Luke's Midterm - Who Do You Think I Am? (21 of 68)
Series: 30 A.D. The Jesus Story
Pastor Chris Brown
The Right Answer, Wrong Assumptions:
Luke 9:18-27, 4:5-8, Galatians 2:20, Romans 6:1-14, James 4:13-17
Jesus knew that:
Everyone wants a Savior, few can handle a Lord.
We would always focus more on this world than heaven.
We would always focus more on ourselves than others.
We would prefer to be blessed than to be used.
So, what does "taking up our cross" mean?
It's simply a picture of self-denial.
It's a daily decision, not a one time prayer.
It's accepting our assignment in the Kingdom.
Answers to the Midterm:
Luke 9:28-36, 2 Peter 1:12-18, John 3:16-18, 14:6-7
Jesus will never be a part of our lives.
Jesus is, and always will be:
God's only plan
The Lord we follow
