Sermons in Luke

 

The Shepherd’s Perspective

by Russ Hiebert

December 22, 2019 | Luke 2:1-20

When the angel of the Lord announced to the shepherds the birth of Christ, their circumstances, closeness to the event and the change it brought about gave them a special perspective on this first Christmas.

 

Simeon’s and Anna’s Perspective

by Joe Boot

December 15, 2019 | Luke 2:22-38

There is a sense of anticipation for Simeon and Anna as they beheld the infant Christ on his day of dedication in the temple because he was the fulfillment of God's promise both to the world and to them.

 

Mary’s Perspective

by David Robinson

December 8, 2019 | Luke 1:26-56

This sermon considers the Gospel account of the Annunciation and the Magnificat. Luke’s account presents God’s Word to Mary and her response. God’s Word and God’s call has come to each one of us, just as it came to Mary. Each one of us must respond, just as Mary did. She shows us how to respond: we surrender to God’s calling and we glorify him and rejoice in him.

 

Zechariah’s Perspective

by David Robinson

December 1, 2019 | Luke 1:5-25, 57-80

As a priest in the temple; the father of John the Baptist; the husband of Elizabeth, a relative of Mary; and, like Mary, also a recipient of a visit by the angel Gabriel; Zechariah was given a very unique perspective on the coming of the Messiah.

 

About My Father’s Business

by David Robinson

His Name is John

by Michael Boot

Searching for Truth: The Great Bar

by Joe Boot

April 27, 2014 | Luke 12:13-21

When you deny judgment to a transcendant God at the end of history, final judgment is sought under the kingdom of man.

 

Searching for Truth: The Big Story

by Joe Boot

April 13, 2014 | Luke 24:13-27

The Bible gives us a big story about reality, beginning with paradise lost in Adam's Fall and culminating with paradise restored by Christ's redemption in the cross. God's people cannot merely admire the gospel; we need to rest in it, entrusting our whole beings to God in Christ.

 

The Cradle that Changes Everything

by Joe Boot

December 22, 2013 | Luke 2; Hebrews 1

It was with finality and authorty that God spoke to us by His Son. Old Testament prophecy culminated with the birth of a child who changed everything. With Christ's cradle, grave and resurrection everything is being recreated.

 

The Coming Salvation

by Joe Boot

December 8, 2013 | Luke 2:22-38

The prophetic expectation of the Old Testament was salvation through the Messiah, the seed of the woman, and all history finally focuses in on that moment of promise to Mary. The incarnation is the great miracle of the Bible to which all previous miracles point and all that follow spring from. Christianity is the story of one grand miracle — the incursion and invasion of God into human history in the person of His Son.

 

In My Father’s House

by David Robinson

December 30, 2012 | Luke 2:40-52

Trusting Christ makes us God's children. Like the prodigal son, when we confess, "Father, I've sinned against heaven and against you," He will receive us with rejoicing.

 

The Angel’s Perspective – Peace and Glory

by Joe Boot

December 16, 2012 | Luke 2:1-20

Wherever the gospel message is declared today, God's angels (angelos = messengers) speak.
