Title: God’s Controversial Grace
Speaker: Pastor Darryl J. Stalter
Scripture: Matthew 20:1-16
“That’s not fair.” This is a phrase we hear and use all the time. We see God apparently working in or blessing someone else and we feel it is unfair. As a result we often struggle to see the goodness and fairness of God. The main reason that we struggle is that we truly do not understand the controversial nature of grace. Grace is “the free and unmerited favor of God.’Because it is free and unmerited, it will be controversial because our performance does not necessarily determine the outcome.
