Series: The Thing Behind the Thing

Pastor A: Pastor Joe Meyer

Message Summary:

Often this parable leads people in the wrong direction. Often people hear these words of Jesus, and not unlike the parable of the sheep and the goats in Matthew 25, they are led to believe that if the rich man was nicer to Lazarus…he too would have gone to heaven when he died.  Today’s “Thing Behind the Thing” is a reminder that within this parable Jesus tells us how to get to heaven…namely through His resurrection…and because we’re on our way to heaven through His resurrection, we will reach out with kindness, mercy and compassion to the “Lazarus’s” in our lives every day.  That’s “the thing behind the thing”!
