Message: “02 Integrity – Tempted Slave” from Tim Spanburg

Rediscovering Jesus - Olathe Campus

Jesus is easy to hate. And my fear this morning. For me and all of us. Is that we’re going to hear all this. And throughout this series. Come face to face with the real Jesus. Not the one we imagine, or make in our own image. Not some ridiculous caricature, but the real Jesus we discover right here. That we’ll get one good look. And we’ll let Him pass through our midst. He’ll walk right through here and we’ll push Him away. Instead, church, let’s listen to Him. No matter how hard it is to hear. And church, let’s stop trying to manage Him. Following Him just so long as things go our way. And church, let’s love who He loves. And join Him in His mission of redemption. For all people. And if we do? I love how the Gospel of John sums it up: He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God... (1:11–12). Luke 4, Rediscovering, Jesus, imagine, image, real, listen, follow, receive, manage, excluding Good, Excluding News Luke 4:16-30 January 26, 2020 Nathan Miller

From Series: "Rediscovering Jesus - Olathe Campus"

Jesus of Nazareth. There have been no shortage of opinions offered, books written, responses given to who Jesus was. Some worshipped Him as God. Others thought Him a criminal. The controversy surrounding Jesus followed Him through His life, and it has continued 2,000 years after His death. There is no masking Jesus’ enormous influence on human history. In the midst of all this noise, who was Jesus? Why is He so important to human history? Is Jesus simply someone who agrees, confirms, and approves of everything we already thought and believed? A few decades after the death of Jesus, a man named Luke was wrestling with those questions with his friend, a friend uncertain as to who Jesus was. So Luke set about rediscovering Jesus. He asked Jesus’ friends, he listened to Jesus’ enemies, and worked hard to give us the account of just who Jesus really was. Luke was convinced Jesus had good news for us. Life changing news. Rest for the anxious. Healing for the broken. Freedom for the trapped. Luke rediscovered Jesus. He wrote about Jesus, so that we could rediscover Jesus.
