Commission and Ascension: Jesus' Return to Heaven (Luke 24:45-53).
This is the last sermon in the series on Luke, yet it one of the most important to the faith of the believer. Before Jesus' return to Heaven, He commands all disciples to a commission. This commission is vital to the kingdom of God; we are to be witnesses and proclaim Jesus Christ to the world. This was the same commission of the Apostles and it hasn't changed in over 2000 years. Yet, don't truly understand how we are to do this. To hear how we are to fulfill Jesus' commission, please enjoy this last sermon on Luke's epistle. Let us praise our Lord and savior who still sits at the right hand of God.
The Key that Unlocks the Bible (Luke 24:44-47).
We can't understand it without Him. We couldn't appreciate the depth or wealth of the knowledge contained in it. We won't read it with hunger and desire without Him. This is the Bible and Jesus. Without Jesus; the Bible is nothing more to us than a book of stories. But, with the fulfillment, interpretation, and theme of Jesus; the Bible now become all about Him. If you have a desire to no what the keys to unlock the Bible are; please enjoy this morning's sermon by Pastor Robb. Jesus is present through all of Scripture.
Proof of Jesus' Resurrection (Luke 24:36-43).
Jesus appeared to His disciples, yet they could not comprehend His presence. They thought Jesus was a ghost until He showed His nail-pierced hands and feet. Jesus appeared to show them He had really risen. But, they were living in doubt. The faith of the disciples had disappeared as quickly as it took His followers to place Him in the tomb. Jesus appeared to show them He had truly been resurrected. But, why were they troubled in their hearts? Did the faith of the disciples increase? To see the proof of Jesus' resurrection, please listen to this morning's sermon by Pastor Robb.
Seeing Jesus (Luke 24:28-35)
How do we respond when our hearts are troubled? Do we keep our eyes upon Jesus or do we focus on the troubles around us? We can have fellowship with the Lord because of the price He paid. We can come to the Lord's table with hearts full of joy, peace, and contentment only because He still sits at the head of the table. As we listen to this morning's sermon by Pastor Robb, let us continue to hunger for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and keep our eyes upon Jesus.
