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?

“Life is Calling” (part 2)

"Life is Calling" (part 2)

Mark 1:14-20King James Version (KJV)

14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

19 And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.

20 And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.

A New Series for the New Year “Supernatural Power for Everyday People” (part 2)
Acts 1:4-9 

Part two: “The Holy Spirit and You”. Where can we find the power for the changes and challenges that will come with the New Year? Often misunderstood or under-appreciated, the Holy Spirit at work in the life of the believer is God’s answer. But what does that mean and what difference doe that make for us? How can we come to know and experience more of his power in the midst of our lives?
