"There Is Now: Enter Into The Joy." Rev. Ross Baker
Here is the link to this week's message:
Scripture: Matthew 25:14-30
There is no entry fee for the Kingdom or (kin-dom). Our "net-worth" has nothing to do with our eternal value. This is our proclamation for today. We are chosen not for our ability, but simply because we are loved. What would it look like to flip the "Parable of the Talents" and look at it from another angle? To see its value in more than a story about those who give/do more will receive more and instead see it in a different way. A manner of seeing that God gives each of us gifts, things to be used to help build up the body of Christ. As we draw ever closer to the Season of Advent how might we see the Season of Preparation as one in which we prepare to help build up the kingdom. Build it up through our acts of preparation, love, service, and joy!
