Blessing Upon Us
In our society of excess and over abundance, we often take things for granted. From food, to entertainment, we have an overwhelming amount of options, and we can always get more and society continues to create more and seek more opulent things in all fields. Unfortunately and fortunately with all this abundance, we can forget what it means to be truly hungry, what it means to be truly bored. Tonight Terry continues our study through The Feeding of the 5000, from a different angle. We must be hungry for Jesus, his words, and his ways. We must seek more his word, and his kingdom, than we do anything earthly. For earthly things can be fleeting but Christ is everlasting.
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.
