In many fields of study and interests, you will be asked to pay your dues. Now whether this is an actual monetary due, or a measure of time spent doing a certain thing, we must pay this due to continue onto the next level. It’s a way of insuring commitment to the field. This morning Terry takes us through the dues of following Jesus. All along the path, there are costs to being a disciple of Christ. We must be willing to give up everything we hold dear to follow 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.
