About the Blog:

Hello, and welcome to my blog!

One Hired Late In The Day is named for the parable in Matthew 20:1-16.  Although I grew up in a Christian home and attended church regularly, I was not a born again believer until the age of 30.  By God’s sovereign design and mercy, I was one who was hired late in the day.  I am grateful for His gracious and unmerited gift of forgiveness and salvation.

In the parable, the landowner (who represents God) hires groups of laborers (representing those who will receive salvation) throughout the day.  All of the laborers receive the same wages (eternal life) no matter how long they labored for the master.  John MacArthur, in his book Parables, explains it this way:

“The lesson is actually quite simple: the story is a precise picture of God’s sovereign saving grace.  Since sinners are all unworthy, and the riches of God’s grace are inexhaustible, all believers receive an infinite and eternal share of His mercy and kindness, though no one really deserves it.”

This blog will be comprised of theological essays.  I hope ladies find the posts encouraging, edifying, and good food for thought.

Soli Deo Gloria!
