Luke 2018

Sunday Morning Service

Luke 4:1-13

Sunday Morning Second Service • June 17, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"This is a special story, not about overcoming​, but instead about conquering​. It means we have absolute assurance that no temptation needs to overwhelm us! It means that sin has been defeated."

Luke 3:10-38

Sunday Morning Third Service • June 10, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"The Messiah was coming to separate the wheat (true believers) from the chaff (professing but not genuine believers). The wheat would go into the barn of the Messiah while the chaff will spend eternity in hell being tormented night and day without relief. Hell is not some myth. It is real and it lasts forever. The next time someone tells you they don’t believe in hell, tell them Jesus did and so do you! Just because someone doesn’t believe in it doesn’t make it any less real."

Luke 3:1-9

Sunday Morning First Service • June 3, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"From very early times the message has always remained the same: people who enter God’s kingdom must experience change. I hope this isn’t controversial for anyone here because it is absolutely undeniable. You cannot meet Jesus—KNOW HIM, be known by Him—and not change. It’s God who does the changing and, it’s true, some take longer than others to change, but if you have really been born again, you will experience changes in your life. Not an option."

Luke 2:36-52

Sunday Morning First Service • May 27, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"Notice what Joseph and Mary did for their baby. First, they modeled obedience to God! Second, they raised Jesus to have wisdom from God. Third, they raised Jesus to accept the grace of god in His life. These verses are a great parenting manual!"

Luke 2:19-35

Sunday Morning Third Service • May 20, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"The will of God is not something difficult to find. It's not. Live your life waiting for, wanting the return of Jesus and you will find yourself being moved into position by the Holy Spirit! It's the man or woman who is not eager for the Lord's return, the man/woman who is trying to chart his or her own path, that misses the will of God. We all need to be where we can be moved by the Holy Spirit."

Luke 2:1-19

Sunday Morning First Service • May 13, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"One of the reasons this story never gets old for me, even though it is the most familiar in all the NT, is because I never stop marveling at the fact that God became a baby! One minute receiving worship of angels, the next traveling through a birth canal only to find Himself surrounded by animals, poverty, and low-life shepherds! This is an amazing story--the first Christmas."

Luke 1:57-80

Sunday Morning Third Service • May 6, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"You'll remember that Zechariah's faith failed when Gabriel came to him. But, as God always does, he gets a second chance at faith and does he ever take advantage of it! Scripture is filled with stories of people who failed. Many of those people ended up in Hebrews 11! God always provides another opportunity."

Luke 1:38-56

Sunday Morning First Service • April 29, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"Please hear this--too many of us are afraid of believing that God wants to do great things for us/in us/through us! Too many of us look at our circumstances and conclude that God is not working/won't work in/through us. Too many of us are sad, depressed Christians missing out on God's best for us! Everything God has for us must be/can only be received by faith! By believing God!"

Luke 1:26-38

Sunday Morning Second Service • April 22, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"Our worship and praise goes only to God but our love and respect, even our gratitude, goes out to God for all the wonderful heroes of our faith! Mary is an example to all of us of Godliness and faithfulness. I hope to make that clear as we proceed."

Luke 1:1-25

Sunday Morning Second Service • April 15, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"Luke, the doctor--the man Paul needed. But he was also a New Testament prophet, an accurate historian, and a gentile; that fact alone makes his gospel especially noteworthy." Pastor Ron begins his study of the Gospel of Luke.
