A Life Bursting With Joy

February 6, 2016 Pastor: Series: Guest Speaker

Scripture: Matthew 20:1–20:16

“A Life Bursting with Joy”
Matthew 20:1-16

1. Our _______________, _______________ Master. (1, 2)
“The kingdom of heaven is like a landowner.”

2. Our ______________ ______________ in His kingdom. (2-7)
“Early in the morning” = basically meant at sunrise, so

“The third hour” = 9am = 9 hours worked.

“The sixth hour” = 12 noon = 6 hours worked.

“The ninth hour” = 3pm = 3 hours worked.

“The eleventh hour” = 5pm = 1 hour worked.

Personally: Am I a 1, 3, 6, 9 or 12 hour worker?

3. Our _____________ ______________ to God’s grace. (8-16)

A. The ________________________ response. (8, 9)
“Those who were hired last received a denarius.”

B. The ____________________________ response. (10, 11)
“Those who were hired first expected to receive more. But each of them also received a denarius.”

The problem: false expectations lead to _________________.

Personally: Do I tend have false expectations or compare myself with others? They are joy-killers.

4. “They began to ______________________ against the landowner.” (11)

Jesus’ secret to a better life:
In God’s eyes, ________________________________________________!
