A one-off message on the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus, challenging the listener to choose God as their first love and to choose a reputation of faith.

Details

This parable, found in Luke 16:19-31, is thought provoking, forcing the reader to consider questions of heaven and hell, faith and sin, and who and what we value. Do we see those around us with God's values or the world's? Taking a deep look at Luke 16:19-31, this one-off message examines the parable of the rich man and Lazarus by first addressing who the audience was, cultural and historical significance to the story, and finally asking the questions, are we making the right choice with our first love? And what is our legacy when it comes to things of faith with our loved ones?

Appropriate for a youth ministry context and/or an adult worship service context.

Questions are included at the end of the manuscript for discussion immediately following the message or can be used for small groups.
