Luke

Luke 8:22-25 In this powerful demonstration of his authority over nature, Jesus asserts his claim as the Creator of all things. The question is: Can we put our trust in him who has complete control in all situations?

Luke 7:36-50 At a baptism, we see a person publicly declare their love for Christ. Why does someone do this? Indeed, why does anyone “go public” with their faith, whether in baptism, or simply by publicly living for Jesus in daily life? Because they know, like the woman in our story, that through Jesus, their many sins have been forgiven. To be loved and forgiven by Christ will overflow in the way we publicly love and live for Jesus.

Luke 19:28-44 As Jesus approached Jerusalem riding on a young donkey, the crowd of excited pilgrims and disciples shouted praises to God. It was as if they were welcoming a royal procession. But will they recognise Jesus as the righteous and victorious King?

Have we misidentified Jesus?

Luke 18:31-43 As we open our Easter series in the book of Luke, it’s important to reflect on exactly who Jesus is. While the question may sound simple, perhaps the Jesus we have in our heads isn’t quite the whole picture of the chosen Messiah spoken about in the Bible. In this account of Jesus’ interaction with the blind beggar, we see that in order to recognise the real Jesus, we must understand his authority, mercy, and mission.

A tale of two sinners

Luke 7:36-50 Someone said there are only two types of people in this world: sinners who admit it and sinners who don’t. Whatever our lives look like, the one great certainty is that we all ‘fall short of God’s glory’ and we all need God’s forgiveness. But do we realise that? It’s very possible to have a ‘holier-than-thou’ attitude like the Pharisee in the story, and miss the overflowing joy that comes when we appreciate how much we owe to…

The Disciples’ Journey

Luke 9:51-10:4 Discipleship calls for single-minded clarity, and is to be lived out in a world that hates and opposes you, but can be lived confidently because we are children of God’s grace and eternal salvation.

The Prodigal Son

Luke 15 In this chapter Jesus outlines three parables which teach us about the nature of repentance in the Kingdom of God

You’re invited!

Luke 14:1-24 People make all kinds of excuses for refusing to accept Jesus. In the Parable of the Great Banquet, Jesus shows us that unless we accept him, we will never eat at the great banquet in the kingdom of God. We’re all invited. But will we be there? It all depends on how we respond to Jesus.
