The whole purpose of this series is for us to clearly see what God is looking for in a church member; not what we want church membership to be, but who God wants us to be as church members. We are going to explore four sentences spoken by Jesus and about which I have never heard a sermon preached. I have never taught on this passage either. I don’t like this passage. I don’t like what it says; I don’t like the tone that Jesus strikes while he tells it; and I especially do not like the implication of this parable for my life. So let’s read it and you can see what you think.
