In our modern world we have a tendency to desire immediate results. From checking the mirror directly after a work out, to daily checking on our investments, hoping for some kind overnight miracle. We want it now, not later. We do not usually want to just put our heads down and continue the work. However, as Christians that’s often exactly what need to do. This morning Terry takes us through a closer look at Luke 8:15. We as Christians must work day in and day out to cultivate our hearts. We must listen, retain, and persevere regularly, then we can bear fruit for the Kingdom of God.
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.
