Show Notes for Grains from Gutteridge Podcast Episode #19:
Good Servants and Unprofitable Servants

Rendering of the Parable of the Talents by an anonymous artistParable of the Talents

Scripture Reading:

Matthew 25:14-30


From the parables of Jesus, the Good Servants and the Unprofitable Servants are delineated with their ultimate rewards. But there are not just two divisions on earth — the saved and the unsaved. There is a division in the ranks of the saved: there are servants and servant-sons. Servants may believe they are sons because they have been taught so. But sons have an inner witness to sonship, given by the indwelling Holy Spirit.
