Sermon Date: December 13, 2020
Speaker: Pastor Matt Horne
People who were nothing like Jesus loved Jesus. One word explains why: grace.
Over and over, Jesus leaned toward guilty people and unrepentant sinners. It was a brand-new, unfair, unsettling system that he came to invite us into. So the big question for everyone this Christmas season is, “Whether you need grace or need to give grace, how should you respond?”
“Grace is the one thing we have most when our guilt is exposed, and grace is the one thing we’re hesitant to extend when confronted with the guilt of others,” says Martin Hawley, pastor.
In this three-part series, Pastor Hawley will explain the undeserved, unearned, unearnable favor that Jesus came to offer you.
Part 2 of 3: Ridiculously Unfair (John 1:14; Luke 19:1–5, 7; Matthew 20) – December 13: The kingdom of God is characterized by outrageous generosity—the kind of generosity that gives undeserving people what they don’t deserve regardless of how wrong someone might be.
