Christ Came to Divide

Luke 12:51-53 I’d like to invite all of you to turn in your bibles to Luke Chapter 12.  And we’re going to continue what we started last week so Luke 12:49 and following.  As we saw last week Jesus sees the world divided into basic groups.  His, his work as Messiah acknowledges two basic groups.  There are those who will go through…

Christ Came to Start a Fire

Luke 12:49-50 Luke 12:49.  It is a, it is a portion of Scripture that is unique to Luke’s gospel, you’re not going to find this section in any of the other gospels, these two verses anyway we’ll cover today.  But this portion also provides very unique and privileged insight into the thinking of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.    There in Luke…

Incentives for Faithful Stewardship, Part 2

Luke 12:45-48 Luke chapter 12. Hopefully we can finish this, this section of our Lord’s teaching, which is about how to live in light of the second coming. We have an account to give before the Lord. We have a stewardship to keep before him and so Jesus is exhorting us and really motivating us with some enticements for faithful stewardship, incentives.…

Incentives for Faithful Stewardship, Part 1

Luke 12:41-44 Turn in your Bibles to Luke chapter 12. As you know, we’ve entered into a study on, it’s, it’s themed on the Lord’s return, but it’s a study really on readiness, in light of the Lord’s return, and Christian watchfulness, which is the subject last week. Readiness, watchfulness, eagerness to see our Lord return in light of his soon return,…

The Virtue of Watchfulness

Luke 12:35-40 We are back though in Luke, chapter 12, right in the middle of this amazing chapter, and today we’re looking at verses 35 to 40. Some powerful perspective setting, priority setting, teaching from our Lord Jesus Christ. At the end of every year and, a, right around this time, Thanksgiving, Christmas season, I find myself looking back on what’s happened…

A Heart for Kingdom Treasure

Luke 12:32-34 I invite you to turn in your Bibles to Luke 12.  We’re going to be looking at the final few verses in what has been a hugely, hugely encouraging section.  We’re going to start reading back in Luke 12:13.  I just want to read that whole section to get the fuller context in front of us.  So look at Luke…

Live with a Kingdom Perspective

Luke 12:29-32 We are in, as  you know, Luke Chapter 12, but that’s not where I want you to turn to first in your Bibles.  Not yet.  I want you to begin this morning a few chapters earlier—in Luke Chapter 9—Jesus’ call to Christian discipleship, which begins in Luke 9:23.  Back when we studied this text, we recognized that Jesus’ call to…

The Benefits of Fearing God, Part 2

Luke 12:10-12 We are wrapping up what we started last Sunday, just a message on the benefits of fearing God.  And today, we’re looking at Luke 12:10 through 12, where Jesus speaks about our spirit-instructed witness to the truth.  Again, this section is going to be on the ministry of the Holy Spirit, and it’s kind of an early preview because the…

The Benefits of Fearing God, Part 1

Luke 12:4-9 Grab your bibles, open to Luke 12.  The entry into Luke 12 has been pretty hard hitting, I think.  Personally it’s been hard hitting to me and I think for a number of us as well, and today we’re going to discover the strength and the encouragement that Jesus gives to those who fear God.  In all that has happened…

The Remedy for Hypocrisy

Luke 12:2-5 I want to welcome you back to our study in Luke chapter 12.  And we are looking at the subject of religious hypocrisy.  Its danger and its remedy.  Last week we talked about the danger of religious hypocrisy.  Today, the remedy, which is the fear of God.  I’ve been thinking a lot these days about the need for the fear…
