Your “Pound” of Gospel
8 August 2021 AM – Luke 19:11-27 – Parables21 – Scott Childs
Introduction: Jesus was in Jericho. He had just dined with Zacchaeus the tax collector and led him to salvation. Excitement was building among Jesus’ followers. His disciples and followers anticipated that He was heading to Jerusalem to establish His earthly Kingdom, set them free from Rome, and reign as their King. Jesus told the parable of the pounds to correct that misconception (Read Luke 19:11).
This parable tells us three things about Christ’s Earthly Kingdom. (1) He was going away to prepare for it. (2) His servants are to be busy until He returns. (3) When He returns, He will first reward and judge.
Transition: This parable has a special challenge for us today.
