Sermon: The parable of the workers in the Vineyard


Grace is the central theme of this parable. In it, we meet a group of laborers whose master wasn’t very happy (in Matthew 20:13 “friend” is used ironically) because they failed to identify the grace he expressed unto them. Likewise today there are Christians in the church who don’t walk in the grace of God. Needless to say, such behavior doesn’t impress God at all. In this parable, I recognized three reasons as to why we fail to walk in God’s grace and how to overcome them.
