Sermons on Luke
Today we walk through the events around the resurrection of Jesus, what they meant to people 2000 years ago and what they mean to us.
Jesus is the hope of the world.
The way in which he came revealed the reason why he came.
Jesus changes everything.
Jesus is our hope foretold and fulfilled. We will look through the Word to see exactly how God fulfilled the promise of a coming Messiah.
Today we will study the parable of the ten minas, a parable told because the Jews believed the kingdom of God was to appear immediately. We will discuss how Jesus is a King in waiting.
We tend to over-estimate our own goodness. That is, we think deep down that we’re really ok people. Self-righteousness is blatantly anti-Jesus. When we overestimate our righteousness, we place ourselves on a god-like pedestal and devalue the nature and death of Jesus.
Today as we look into the story of the prodigal son, we look into the older son’s response. Particularly we will be looking at religious legalism vs the Gospel.
Jesus was a friend of sinners. He received people where they were, so he could take them where they needed to be.
