How You Listen
When someone is called “a good listener” it is high praise, however that is because it is a rare trait in our world. Most people do not like to listen, most of the time they are focused on what they have to say. The consequences of this is that often times we miss the point that the other speaker is saying. We never fully understand what they are saying. Today takes us through what it means to truly listen. As Christians we must learn and be ready to listen. We must be attentive and open to hear what God has to say in our 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.
