Kingdom Wheat, Kingdom Weeds (Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43)
October 27, 2013 Speaker: Dr. David Silvernail Series: The King and His Kingdom! - A Series in the Book of Matthew
Topic: Sermons Passage: Matthew 13:24–13:43
This week we're back in Matthew 13, looking at another well-known parable of Jesus. This one looks simple on the surface, but as with most parables, seems to have a deeper meaning the longer you look at it. Once again, Jesus is using the parables to separate people into followers and non-followers, believers and unbelievers, friends and enemies. This is what makes the parables such a challenge. Come this Sunday to find out more!
Also this week, we celebrate Reformation Sunday, commemorating the day Martin Luther nailed his 95 thesis to the church door in Wittenburg, Germany. Why was that such an important thing? Because it reminds us that in an age of personal peace and affluence, and living in a culture that's afraid of offending people, some things, like faith in Christ and belief in an authoritative Scripture, are not only worth professing, but also worth defending. Even if it costs us in the eyes of others. Let's encourage each other to that end -- the Gospel is worth it! (see Romans 1:16-17)
Looking forward to another great day! See you then, Dr. Dave
