Morning Light – April 23rd, 2018 – Luke 17:  Offenses, and the Coming of the Kingdom

Source: Today: [Luke 17] Offenses, and the Coming of the Kingdom. In Luke 17 Jesus describes a gruesome form of execution as what is in store for those who cause offenses. He goes on to speak of the coming of the kingdom in quite veiled and unique language as “lightning from one part of heaven to another”. When we understand what kind of lightning phenomena He is speaking of, it will inform us of the nature of the coming of the kingdom in a manner that the majority of Christians have never thought of.

Morning Light – April 20th, 2018 – Luke 16:  Stewardship, Clemency, and the Reality of Hell

Source: Today: [Luke 16] Stewardship, Clemency, and the Reality of Hell: When is the last time you let a sinner off the hook? Have you ever conveyed the goodness of God to a sinful person? In the story of the unfaithful steward, Jesus calls upon us to reconcile the sin debt of those around us and in so doing commend them to the clemency of God. Should we make them feel condemned first? Not in the instructions Jesus gives in this chapter of Luke. Hell indeed is real, and its consequences eternal, but our mandate is to proclaim the … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – April 19th, 2018 – Luke 15:  Jesus Hangs Out with Publicans and Sinners

Source: Today: [Luke 15] Jesus Hangs Out with Publicans and Sinners: In Luke 15 the Pharisees are pulling their hair out because they don’t like the company Jesus keeps. Have you irritated a Pharisee lately? In this chapter Jesus lays out a very specific strategy for winning the lost and it has little in common with evangelism as the church understands it. Are you willing to have a meal with a notorious sinner? Then you are on your way to being an soul winner as Jesus defines it in this chapter of the gospel of Luke.

Morning Light – April 18th, 2018 – Luke 14:  The Path of Humility

Source: Today: [Luke 14] The Path of Humility: In Luke 14 Jesus again attends a dinner with a group of Pharisees. At the event, the Pharisees are jostling each other, seeking to sit at the most honorable tables, and embarrassing themselves. Jesus observes this and teaches on the necessity of choosing the path of humility in all our interactions with others. Humility is a potent weapon of spiritual warfare. Without it, our testimony is damaged, and our discipleship made shipwreck, but there is a cost when we choose to follow Jesus no matter what we might endure for doing … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – April 17th, 2018 – Luke 13:  Delivered from Random Happenstance

Source: Today: [Luke 13] Delivered from Random Happenstance: In Luke 13 Jesus discusses the random calamities that befall man and suggests that if we repent we can be protected from such things. Is this true and do you believe it? The world says “stuff happens” as though to suggest that things indiscriminately occur, at times catastrophically, and there is nothing that can be done. Jesus on the other hand declares plainly that if we change our mind and repent about these unbelieving suppositions, we can actually experience divine protection at a level beyond what we can imagine.

Source: [Today: Luke 12 Part 2] In this portion of Luke 2 Jesus speaks of stewardship and reward in a context that is familiar to us but at the same time greatly undiscerned for its spiritual richness. He begins with observation about the things that a man treasures and the degree to which those priorities are always top of mind and in fact producing and radically impacting the character and quality of our lives. [Luk 12:34-59 KJV] 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 35 Let your loins be girded about, and [your] lights … (click link or title to continue)

Luke 11 Today: [Luke 11] Jesus, Teach us to Pray: In Luke 11 (Part 1) Jesus concerns Himself with conveying to us what the character of our prayer life should be. The early Christians were known to greet one another with the words “do I find you praying…” If the disciples were in fact men and women of prayer, then the prayer they emulated was found in the prayer life of Jesus, witnessed by the apostles, taught upon extensively by Jesus Himself, and passed down to you and me. Do I find you praying? If you are found in prayer, … (click link or title to continue)
