Christ’s Call to Would-Be Disciples

We’re going to be in the last part of Luke 9. We’re actually finishing up that ninth chapter, hopefully today, and be back in chapter 10 next week—a very pivotal…

The Model of Missionary Mercy, Part 2

Luke 9:51-56 We are returning to the text that we started last week—Luke 9:51-56. We’re studying Jesus, the model of missionary mercy. As we studied last week, we see that Jesus came to show mercy. God sent him to show mercy. Jesus came to show mercy, to minister God’s mercy to a people in need. He ministered to many immediate physical needs,…

The Model of Missionary Mercy, Part 1

Luke 9:51 The theme of mercy, compassion—all those are connected to the attribute of God called the attribute of goodness, the goodness of God. The extension of the goodness of God is the love of God—that attribute of God. And flowing out of the goodness and love of God is God’s mercy, his grace, and forbearance and patience—mercy being that attribute of…

Greatness, the Antidote to Pride

Luke 9:46-48 Well, we’re back in Luke’s Gospel this week, and I’d invited you to turn in your Bibles to the end of Luke chapter 9—Luke 9:46.

We’re coming up into chapter 9 and most recently, they have been north of Galilee, up above the Sea…

How to Grow Strong in Faith, Part 2

Luke 9:42-45 All that is Grace Church is explained by the resurrection and the resurrection power. It’s the power that raised Christ from the dead, conquered the grave, claimed victory over death itself. That’s the power that saves people, literally, saves lives, saves and sanctifies, transforms people, making them into something that they never were, never could be by any other human…

How to Grow Strong in Faith, Part 1

Luke 9:37-45 We are returning to Luke 9:37-45, so you’ll want to turn there in your Bibles. And we are learning, here, the importance of having a strong, strong faith, the importance of believing God, the vital importance of trusting wholly and consistently in Christ and his Word, his promises, his truth. And as we saw last week, that’s something that most…

Whose Faith Failed?

Luke 9:37-41 We’re in Luke 9:37-45. This is another amazing, fascinating portion of Scripture, but one that’s often and widely misunderstood. So this morning we get to rejoice in clarity, especially considering the subject of the necessity of exercising faith. Let’s start, as we like to do, reading the text. Then I’ll have a few words of introduction. Let’s look at Luke…

The Exclusive Glory of Jesus Christ

Luke 9:32-36 Open your Bibles and turn to Luke 9. We’re going to be returning, here, to Luke’s account of the Transfiguration. Luke 9:28-36. We actually started this account last week and learned about the setting for the Transfiguration. We heard about the unveiling of Christ’s divine glory, the meeting, then, that took place up on the mountain between Jesus, Moses, and…

The Unveiling of Jesus Christ

Luke 9:28-31 Open Bibles to Luke chapter 9, and verse 28. We’ve come to a place in Luke’s Gospel of particular wonder, and God, here, by the Spirit, is giving us a brief look behind the veil to see the glory of Jesus Christ. That’s what’s on display, here, in Luke 9:28-36. So without further ado, let’s get right into the text.…
