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.
“But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that during your life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.’” (Luke 16:25-26)
The verses above are part of the Scripture passage for is Sunday's worship service message which is Luke 16:19-31, and the title for the message that I had selected months ago is "Living Well In This World And The Next". It is Jesus telling the story of Lazarus and the Rich Man. Praying the message will help us to truly think about living well in Christ.
For this Sunday's worship service, we will look together at Luke 16:1-18, and the title of the message is "Being Faithful to God."
