Redeeming the Time - Part 4

FAIR SALARIES           Page 7

EXTRICATE

** There are ten principles from this parable about "Fair Salaries" that will prevent us from becoming envious or jealous about our fellow Christians that God has blessed. Being freed from that sinful trait, we are better prepared to "Redeem the Time". Those principles are:

1) God sovereignly initiates and accomplishes salvation. [V.1] (John 6:39)
2) God alone establishes the terms of salvation. [V.2] (John 3:16)
3) God continues to call men into His kingdom. [V.5] (John 5:17, 2Peter 3:9)
4) God redeems everyone who is willing. [V.4] (John 6:37)
5) God is compassionate to those who have no resources and acknowledge their hopelessness. [V.1] (Luke 18:9-14)
6) All who came into the vineyard worked. [V.8] (John 15:8)
7) God has divine authority and ability to keep His promises. [V.13] (Romans 5:20-21)
8) God gives more than we deserve. [V.13-14] (Romans 6:23)
9) Humility is the only right attitude in which a person can come to the Lord.
[V.15] (1Timothy 1:15)
10) God's grace oversees all that we do! [V.2] (Romans 3:21-24)

DELINEATE

** What is the main point of this parable, relative to how all of us compare to one another in the Body of
Christ?

We are equal!!! V.12 - "...you have made them 'equal' to us who have borne the burden and the scorching heat of the day." cf. Galatians 3:28

EVALUATE

** If it is your desire to be "Redeeming the Time" while here on earth, which of the 10 principles listed
above might you want to focus on so that you avoid becoming envious of your brother or sister in Christ?

ACTIVATE

** Please choose two or three of those principles to pray over this next week. Thank the Lord for His
faithfulness in all things and ask Him to keep you humble, even as you observe Him blessing others.
