Mercy and Judgement, Part One

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 6

Luke 13:6 (ID: 2205)

After discussing humanity’s crucial and urgent need for repentance, Jesus told His listeners a parable about a fruitless fig tree and a merciful vineyard owner. As Alistair Begg notes, God, like the vineyard owner, is merciful to us by allowing us time to repent and bear fruit before He exacts His ultimate judgment. God’s wrath is severe, but His mercy is bountiful; we should not presume upon His patience another minute without repenting toward Him.
