Rethinking King

November 26, 2017 – Rev. Ric Shewell

Message Notes
“Rethinking ‘King’”
Rev. Ric Shewell

Who is this parable about?

10 brides = the church, all faithful saints
“I will show you the Bride, the Lamb’s Wife” -Rev. 21:9

3 servants = gifted Christians who know God

“All the ethnoi will be gathered…” = GENTILES

Entrance into the Kingdom is not dependent on works.

Entrance is dependent on KNOWING CHRIST

Those who don’t know Christ, will know Christ by caring for the needs of others.

If this is how others can know Christ, certainly we have a responsibility to do likewise.

Next steps:
– Invite “others” into service and mission projects. Christmas Sharing. Oaxaca Mission Trip. Habitat build.
– Find Christ in and among those in need.
– Keep in love with God.
