Stop Trying to Make Jesus Fit

Luke 5:33-39 Levi’s banquet which was attended by all kinds of tax collectors and what Luke calls “others” and the scribes call them “sinners.” Jesus attended all that and he stood up, as well, to defend his disciples in the face of religious critics. I love that section of Scripture because it shows how Jesus is the friend of sinners, and that…

The Despised, God Has Chosen

Luke 5:27-32 For those who profess Christ—if we have been attending church for very long, we become accustomed to using Christianese.  Do you know what I’m saying by that?  Christian jargon.  We refer to ourselves as “unworthy sinners,” talk among ourselves like that.  We even use words like “wretched” and “totally depraved.”  Some Christians, when asked how they are doing on a…

The Full Authority of the Son of Man

Luke 5:21-26   We want to refresh our memories of the context here by reading that portion.  So follow along as I read what we covered last week in Luke Chapter 5 starting in verse 17. On one of those days, as he was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there, who had come from every village of Galilee…

The Greatest Miracle of All

Luke 5:17-20 Here in Luke 5, join me in verse 17 and follow along as I read the account. On one of those days, as he [as Jesus] was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem.  And the power of the Lord was with him to…

Complete Restoration for All Unclean, Part 2

Luke 5:14-16 Let’s begin by reading the passage, which we usually do.  Look at Luke Chapter 5, verse 12, “While [Jesus] was in one of the cities, there came a man full of leprosy.  And when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face and begged him, ‘Lord if you will, you can make me clean.’  And Jesus stretched out his hand…

Complete Restoration for All Unclean, Part 1

Luke 5:12-13 There’s such kindness and compassion and tenderness that this man, Jesus Christ, has toward the least of these.  And I include myself as one of those.  We’re going to get, today, yet another striking picture of that compassion as we see, once again how his mercy is directed by divine purpose and by concern, loving concern.    If you were here…

The Real Meaning of Discipleship

Luke 5:1-11 In chapter 4, Luke showed us how, early in Jesus’ ministry, there were attempts to oppose and distract Jesus from his mission.  The devil tried to tempt him, the people of Nazareth tried to kill him, the people of Capernaum, they tried to keep him all to themselves.  But Jesus resisted temptation, he escaped from harm, he stayed focused on…
