In this story, Jesus teaches that the Kingdom of God is full of surprises and reversals. We see God the King as a landowner who keeps searching for workers for the harvest, and he offers the same reward for latecomers as for early recruits. Is the King always fair, in our eyes? What does it mean that the last shall be first? What we will discover is that, ultimately, this King operates out of extravagant generosity and grace.

Recognizing The Sheep http://rosewoodchurchmedia.com/2017/08/13/recognizing-the-sheep/ Sun, 13 Aug 2017 19:24:22 +0000 http://rosewoodchurchmedia.com/?p=2686 This morning we return to our summer sermon series, Kingdom Come! as Pastor Bonny brings a message on the parable of the Sheep and Goats. Jesus said that the Good Shepherd knows His sheep, and they know Him. Today’s question is “How does Jesus recognize us as His sheep?” Can we force our way in to the sheep pen, or do we come by invitation of the Shepherd? What sheep behavior results in eternal blessing in the Kingdom of God?

That begins with us, as parents & grandparents, but it also includes the whole family of faith. We want our kids to “Follow Those Who Follow Jesus.” That’s  one big reason you’re gonna want to come back to Rosewood … again and again!

Why is it taking so long? Today we will learn some of God’s reasons, and we will learn some things about the work that God has yet to do before Jesus returns.

Isn’t that true? Like Martha in Luke 10, we’ are often “anxious and troubled about many things.” Today Jesus will teach us how to live well as citizens of the Kingdom of God and members of the Family of God. He calls us to trust more, worry less, and seek God’s Kingdom first. And when we actually do this, the benefits are astonishing!

God resolved to have a family – children who love him and strive to be like him. Are you part of that “forever family” through Christ? Or are you part of the “other family”? Your actions and affections will likely give you some clues about your family identity. This is urgent stuff.

Today we will talk about how the gospel is passed from generation to generation. This transmission of the gospel is of utmost importance – for the salvation of your kids & grandkids, for the well-being of the church, and for the plan of God for history.

Ascension Day was that day, 40 days after Easter, when Jesus was taken up to heaven. Pentecost Sunday was 10 days later, the day when the exalted Jesus poured out the Holy Spirit on all the believers, launching the global mission and resulting in the explosive growth of the church. In today’s message, entitled “The Secret of the Ten Days,” Pastor Brink will help us understand some of the connections between these two days. The focus will be on sustained communal prayer and how that is connected to the power of the Holy Spirit still today.
