Outline: In this sermon we look at one of the parables of Jesus that help us understand the nature of the Kingdom of Heaven…….The Parable of the Wheat and Tares (Matt 13)
To help us unpack this parable, we look at some questions…
- Who are the main players in the parable?
- What is the meaning of the parable (Jesus does explain!)?
- How should we respond to the parables message?
In the last section, we understand that the reason God allows to co-existence of the wheat (believers) and weeds (non-believers) until the end of the age is a gracious one – to maximise the opportunity for people to understand and respond positively to the Gospel of Jesus Christ (2 Pet3:8-9);
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance”.
