Just Grace.

Hello Again!
This week, Pastor John takes us throught that difficult passage of Luke 16:1-13. A quick read-through seem to see Christ condoning fraud as commendable! Surely this can't be right?

Of course, it isn't right. What we fail to do is to put Christ himself into His own parable. Then it all makes sense. Listen to Pastor John as he explains Christ's words and they become the living revelation of God's will.

Faithful God, your Son teaches us that we cannot serve two masters. Keep us from being led astray by greed or possessions and help us to dedicate our lives to you as our one true treasure. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
