Message: “02 Prepare Yourself” from Reid Kapple

02 Prepare Yourself

The message of repentance is good news because it is the front door to the good news of the gospel. Repentance is what makes the sweetness of salvation sweeter, the joy of our justification more joyful, the freedom of our forgiveness more freeing. The best way to hear the good news of Jesus’ loving forgiveness is to first hear the bad news of your brokenness. Because the straightest way to Jesus is owning up to our crookedness. For when we do we find Jesus standing ready and able to forgive us and call us his own. Amen Are we prepared to hear Jesus? Prepare Yourself Luke 1:1-22 January 12, 2020 Reid Kapple

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.
