In the parable of the two sons in Matthew 21:28-32, the father told the first son to go and work in the vineyard. He refused at first but later changed his mind and went.
The father told the second son to go and work in the vineyard, he said “I will sir” but the chap didn’t go.
Lessons for the church about the parable of the two sons
1. God has told folks to go and work in the “vineyard” but we are reluctant. In some situations we even surrendered on our knees and said “yes Lord” but didn’t even take one step to do anything.
Delayed obedience is still disobedience.
Reluctant obedience is disobedience.
2. People who do not know the Lord are believing and turning from the ways of the world.
3. People who have heard of Jesus, who supposedly understand the workings of Christ, witnessed miracles have refused to repent and properly believe (unwaveringly, without doubt).
You cannot dilly-dally with your faith. Believe in the Lord immediately and walk in consistent faith. That’s the expectation.
