“Transformation by learning Jesus from the inside-out” Sermon Series 7th Jan – 31st Mar 2024

“When an egg is broken from outside, it is food; when broken from the inside, it is life.” (anonymous)

Each of the four gospels has its own unique theology based on its selection of material. In this sermon series, ten (10) passages unique to Luke’s gospel have been selected. These texts highlight the theological ideas of the gospel of Luke, which places special emphasis on the theme of “reversal,” meaning that people who appear to be godly, spiritual, and honoured on the outside are not as good as those who seem to be less spiritual on the outside. In fact, God values our inside and our heart, not just the outside. So we should reflect on whether we are truly godly from the inside-out by studying these ten (10) exclusive passages of Luke.
