Sermons on Luke

I believe that God desires to know us and walk with us and indwell us and fellowship with us on an individual basis. He wants each one of us, you and I, to know Him personally. And I believe that He would go out of His way and brave a storm and put His disciples in danger for your sake. Do you believe that? That He loves you so much that He would put Himself and those that He's called into danger to come and rescue you?

Luke 8:26-39

I believe God cares for us individually. He cares for us as nations, and He cares for us as peoples, He cares for us corporately. But I believe that God desires to know us and walk with us and indwell us and fellowship with us on individual basis. He wants each one of us, you and I, to know Him personally. And I believe that He would go out of His way and brave a storm and put His disciples…
If Jesus has asked you to do something, guess what? It's not going to fail.

Luke 8:19-25

“Therefore, consider carefully how you listen.” How did you listen this week? Were you listening this week? Were your ears open to the things of God. You know, I mentioned last week, I have people tell me all the time, “God doesn’t speak to me. I never hear God speak to me. Because I don’t hear God speak to me, that must mean He’s not speaking to me.” Not true. And I don’t want to call you a liar if…
Jesus brought a simple message. A message of good news... I love you. Do you believe that? Can you receive that?

Luke 8:1-18

I’m very thankful that Jesus knows who I am and is still willing to let me interact with Him; is still willing to let me be a part of Him. Jesus knows what’s going on in our hearts, and there is not one of us in this room — and I don’t know what your circumstances in life are, but let me tell you something. The Bible says you are a sinner. the Bible says that you have fallen short.…
The only way that you'll have peace in your life is to enter into relationship with Jesus Who forgives sin, to be grateful when He forgives you of that sin, to love in response because He has forgiven you of that sin, and when you love Him, you love others because He loves others.

Luke 7:36-50

They couldn’t get away from the feelings of guilt that they walked around with every day, and Jesus says there’s a way to deal with it. It’s called grace through faith. Do you believe you can be forgiven of your sin in your life? Of your past? Of the things that you’ve done that you know are wrong?… That’s where forgiveness starts: is in the heart. Do you believe it or not? Can you accept it or not? And understand…
This Book means everything. It's not the paper and the ink that it's made of, but it is the Word that this Book contains. Do you believe God's Word?

Luke 7:18-35

So often I find in our lives that we do not recognize the authority of God. We see His power working all around us. We see His creation. We see His handiwork. But yet, when we get into trouble, how do we handle it? When we have need, how do we handle it? We take matters into our own hands so many times because we don’t recognize the authority of God, and we don’t recognize the name of Jesus as…
Guys, pay attention to who you're learning from. Don't just go out and listen to every philosophy that's on the market. Pay attention to what's being taught. Is it bringing you to a place of seeing your need to draw closer to Jesus?

Luke 6:37-49

We don’t like some of these verses because it means that we, then, have to reevaluate our lives, but the verses are there. And the one thing I promised the Lord many years ago when He called me to be a pastor was that, even if I didn’t like the verse, I would not eliminate the verse or try to change the verse. And sometimes, now, I eat those words. I regret having made that promise, because it’s made me…
Why do we pray? We pray because God wants us to be involved with Him. God wants us talking to Him, and He wants to talk to us... Why do we pray? So we can now God's heart and God's desire. So that we can be right with Him, and we can draw close to Him.

Luke 6:12-36

(The first 30 seconds has some distortion.) You know, the one question I get asked more than any other question, “Why do we pray? What is the purpose? If God already knows all things, why do we pray?” We pray because God wants us involved with Him. God wants us talking to Him, and He wants to talk to us. Just because He already knows all things, we don’t know all things, and He wants us to show interest in…
God's Word is not meant to be manipulated for our comfort... God's Word is meant to touch our hearts right now at this moment, to change what's going on in here.

Luke 6:1-11

How many of you want to be worthy of God’s attention? All of us want to be worthy of God’s attention! We want God to notice us. Well, let me fill you in on a little secret. God has already noticed you, whether you’re worthy or not. And by the way, let me fill you in on another little secret. You are not worthy. None of us will ever be worthy of God’s attention, but that’s the amazing thing about…
And so if...you think that somehow you're so bad that God can't forgive you...get that thought out of your mind because Jesus came...so that you could understand His love for you. He brings you a marriage proposal, ...to be part of Him into eternity.

Luke 5:27-39

Jesus will always take care of what it is that is hurting us. Always. Even if sometimes He allows us to suffer in the flesh physically with some things, it’s not the flesh that truly hurts us. This flesh is going to fall away some day… One day, Jesus is going to end this life. He’s going to take us away from this flesh. What really hurts us is that Spirit that is going to be taken away when we…
I believe we will do ourselves a service if we will put in the back of our minds, "Lord, I am willing if You have something for me to do... If You will put the words in my mouth, I will open my mouth, and I am willing."

Luke 5:1-11

I believe we will do ourselves a service if we will put in the back of our minds, “Lord, I am willing if You have something for me to do. If the people come, if my neighbor shows up, if I see the broken down car, if I’m standing in the grocery store line and I see the look of worry on my neighbor’s face, Lord, I’m willing. If You will put the words in my mouth, I will open…
The only teaching that is going to have authority to change your life, to penetrate your heart, to motivate you, is teaching that comes from the Word of God... It's not man's opinion... The reason we don't have changed lives today is because we ignore God's Word.

Luke 4:31-44

There’s a lot of teaching in the world today…but the only teaching that is going to have authority to change your life, to penetrate your heart, to motivate you, is teaching that comes from the Word of God, that is the Word of God. It’s not a man’s opinion. I’ll tell you, I’ve said this many times, but pastors who actually teach from God’s Word and get to expound upon it as I do, are blessed that we get to…
Let people know that there is good news for them. We are no longer lost or bound by sin, but there is One that came to free us from that. If we are lost and bound by sin, it is because we choose that bondage, not that there isn't a way for us to be free from it.

Luke 4:14-30

Sometimes we fall into the trap of taking God’s Word and using it to justify our position: who we are, what we want to do. God’s Word was not given to us to justify us. God’s Word was given to us so that we would know God in a greater way, that we could draw close to Him, that we could understand His heart, that we could be motivated to serve Him through His Word. And so often, what I…
