The Road to the Cross

The Narrow Door

March 19, 2017

Bible Text: Luke 13:22-30 |

Series:

In this sermon we take a look at Jesus's response to the question of how many people are going to be saved and end up with God in the Kingdom at the end of human history?"

About the sermon series:

In Luke 9:51, after spending 9 chapters telling us who Jesus is, Luke, the author, tells us this one very important detail: “As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.” Just earlier in that same chapter the lights went on for the disciples and they began, imperfectly, to realise that Jesus was the Messiah, God’s king sent to redeem his people. Following that revelation Jesus takes them even further in their understanding of himself and his mission, and he tells them that he’s going to be handed over to the authorities and die at their hand. In fulfillment of that prediction he resolutely heads to Jerusalem to face his death.

Absolute Allegiance

Bible Text: Luke 9:51-62 |

Series:

This sermon is the first one in our series The Road to the Cross. In this passage we listen in on three of Jesus's interactions with his followers and see that in order to journey with Jesus we need to give him nothing less than our full allegiance.

As a congregation, we’re on a journey to Easter. Over the next few weeks we are journeying with Jesus through Luke’s gospel, as he journeys to the very first Easter, listening to what he says along the way, and observing what he does along the way. We’ll see the Son of God resolutely committed to obeying his Father, by redeeming the broken, the sinful, the despairing, and the lost.
