John MacArthur: Fitting Rewards from the Returning King


I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. —Luke 19:26

Pastor John MacArthur, in a sermon, ” Fitting Rewards from the Returning King”, on the Parable of the Minas in Luke 19:

You’re either among the faithful, the false or the foes.  But in any case, the Lord owns you, the King owns you because He’s King of the world.  He’s King of all humanity.  He’s King of every soul and every knee bows sooner or later.  You don’t want Him to reign over you?  He reigns anyway.  But if you confess Him as Lord and King, you become among the faithful those who are rewarded and lavished with spiritual graces and privileges forever.  If you’re hiding among the false, the day will come when you will be unmasked and all your phony excuses will be unveiled and discounted and you will be eternal waste, sent off to perish with the enemies of Christ.

There it is in one story…rewards for the faithful, rejection for the false, retribution for the foes.  Where are you?  What group is your group?  All under the sovereignty of the King.
