Mission Ready

For many decades the motto for the Boy Scouts of America has been "be prepared", teaching young men to be ready for anything. Today Terry takes us to Luke 4:1-2, where Jesus is being led into the desert by the Spirit for 40 days and being tempted by the devil, and in these verses shows us that Jesus isn't being led to the desert to see if he can pass the test and worthy of being our Messiah, but rather showing us what it is to be prepared for anything, including temptations, faith in God, and being ready for whatever mission that God has in store for us. Listen as we discover again the importance of not only listening to God's call, but acting upon it.

Series Information

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.
