Sermon preached at RUF’s Wednesday Night Fellowship on Oct. 24, 2018. When a prostitute crashes the dinner party of a well-respected member in the community, Jesus responds with a story: “Once upon a time….” In the story that Jesus tells, one person has a large debt, the other a smaller one—the point being that some people’s lives are messier than others, some people have bigger debts to pay. And yet, at the end of the day, even the one with the smaller debt cannot pay the banker back; he cannot make good on his loan; both debtors are bankrupt in the end. Graciously, debt forgiveness is offered to all. However, only those who recognize their need will receive it. What about you? What will you do?
