The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
“The things that are impossible with people are possible with God.” (Luke 18:27)
These are Jesus' words in response to the disciples questioning Him, “And so who can be saved?” Without going into much detail regarding this passage and the context (which we will cover in this Sunday's worship service message), we can find great comfort in knowing that with God it is possible for anyone to be saved. Even the least likely person can be saved by God. For this, we can give thanks to God!
This Sunday, we will be having our Thanksgiving Sunday worship service. Let us prayerfully prepare for the worship service by thinking of all the wonderful and amazing ways God has been at work in our lives this past year. The more difficult and impossible the circumstances in our lives, the more we can have faith in God's deliverance and intervention! Let us truly rejoice in the Lord always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in all circumstances.
