Believing Means Doing
In our current world people always love to say they believe or want to believe. Whether it be something said or something they can even see. The problem is never believing something, it’s always the doing, the follow through for proof. As Christians, we too, seem to do this often. We will pay lip service to our belief, but when the time comes to follow through, we fall short. This morning Terry takes us through Jesus fielding a question from a man of the law in his time. We must do much more than just say the part of Christianity, we must live in a way that proves it. Our very lives must point to our belief in Christ.
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.
