Follow Me to Joy
Following is an interesting term in the modern social climate. We are following people on this or that social media network; we follow various people's careers and leadership throughout our life. It can help us stay connected to those we care about. However, following people can start to create certain feelings as we can begin to compare ourselves and our lives to others. This can leave us with a feeling of discontent and rob us of our joy. This morning Terry takes us through a bit of a different take on following other people. As Christians we are to follow Jesus' and his example for our lives. We must always be seeking his plan for our lives, for he will lead us into true, everlasting joy.
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.
