Easter: Don’t Forget Jesus (Luke 17:11-19)

People rarely call their insurance agent just to chat. Insurance is something we get in order to protect ourselves from harm. We are glad we have it, but hope we never have to use it. While insurance for a car is good, Jesus does not sell life insurance. Salvation is not a life insurance policy… Continue reading Easter: Don’t Forget Jesus (Luke 17:11-19)

Sermon

The Parable of the Ten Minas (Luke 19:11-27)

In our sermon today, Jesus has just taught about His mission “to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10).

Don’t Be Dulled (Luke 21:29-38)

Shadow to Substance: Preparation (Luke 21:20-28)

Over the past few weeks we have been studying Luke 21:5-38 in a series entitled “Shadow to Substance”.  The phrase “Shadow to Substance” is important in the reading of our text because in verses 20-28 Jesus has a two-fold mission of preparation for His disciples.  Therefore, in this sermon, we shall make two passes through… Continue reading Shadow to Substance: Preparation (Luke 21:20-28)

By What Authority? (Luke 20:1-26)

As we continue our study of the Gospel of Luke we come to the question of Jesus’ authority.  The main question is summed up in Luke 20:2: “Tell us by what authority you do these things, or who it is that gave you this authority?”  In our sermon we shall see that Jesus’ authority is:… Continue reading By What Authority?

Glad, Sad, and Mad (Luke 19:28-48)
