Sermon October 15 — Invitation to the Wedding Feast

In case you missed it, today’s sermon was on the invitation to the wedding feast in Matthew 22:9.

A Special Invitation

God has worked faith in our hearts to respond in joy to His gracious invitation. But our preoccupation with our personal agendas and the world’s allure can turn our hearts away. Jesus couches that problem in a parable. Worse, we might think that we can enter heaven, the eternal banquet, on our terms, supposing we need not be clothed in Christ’s righteousness alone. Yet God’s preoccupation is to keep sending out His special invitation to one and all. Our current circumstances mean nothing compared to the eternal banquet to which we are invited by the overflowing grace of God.

Sermon September 24 2017 Sixteenth Sunday After Pentecost

In case you missed it, here’s Pastor Mark’s sermon for the Sixteenth Sunday After Pentecost.

As We Gather

Our reward for being called to work in God’s kingdom  does not change based on how long we have been in our Lord’s service. After all, we are saved by grace through faith, not by works. Isaiah’s call for the wicked and unrighteous to return to the Lord shows God’s immense compassion for all people, no matter when they return to Him. God’s ways are not our ways, yet we continue to work in His kingdom until he calls us when we die. In today’s gospel message, Paul is struggling with a desire to depart and be with Christ and a desire to go on living and laboring for the Lord. Death and life content, but Paul knows life will win. He knows that Jesus will return, raise the dead, and dwell with them forever.
