(Luke 13:18-21) – We’ll also learn from scripture, how God specializes in using what seems like insignificant spiritual ‘inroads’ to bring about serious influence and expansion for His Kingdom. Like a mustard seed, or a pinch of leaven, all God needs is an ‘entry point’ to bring change to our lives…our community…and our world!
(Luke 12:4-12) Do we trust and reverence God more than we fear the opinion & opposition of people? The answer we give to that question has huge ramifications for our faith! Jesus modeled for us a life that consistently chose faith over fear – and He call us as His disciples to do the same.
(Luke 9:44-50) – How do we measure “greatness?” Most of us probably think of greatness in terms of power, fame, wealth, stature or influence; and we spend all too much time & effort posturing and comparing ourselves to others. Yet, Jesus shows us that the path of true greatness lies in humble and selfless service.
(Luke 9:37-43) – We all know what it is like to enjoy “mountaintop experiences” in life. We also know what it is to face “valleys.” But the saving & transforming grace of God is not limited by our “highs” and “lows.” The Lord touches us on the highest mountains and reaches us in the deepest valleys.
Luke 6:1-11 It is not legalistic adherence to rules, but God’s mercy and grace that motivate me to live holy and pleasing to him.
