Sunday: 8:00 & 10:30am
Greetings St. Paul’s Family,
The Bible has two main teachings: law and gospel. We need to hear both. The law warns us and exposes sin. The gospel frees us from it by proclaiming Christ’s mercy to sinners.
In a context of a vineyard, Jesus brings home both teachings. When sinners get lazy with God’s grace, reject it, and show that in their lives with actions that harm and hurt, God threatens still consequences. That’s the law. He will take away what he’s given and give it to others.
Dear Christians, his grace has been given to you! That’s the gospel. May we learn this lesson well! Having the gospel doesn’t mean we are free to take it for granted like so many in the past have done. It can also be taken from us! May that never happen! May we treasure Jesus! May we love to hear about the forgiveness of sins! And may we without reservation live in the gospel and bear fruit by it.
God bless your worship this weekend-
