Our church can’t get enough of Jesus. Last year we studied the life of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark which shaped our church in significant ways. The theme was “Follow Jesus.” Guess what? People followed Jesus! Coming out of that sermon series we baptized 70 people last summer. Therefore, we are confident that God will accomplish his will in the life of our church during this Luke series.
From now until Easter Sunday we will be reading, discussing, and preaching on The Gospel of Luke chapters 3-15. Because the Gospel of Luke is a lengthy book that takes up 25% of the New Testament, we will go back next January and preach through the second half of the book. Let me give you a quick preview of our series:
Luke, a well-educated doctor and historian, set out to prepare for us an orderly account of the life of Jesus. In order to help us be certain of the things we’ve been taught, Luke spent a significant amount of time compiling critical eyewitness testimony from a variety of sources. His purpose was to proclaim all that Jesus “accomplished among us” (Luke 1:1). What did Jesus accomplish? He came to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10). Being the only non-Jewish writer of the entire New Testament, Luke labored to show that Jesus is for everyone! He sought out the religious and irreligious, the morally astute and astray, the rich and poor, the popular and marginalized. If you think that you aren’t good enough for God or aren’t sure that you are the kind of person God is interested in, Luke reminds us that Jesus is the savior of all. He didn’t come for “someone else” but for people like you and me.
