Sermons on Luke (Page 3)
We all know the pain of waiting. But what about waiting for over 400 years! God’s people had been waiting for the messiah, the promised one. Listen as Pastor Dave shows how Jesus is this promised one and how all our needs are met in Him.
At the end of Luke 23, things look pretty bad for Jesus’ followers. They have seen him, the one who was meant to redeem Israel, tortured and crucified. They are grief stricken (23:48). And yet, by the end of Luke 24, we read this; “And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God” (24:53). What has happened? How do these cold, sad hearts become warm, joyful hearts? The answer, of course, is that the Crucified King has become the Risen King! Listen as we explore Luke 24 and consider what Jesus’ followers saw that made their cold hearts warm.
