(Luke 15) We all know what it’s like to try and ‘find’ ourselves, yet fail to do so. Whether we’ve searched ‘outside ourselves’ for fulfillment or ‘inside ourselves’ for meaning and worth, we’ve continually come up empty. But Jesus teaches us about the God who loves us and is searching for us! He invites us to ‘be found’ by Him…and that makes all the difference!
(Luke 14:1-24) – Jesus knows all about what it means to attend and host a great banquet. And He reminds us not to settle for the so called ‘banquet’ that this world offers, when God is preparing a ‘kingdom feast’ that is beyond comparison! The invitation has gone out…. The question for us is, ‘Will we be attending?’
(Luke 13:22-30) – Often, people are bothered by Jesus’ unique claims to be the only ‘way’ of salvation. They think this means that God is trying keep people out of heaven. But, nothing could be further from the truth. Jesus explains that the door is narrow – not because God is keeping people out, but because people won’t enter in!
