Salvation is not given because of our good works. Rather it comes to us as a free gift! Jesus has done all the work for us! In His parable about wages and workers we see how upside-down the kingdom of God is. Jesus said, “The last will be first, and the first will be last.” It sounds unfair…and it is! It’s wonderfully unfair! Today we celebrate and worship Jesus, the sinless Son of God who came as the Perfect Worker in the vineyard – earning for us what we could not. What a generous God we have!
Ephesians 2:1-10 (Saved by Grace)
Matthew 20:1-16 (Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard)
