40 Now when Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him. 41 And there came a man named Jairus, who was a ruler of the synagogue. And falling at Jesus’ feet, he implored him to come to his house, 42 for he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying. As Jesus went, the people pressed around him. 4…
 
26 Then they sailed to the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee. 27 When Jesus had stepped out on land, there met him a man from the city who had demons. For a long time he had worn no clothes, and he had not lived in a house but among the tombs. 28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before him and said with a loud voice, …
 
22 One day he got into a boat with his disciples, and he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side of the lake.” So they set out, 23 and as they sailed he fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water and were in danger. 24 And they went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” And he …
 
In Luke 7:24-35, we discover four wonderful surprises. 1. Who is God’s greatest spokesman? (Verses 24-28) John the Baptist! 2. Who is leading a purpose-driven Llfe? (Verses 29-30) Sinners who repent and embrace God's purpose in Christ! 3. Who is wise in this age? (Verses 31-35) Followers of Christ, the children of wisdom! 4. Who befriends sinners? …
 
As we return to our study of the Gospel according to Luke we read about John the Baptist’s dark night of the soul. In this passage, we discover a question posed by John the Baptist and an answer supplied by the Lord Jesus. In this passage we can learn something of the nature of our doubts, as well as the sweet certainty found in our wonderful and m…
 
The greatest obstacle to the forward progress of the gospel in the world… doesn’t come from outside the church, but rather from within the church itself. What obstacle is that? The obstacle of disunity! In Philippians 2:1-4, the Apostle Paul supplies the motivations (Verse 1), the mindset (Verse 2), and the mandate (Verses 3-4) for unity in the chu…
 
11 Soon afterward he went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. 12 As he drew near to the gate of the town, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow, and a considerable crowd from the town was with her. 13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her…
 
In this passage, the Lord of glory Himself defines what His lordship means and He displays what your discipleship means. 1. Christ’s Lordship Defined (Verse 46) 2. Your Discipleship Displayed (Verses 47-49) My prayer is that each one of us would come to Jesus, hear His words, believe His words, obey His words, and disciple the nations with His word…
 
In this passage, we come face-to-face with perhaps the most difficult of all of Christ’s commandments: Love your enemies (27-31), not like the world loves (32-34), but like God loves you (35-36). My prayer to God is that we would know the unsurpassable love of Christ and so be empowered by His Spirit to do the impossible: to love the unlovable.…
 
Augustine once wrote: “Thou hast made us for Thyself and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in Thee.” The Bible teaches that we all were made by God, for God, to find our rest in God. And all our hearts are restless until we find our rest, our Sabbath rest, in Him. In our passage this morning we discover two conflicts between Jesus a…
 
What we discover in our passage for this morning is that the new covenant Jesus came to establish doesn’t fit with the old ways of rabbinical Judaism. The Sunrise had visited them from on high, but instead of recognizing that the time of fulfillment had come, they were blinded by the light. What did they fail to see? 1. This is the Time for Feastin…
 
The biggest problem in the world back then and today is unforgiven sin. The biggest problem you will ever face in this world is unforgiven sin. Jesus came into the world to set the captives free and to liberate those who are in the prison of unforgiven sin. The central truth of our text this morning is this good news: Jesus Has the Authority to For…
 
Jesus meets a man who faces a kind of permanent quarantine that ought to stagger us. Jesus meets a man who suffers alone in a kind of isolation (physical, social, and religious) that beggars belief. Jesus meets a man who the world avoids at all costs, a man who is untouchable, a man who is contagious, a man who is defiled, a man who is unclean, a m…
 
The structure of this passage is straightforward: Verses 1-7 are all about catching fish; Verses 8-11 are all about catching people. After catching a multitude of fish, Jesus says to Peter, “From now on you will be catching men.” This passage is much more than simply an amazing true fish story. What happened that day on the Lake of Gennesaret was a…
 
Robert Murray M’Cheyne wrote these words in a letter of counsel to his friend who was struggling with uncertainty in regards to the faith: “The four Gospels are a narrative of the heart of Christ. They show His compassion to sinners, and His glorious work in their stead. If you only knew that heart as it is, you would lay your weary head on His bos…
 
How would we recognize the true message of a genuine prophet? This morning we continue in our studies of the Gospel according to Luke. In our passage, Luke 4:14-30, we learn from Jesus Himself about the advent of His public ministry… a ministry which in large measure was a prophetic ministry, a ministry of proclamation. Jesus begins His ministry by…
 
This morning, we continue in our studies of the Gospel according to Luke. We have arrived at a very familiar passage of Scripture: the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness at the hands of the devil. This is a massively important event in the history of God’s plan of redemption. It is an epic battle, a cosmic conflict, the outcome on which our eter…
 
In Luke 3:21-22, Luke records three momentous events: the baptism of Jesus by John, the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus, and the delight of God the Father expressed in a voice from heaven. These three events inaugurate Christ’s public ministry; but they’re more than that! In these events, we discover a coronation ceremony, that includes both …
 
Dr. Luke tells us in the prologue of his Gospel that this book is an orderly account based upon the testimony of eyewitnesses. In the OT, “Only on the evidence of two or three witnesses shall a charge be established.” (Deuteronomy 19:15) After the angelic announcement that Jesus is the Son of the Most High God, the Savior, and the long-awaited Mess…
 
This morning I want to ask and answer two questions from this passage: First, “What’s Christmas really all about? (Verses 1-12); Second, “What’s Christmas Got to Do with You?” (Verses 13-20). Augustine of Hippo: "The Word of the Father, by Whom all time was created, was made flesh and was born in time for us. The Maker of man became Man that He, Ru…
 
In this passage, two major events occur: John the Baptist is born; and Zechariah blesses the LORD and his newborn son. In these two events, we discover God’s mercy to sinners. If you want one word to summarize this entire passage it’s: MERCY! (See Verses 58, 72, 78) When God’s promises are finally fulfilled, God’s people joyfully praise His mercy. …
 
A belief isn’t worth having if you can’t be certain it’s true. But how can you be certain that what you believe to be true about the Christian faith... is true? Luke 1:1-4: “Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, 2 just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministe…
