In this worship gathering, our intern, Christine Samuel, brings a message about the parable of the sheep and the goats from Matthew 25.31-46. The whole service is below, and the message alone below that.
When my wife listened to this message, she said, “I’d never thought of that passage in that way before.” Maybe you’ll have a similar reaction, or maybe not! The parable of the sheep and the goats is often used as a cattle prod to encourage people to good deeds – but to what end? And whom are we serving in the process? Perhaps the exposition of Matthew 25.31-46 will be a surprise for you, too. You can listen to the message here:
If you’re interested, here is a recording of the choral piece I cite in the message.
