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…

What Not to Worry About

Luke 12:22-28 Well, we are in Luke’s gospel—Luke, chapter 12—and we are looking at the subject of anxiety. If you’re a bottom-line kind of person, I’ll let you know up front that Jesus is against it. You need to know more than that, but Jesus understands worry and anxiety. He knows exactly where those sins come from. He also knows that there…

The Parable of the Covetous Fool

Luke 12:16-21 We are continuing our study in Luke Chapter 12 in the theme we started last week. So if you could find your way to Luke 12, a section on covetousness that started in Luke 12:13 and following. There are a few things I wanted to cover last week that I didn’t get to, but that is one of the benefits…

The Sin Beneath Our Sins

Luke 12:13-15 Turn in your Bibles to Luke Chapter 12, and we will continue to learn from our Lord’s teaching.  Today, we are going to get a brief glimpse into what we are calling, “Jesus’ Community Counseling Ministry,” as a man comes to Jesus to ask for help with a particular problem.  You may remember that while Jesus had been teaching publicly,…
