The Gospel According to Luke

The Kingdom Has Come

October 14, 2018 • Ashley Brown

As Jesus heads toward Jerusalem and His crucifixion, the cosmic battle between Him and the spiritual forces of evil are coming to a head. In the midst of this conflict, Jesus continually demonstrates His power over Satan’s demonic forces. Jesus points to His power as proof that the Kingdom of God has come, and the rule and power of Satan is being broken in Jesus’ ministry.

The Lord's Prayer

October 7, 2018 • Ashley Brown

Throughout the Gospel according to Luke we read of Jesus praying. At times it is in the midst of a large crowd. At other times it is in the seclusion of night on a mountain top. Regardless, one thing Luke wants us to understand is that Jesus was a man of prayer, so it should not surprise us that Jesus’ disciples asked Him to teach them to pray as well. Today we will study Jesus’ lesson on prayer.

The Good Samaritan

September 30, 2018 • Ashley Brown

God calls us to love Him with all of our being and to love our neighbors as ourselves. But what does it mean to love our neighbor? Who is our neighbor? To answer these questions, Jesus told a story about a man who encountered someone in need. This story - The Good Samaritan - challenges the ways we seek to justify ourselves and points us to the true and better Good Samaritan: Jesus.

Announcing the Kingdom

September 23, 2018 • Larry Kroon

In and through the person of Jesus, God’s King, the Kingdom of God approached the towns and villages along the road to Jerusalem. It was dark territory long held captive in Satan’s cosmic rebellion against God’s rule. Seventy-two messengers were sent ahead into the darkness to announce the Kings approach. Luke 10 is their story.

Following Jesus

September 16, 2018 • Larry Kroon

In Christian discipleship, direction is set by Jesus. He leads. We follow. Periodically we need be reminded of that basic reality – clearly and firmly. Luke chapter nine was one of those basic reminder moments for the first disciples. In the reading of it, we are brought back to the simple reality that following Jesus means following Jesus.

Continuing the Story

September 9, 2018 • Larry Kroon

Today we resume our extended sermon series in the Gospel of Luke with a return to God's confirming declaration and commanding directive with respect to his Son as found in Luke 9:35. We do so with the prayer that as we continue on through the Gospel of Luke, the Word of God and the Spirit of God would shape our hearts around the reality of the Son of God.

The Voice of God Concerning Jesus

April 8, 2018 • Larry Kroon

As we have progressed through the Gospel of Luke one question has risen above all others. “Who is Jesus?” The crowds had their many and varied opinions. In all the confusion the disciples had eventually arrived at the right conclusion – but did not yet understand where it led. In confirmation, God spoke to the question – directly and personally with both a concise answer and a clear command.

The Confession of Peter

April 1, 2018 • Larry Kroon

One question has dominated the middle of Luke: “Who is Jesus?” Over the past several weeks we have seen numerous answers to that question, each one providing a slightly different perspective toward the final answer. Jesus is the forgiver of sins, a teller of parables, the tamer of storms, a binder of demons, a healer of the sick, the raiser of the dead, the provider for His people. Today we will hear the Apostle Peter’s declaration that Jesus is the Christ.

Take Care Then How You Hear

February 25, 2018 • Joel Stamoolis

Jesus, who has authority to give life and to forgive (Luke 7) calls us to come to him, hear his words, and do them (Luke 6). As we start into Luke 8, Jesus gives several word pictures to help us see what it looks like to come, hear, and do, what are some of the challenges, and why it is worth it.
