Grace to ALL


Below you will find the video of the October 13, 2013 sermon preached at “The Patterson Avenue Baptist Church.”  The text for the sermon is located in Luke 17:11-19 and is the story popularly called:  “The Healing of the Ten Lepers.”  This sermon is titled:  Grace to All!  You’re whole community can get in on this action.

If you have been following my blog this week, you’ll notice I have posted several different brief articles dealing with this text.  Some of this material has found its way into this sermon – which was the plan.  I do encourage you to check out these posts at your convenience.

All of us want to raise good kids. And we want to be good parents. But what exactly do we mean by “good?” And is “being good” really the point?

Mother-daughter team Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson contend that every way we try to make our kids “good” is simply an extension of Old Testament Law—a set of standards that is not only unable to save our children, but also powerless to change them.

No, rules are not the answer. What they need is GRACE.

We must tell our kids of the grace-giving God who freely adopts rebels and transforms them into loving sons and daughters. If this is not the message your children hear, if you are just telling them to “be good,” then the gospel needs to transform your parenting too.

Give Them Grace is a revolutionary perspective on parenting that shows us how to receive the gospel afresh and give grace in abundance, helping our children know the dazzling love of Jesus and respond with heartfelt obedience.
