“The Power of a “thank you”!” Luke 17:11-19

“The Power of a “thank you”!”
Luke 17:11-19 

As Easter-people we are invited to live with our “eyes open” (woke) to not just to God’s presence in our lives but also His goodness. This awareness of His goodness changes us and “Thank you” has the power to change the world.

“Living (spiritually) Woke” Luke 24:13-35

“Living (spiritually) Woke” Luke 24:13-35 

 

The slang term “woke” has gained popular usage in our culture today. It generally means to be “awake” of the world (in particular to the injustices) around you. Easter, while it is a day to remember/celebrate Christ’s victory over death, is also an invitation to live “Woke” day to day in this new reality of Christ’s victory. As Easter-people we are invited to live in awareness of His presence, His goodness and His purposes with us at all times.

The Unique Jesus (part 6) The Cross: Grace for the Undeserving Luke 23:32-43

The Unique Jesus (part 6) The Cross: Grace for the Undeserving Luke 23:32-43 

Each Gospel tells the story of Jesus yet each tells it in a unique way. As we draw near to Easter we continue to look at the story of Jesus from Luke’s perspective. At the cross, Luke captures an en- counter Jesus has with another man condemned to die that day. His dying words still speak to our greatest need: God’s Grace that will wash away our sin.

The Unique Jesus (part 5) Friend of Sinners Luke 19:1-10

The Unique Jesus (part 5) Friend of Sinners Luke 19:1-10 

Each Gospel tells the story of Jesus yet each tells it in a unique way. As we draw near to Easter we continue to look at the story of Jesus from Luke’s perspective. “Jesus, friend of sinners” is a key part of Luke’s depiction. In today’s passage we see Jesus encounter a short fellow in a tree and find that there’s a little Zacchaeus in all of us.

The Unique Jesus (part 4) Uncomfortable Grace Luke 15:11-32

The Unique Jesus (part 4) Uncomfortable Grace Luke 15:11-32 

Each Gospel tells the story of Jesus yet each tells it in a unique way. As we draw near to Easter we continue to look at the story of Jesus from Luke’s perspective. Some of our favorite parables and stories that Jesus told are only found in Luke, including today’s story of a man who had two sons. Are we more amazed or disturbed by the grace revealed in the story of the prodigal?

The Unique Jesus (part 3) What Matters Most? Luke 10:38-42

The Unique Jesus (part 3) What Matters Most? Luke 10:38-42 

Each Gospel tells the story of Jesus yet each tells it in a unique way. Between now and Easter we will investigate the story of Jesus from Luke’s perspective. Women are featured more prominently in Luke’s Gospel than is the case for Matthew or Mark, so it is not that surprising that the story or Mary and Martha are only found in this Gospel. What is it about these two; their personalities, their gifts or their choices, that helps us find out what matters most?

The Unique Jesus (part 2) Two Life Changing Questions Luke 10:25-37

The Unique Jesus (part 2) Two Life Changing Questions
Luke 10:25-37
 

 

Each Gospel tells the story of Jesus yet each tells it in a unique way. Between now and Easter we will investigate the story of Jesus from Luke’s perspective. Jesus is asked one of the great questions of all time and he responds with an even better answer! Today we’ll look at one of Jesus best known parables (one that is only found in Luke) and find ourselves at the heart of His story.

The Unique Jesus (part 1) Luke 1

The Unique Jesus (part 1) Luke 1 

Each Gospel tells the story of Jesus yet each tells it in a unique way. Between now and Easter we will investigate the story of Jesus from Luke’s perspective. Who was Luke? What makes his view special? Who does he describe this Jesus to be? And why is this important to me today, are some of the questions we’ll begin to answer today.
