(1-16) Laborers in the Vineyard
This parable illustrates how those who are late in coming to faith in Christ are just as saved and loved as those who come early to Christ. A greater salvation is not given to one who accepted Jesus at the age of seven and grew up reading the Bible and going on mission trips their entire life. Neither is a lesser salvation given to a death row inmate who doesn’t accept Jesus until he or she is about to die. God is fair and just in His generosity.
