The Better Place
It is far too easy to be distracted in our modern world. There are entire industries dedicated to distracting us from our own free time. Christians are not immune to to distractions, even in our faith. Far too often we lead with the best intentions, but the wrong end goal. This morning Terry takes us through what it means to be living in the kingdom of God in the midst of this world. We are not called to save, or fix the world. That is not our priority. The priority of the family of God is love, so that others may tell we are Christians by our love.
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.
