Pastor’s Pen – September 2016

For some weeks now we have been continuing our study of Luke’s gospel. Luke tells us that the purpose of his gospel is to give an orderly account so that we can know the certainty of the things taught about Jesus. So just what have we discovered about Jesus in our current study?

We have seen that Jesus has authority over nature, as He calmed the storm (Luke 8:22-25).

We have seen that Jesus has authority over demons (Luke 8:26-33).

We have seen that Jesus has authority over illness (Luke 8:40-48).

We have seen that Jesus has authority over death (Luke 8:49-56).

We have seen Jesus give authority to His followers (Luke 9:1-9 & 10:1-23).

We have seen Jesus feed the 5000 (Luke 9:10-17).

We have seen Jesus revealed in His glory (Luke 9:28-36).

The question for us is then “who do you say Jesus is?” Will you join with Peter in answering “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.” If so, what effect does that have on your life?
