what we believe to be unfairness or injustice. Mention illegal aliens and blood pressures will rise as you talk about how they’re using our health and educational more

  • Grumbling About Grace

    Contributed by Kevin Newman on Aug 21, 2002
    based on 81 ratings

    Christians take the grace of God for granted, and often complain about God’s blessings.

    "Grumbling About Grace" Matthew 20:1-16 Intro: Most of us hear the phrase "its not fair!" too many times to count. Sometimes we are the ones who are saying it. But of all the things to grumble about, Grace should not be one of them. Yet, we often do grumble about God’s grace. Background: Matthew more

  • God's Word Leads To A Paradoxical Lifestyle

    Contributed by Daniel Habben on Nov 15, 2004
    based on 24 ratings

    God’s Word Leads to a Paradoxical Lifestyle 1) It separates us from the world 2) It sends us to the world

    I’ve always been fascinated with paradoxes. You know, seemingly contrary statements that are nevertheless true. For example the statement, “Standing is more tiring than walking.” is a paradox. Sarah and I were reminded of how true that statement is just a few weeks ago when we had to stand for more

  • “what Is That To You? Follow Me”

    Contributed by Silas Eke on Feb 26, 2015
    based on 1 rating

    We should accept it as axiomatic that God’s dealings with our fellow-disciples are no concern of ours. Our business is to watch our motives carefully, to keep our eyes on the Lord whom we follow, and not to look over our shoulders at others.

    Tested saints in all ages have been prone to complain like Israel: “the way of the Lord is not equal” (Ezekiel 18:29). Some of God’s dealings seem to contradict our innate sense of fairness; and instead of faithfully discharging our responsibilities, we are tempted to look over more

    Me are money the Lord said

    A GREAT YOUNG MAN LOST Matt.19: 16And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou more

  • Meek And Mild (Hix)

    Contributed by Jimmy Haile on Sep 21, 2013

    What being meek means, and how do we apply it in the world we live in,

    Matthew 5:5-Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth. Blessed-True happiness is within. Not in pleasure, wealth, etc. A missionary in Jamaica was once questioning some boys on the meaning of this text, and asked, "Who are the meek?" A boy answered, "Those who give soft answers more
