Matthew 20:1-16

Amazing Grace

Rev. Dianne Davis

Jesus uses a parable to teach about the reward in the kingdom of heaven. He uses a story of vineyard owner that hires workers at various times of the day for a certain amount of money. At the end of the day the ones who were hired first thought they should get more  because they had worked longer, but the vineyard owner gave them all the same amount. Those who came early were disappointed that the owner would  see them as equal to those who came toward the end of the day. The story teaches about God's extravagant Grace. God's grace is amazing. God's gift is a gift that we cannot earn . WE do not deserve it but  because of his Grace and mercy God extends it.

Exodus 14:19-31

Wading Troubled Waters

Rev. Dianne Davis

God rescues the people from Pharaoh. God protected the Israelite  has they journey through the waters. Even has the Egyptian pursued them. Moses stretched out his hand over the sea. The Lord drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night, and turned the sea into a dry land, and the waters were divided. God saved Israel that day from the Egyptians; and Israel saw the  dead on the seashore. Israel saw the great work that the lord did against the Egyptians. So the people feared the Lord and believed in the Lord nd in his servant Moses. Our hope in this story is our God rescues us when  we in the midst o f troubled waters. Whenever we have to face strong winds in our lives, God is able to part the waters and bring us to dry land.

Matthew 16:21-28

Losing Sight of the Path

Rev. Dianne Davis

After Jesus asked his disciples the question, "Who do you say I am?", he revealed to them that he would die on the cross and resurrect on the third day.  Peter could not accept the fact that Jesus would have to face death. Peter actually goes so far as to rebuke Jesus.  Jesus called Peter, Satan. It seems as though Peter had lost sight of the big picture. I think sometimes as Christians, we lose sight of the big picture. We lose sight of the path that Jesus had to take. We, like Peter, often focus on the human path and not the holy and Godly path Jesus had to follow. We too must follow the Godly and holy path In order follow Jesus.
