All Cleaned Up and Nowhere to Go

Fake it until you make it. That phrase has some resonance within the community of faith as the intention to live out our faith even when we don’t feel like it, or even when it seems God is absent—living faithfully even when doubts creep into our mind. Living by faith is still the key. The Pharisees had a problem; they were faking it and thought they had it made. You see, it’s not too hard to clean p the outside that everyone can see, and leave the inside defiled and dirty. Jesus asks a poignant question, “did not the one who made the outside make the inside also?” In sharing Jesus’ teaching, Terry encourages a humble response.

Series Information

Terry proclaims the one Gospel through the history, research, rememberings and faith expressed in the text of the Gospel According to Luke. Jesus himself is the good news expressed by Luke. Beginning with the birth narratives unique to Luke's presentation, the good news of the Kingdom explodes into faithful view as each account, teaching, parable and event lived out and offered by Jesus, the Messiah-King, is examined the way Luke seemingly examined Jesus in his own work. Here we find a Jesus to love, a Jesus to follow, and ultimately a Jesus to worship.
