Jesus is the One
Fear is a universal emotion, we all feel it sometimes. Whether it be fear from the 24 hour news cycle or fear to talk to that one person at work. If we aren’t careful fear can rule our lives. We can begin to let it take control over our other emotions and our actions, informing and controlling everything we do and say. However we, as Christians, are not called to be afraid. This morning takes us through the fear the disciples felt when with Jesus. Fear does not well represent those who are following Christ. We must focus on nothing else but Jesus. Jesus is the one, and in him, we have no need for fear.
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.
