The Gospel Project: Unit 21, Session 2
Jesus Reveals His Mission. Luke 4
Point 2: Jesus Predicts He would be Rejected like the Prophets. Luke 4:23-27
Jesus just finished telling them that the Spirit of the Lord was on him,
-that He is anointed
-He is preaching the gospel
-reovering the sight of the blind
-giving liberty to those oppressed, to captives..
Quoting Isaiah they understood He was demonstrating that He fulfills Scripture. Then He says, "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing."
Elijah-rejected by his people-took salvation to a gentile woman during famine.
Elisha-rejected by his people-took healing to a gentile man, Naaman, the leper.
What was Jesus telling His fellow citizens?
Has my house, my city, my state, my country Rejected Chrst?
One way to know that you are God's, He will pursue you! He gets into my dreams, for me anyway, is to wake up singing a hymn. Today it was Jesus is Calling..O' sinner come home. The Holy Spirit can always touch my heart, He can easily Correct me through song. So I arose, kneeled, confessed, repented, released myself to God.
When I get "too busy" for The Word, etc He finds me. What an AWESOME FATHER!
