Sermon – Pastor Mike Halstead

Parable of the Talents, Matthew 25:14-30

I. Everything You Have Is A Gift From God, Matthew 25:15-18
– Owner vs. Steward
– “Immediately”
II. You Will Be Held Accountable For Your Life
-“After A Long Time”  Matthew 25:19
-Two Judgments in the New Testament:
1. For those who have rejected Jesus as Lord and Savior, Revelation 20:11-15
2. A moment of accounting for believers, 1 Corinthians 3:12-15
III. The Christian Life Is A Life Of Risk
-The edge is scary
-Faith actually means . . . “not seeing what’s next”
-That first step of obedience is leaving your comfort zone
Take Away:
-”Sharing your Master’s happiness!”
-Do I believe everything I have is a gift from God?
-What is the next step in my “talents” journey?
Take Away:
-What is the pearl?
-Why would it mention of “great price”?
-What are we building with wood, hay, straw?
-What are we doing that has eternal significance?
