Come and See; Go and Tell(Luke 24)

The last chapter of the book of Luke gives the account of the most important event in the Christian story – the resurrection of Jesus. Everything in the Bible hinges on this event. Without the resurrection of Jesus you have at best, just another dead prophet, and at worst the realization that Jesus was either […]

The Love of God(Luke 23:26-56)

  Not all good people go to heaven.  Did you know that? Most people in the world believe that after we die our soul goes on to live forever somewhere.  And the primary belief is that how we live our life on this side of the grave determines what happens next.  The consensus of all […]

  The Arrest and Trials of Jesus Last week we saw Jesus anguishing in prayer, submitting to God’s will for Him.  He prayed, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”  Knowing the rest of the story, we understand that it was not the Father’s […]

A man was being pursued by a roaring, hungry lion.  Feeling the beast’s hot breath on his neck and knowing his time was short, he prayed as he ran.  He cried out in desperation, “O Lord, please make this lion a Christian.”  Within seconds, the frightened man became aware the lion had stopped the chase.

Playing Games with Jesus(Luke 20:20 – 21:4)

One of the greatest illustrations of the power of focus is the “Great Cola War” between Pepsi Cola and Coca Cola. In the mid-1980s, the market shares of Pepsi Cola and Coca Cola were about even. Pepsi then started buying Frito-Lay—the maker of “Lay’s Potato Chips”—the world’s largest snack food company. Pepsi then bought Pizza […]

The Stone the Builders Rejected(Luke 20:1-19)

As we enter into chapter 20 of Luke, we really need a fight announcer to get us started because the battle is on.  Last week we read of Jesus parading into Jerusalem with His followers praising Him and proclaiming Him as king, and then we watched as He entered into the most important religious place […]

Jesus, our King(Luke 19:28-48)

The Time Has Come Luke 9:51 says, “As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.”  This statement was made ten chapters ago, which for Jesus and His disciples was about 6 months ago (for us this was about 9 months ago).  So for 6 months […]

A Life Transformed(Luke 19:1-27)

Last week we looked at the stories of two men whose lives did not resemble that of Jesus. Due to their pride and idolatry, they were anchored to this world and could not bring themselves to break free from their worldly values and follow Jesus. As Jesus taught about these men, one a Pharisee and […]

Un-Tangled(Luke 18:9-43)

Would you sing with me? Turn your eyes upon Jesus Look full in His wonderful face And the things of earth will grow strangely dim In the light of His glory and grace Luke 12:34 tells us, “…where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Anything that excessively anchors us to earth rather […]

Resolute Faithfulness

Questions, questions, questions It’s difficult not knowing answers isn’t it?  Most of us like to be in control of ourselves at least, and when we don’t have all the answers we would like to have, we feel a bit out of control.  Children are faced with this dilemma often – that’s why they ask so […]
