Entitlement 2


Church Family,

How powerful is the gospel? Who doesn’t need the gospel? A small part of what makes God amazing is that to admit our need for Him is not a weakness but a strength. I believe that for us to reach the point of admitting our need for Christ we must recognizing our sinfulness and the consequences of living in a fallen world.

Mark 12:7 But those tenants said to one another, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’

Christ is telling a parable that describes how the world has treated the servants of God in the past and now God’s son. Rather than admitting their need for God they tried to remove God and take from Him what belongs only to Him. Entitlement will go to great lengths to get what it wants no matter what damage it causes to others. In what ways do we act spiritually entitled today? How is the gospel the only cure?

Can I encourage you today to get honest about how you treat God, His Word, and His people? Are they your competition? If you could remove or belittle others would it help advance your desires?
