To be known as Jesus’ disciples through actions that are motivated by love for God, for each other, and for those who suffer spiritually and physically.
This morning, we continue through the first chapter of Luke with scripture coming from Luke 1:5-56.
In Genesis 18:14, the Lord promised Abraham and Sarah a son in their old age, asking: “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” 2,000 years later the angel Gabriel came to Mary, a virgin, to inform her that she would carry the Son of God, Himself, and that her aged relative Elizabeth was already 6-months pregnant. He concluded with the statement: “For nothing is impossible with God.” The challenge to believe God is not new. As Luke opens his gospel account he immediately confronts our own sense of reality which begs the question we ask this morning: “Do you believe?”
“…so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.”
Steve begins a series from the Gospel of Luke aimed at helping us all to know Christ better. This morning focuses on laying the groundwork behind how and why “the beloved physician” compiled the accounts of Christ’s life, how it differs from the perspective of the other Gospel writers, and how it is beneficial to us for study. Scripture is taken from Luke 1:1-4.
This morning, we have a chance to hear from Kevin Ramso about his summer spent working with kids at Summer camp and the mission it became for him. Additionally, Steve speaks on the importance of first “knowing Christ” if we wish to be known as His disciples. Scripture is taken primarily from Philippians 3:7-14.
