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.
Last Sunday, we looked at the test of greatness according to Jesus. He based greatness, ultimately, in how we relate to people in relationship to Him. The challenge for us is to remember that we belong to God in Christ, and be His humble and obedient servant representatives in this world. It was hard for the apostles, who were chosen by Jesus to follow Him with greater fervency and commitment, so it is no wonder that anyone can follow Jesus at all. Which brings us to today’s portion of Scripture, and the topic of the cost of following Jesus. Today, we will look together at Luke 9:51-62.
Currently we don't have a video recording of the sermon.
