Welcome and Expect
Making decisions is not something most humans excel at. From ordering coffee to buying a car, we like to think things over and over. Which then may lead to overthinking, and weighing the pros and cons as if each was equivalent to the weight of the world. This often leads to what is referred to as “paralysis of analysis”. We get so worked up that we couldn’t possibly begin to make a decision. We must avoid this in our relationship with Christ. Terry takes us through Jesus’ arrival in two different cities. We either want a relationship with Jesus, or we don’t. No back and forth. It is that simple. We must welcome and expect Jesus, we must be prepared. Do you want Jesus or not?
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.
