In You, God Is Well Pleased
There is a popular children's book, entitled "Guess How Much I Love You", that been read at bedtime to children for many years, partly because it's a cute book, but mostly because it talks about a big question that is in most children's minds - how much does my mom/dad/aunt/grandparent/etc. love me? As a Christian, this question gets asked as well - how much does God love me? Tonight Terry brings us to Luke 3:22 and 38 and shows us specifically how much God loves us, something that is good for us to remember on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis.
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.
