How to Be an Excellent Disciple: Humility

Luke 6:41-42 We’re coming to the conclusion on the Sermon on the Mount. And we’re actually in a little series here at the end of this Sermon on the Mount, identifying principles that lead us to excellence in discipleship.  Jesus, as we’ve been saying, he gives us here four principles of discipleship in this final section, Luke 6:39-49.  It starts with the…

How to Be an Excellent Disciple

Luke 6:39-49 We’re going to be looking at the final section of that sermon that starts in Luke 6:39 and runs all the way to the end of the chapter.  This is the third major section of the Sermon on the Mount.  In the first section, which ran from verses 20-26, Jesus identified his true disciples as the poor, the weeping, the…

What Makes Us Truly, Gloriously Different

Luke 6:32-35 Turn in your Bibles, if you haven’t already, to Luke 6:32. Luke 6:32. We’re gonna be looking this morning at some extremely penetrating and searching words from our Lord Jesus Christ, here in the Sermon on the Mount. Luke 6:32-35. Jesus says, “If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those…

Love Your Enemies, Part 2

Luke 6:29-30 There in Luke 6.  And we’ll be starting verse 27.  We were introduced last time to Jesus’ command, “Love your enemies,” and we tried to think carefully about what love really is.  And then how to practice that love toward others and our enemies in particular.  Today, we’re going to move ahead.  We’re going to consider some of these implications…

Love Your Enemies, Part 1

Luke 6:27-28 We’re gonna get into Luke 6:27 this morning. Last Sunday as you know, we got a broad overview of the entire sermon. But today we want to drill down into the details. Starting with Jesus’ opening imperative, in verse 27, love your enemies, love your enemies. This is about practicing the full extent of divine love. This is the way…

Becoming Disciples of Divine Love

Luke 6:27-49   Luke 6:27.  We are continuing our study of Luke and his unique and powerful record of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.  We have noted before that this sermon, the Sermon on the Mount, may be Jesus’ most famous sermon.  His most well-known sermon.  It contains the Beatitudes, which we’ve already studied and come through.  It also contains like well-known…

Blessed Are the Despised

Luke 6:22-23 We are studying the beatitudes, which is the introduction to Jesus’ most well-known sermon.  The, this introduction to the sermon, I think, it my mind anyway, it’s been nothing short of revolutionary.  Not in the political sense, not in any social, economical, or political statement.  Any of that would be too shallow for this.  Jesus, this is revolutionary in the…

Blessed Are the Weeping

Luke 6:21 “Luke 6:21: Blessed are you who weep now for you shall laugh.”  Want to begin though, as we have been doing, by reading the whole section, the beatitudes in Luke’s gospel, “Luke 6:20-26.”  And, I think probably by now you ought to have these beatitudes memorized, because we keep reading it week after week.  And I, personally, never get tired…

Blessed Are the Hungry

Luke 6:21 Luke Chapter 6.  Today, we’re looking at the second beatitude in Luke’s account of the Sermon on the Mount.  We spent, as you know, the last two weeks on that first beatitude, “Blessed are you who are poor, you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.”  And that really is the thesis verse for the beatitudes and…

Joy in the Wealth of Poverty

Luke 6:20 This morning, we’re really continuing a message we began last week.  We want to understand more fully, more completely what Jesus meant by what he said and implications for us.  It’s been 12 years since sociologist Christian Smith published his book called “Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers.”  The book came out in, back in 2005,…
