Luke 7:39

Failing is something we have all done, from messing up on the job, to not remembering you were supposed to bring that one thing home. We have all missed the mark a few times. It’s not always major but we all have failed. In most cases we are forgiven by whoever we may have failed, or find out that we did not fail them at all. Tonight Terry takes us through a portion of Jesus' conversation with Simon the Pharisee. We learn that missing the mark is not always what it seems. Our failings are often a symptom of a much deeper problem. We miss the mark when are not in fellowship and communion with the Lord.

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.
