Sermon Feedback

Here again is opportunity to give feedback on yesterday's sermons.

I was struck by the common conclusion in both sermons as expressed by Aaron's remark, "All we need is Jesus." Another way of saying it is that what we must have is Jesus alone. As Phil pointed out in his message, if we depended upon our performance for God's favor, we must despair. Who among us can feel comfortable when it comes time to show God what we have done with our minas? No matter how much any of us may do, how can it measure up to what is expected? Thank God for the work that Christ has done for us. What did you learn yesterday?

I thought it was of note that the servants say "your mina has produced ten more", though the Lord declares "well done, good and faithful servant".

I still find it odd that we would discuss depair at meeting the master standard, when it seems like the one who despaired of meeting a standard was the wicked servant.

But every parable doesn't contain every doctrine.
