Pastor Jon teaches on Jesus’ parable of the Weeds among the Wheat. Sometimes we may see ourselves or others as weeds because of our brokenness and sin, but the reality is that we are all recovering sinners that have been saved by grace. So we practice a little bit of “leave it be” knowing and trusting that God is not finished working in all of us.
Matthew 13:24-30; 36-43
2 Peter 3:14-15a
Prevenient Grace - God working in our lives befog we know God is working in our lives. (The front porch of God's house.)
Justifying Grace - Our acceptance of God's work in our lives through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Entering God's home.)
Sanctifying Grace - God's continued work in our lives to grow us into being perfected in love. (Exploring and making ourselves at home in God's home for the rest of our lives.)
