How Can I Live Forever?
Eternal Life, living forever, is a bit of a cliche movie trope. A lot of stories have been started under the goal of searching for the fountain of youth or eternal life. It has motivated villains and heroes alike for as long as story telling has existed. However to Christians, eternal life has a different meaning. We often view it as going to heaven when we die. This morning Terry takes us through a different look at the idea of eternal life. Our definition of eternal life as Christians is not fully accurate. We are not called to just believe and wait to die, we are called to live out our faith in our daily lives.
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.
