Insiders and the Energy of God  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 4: 21–30
Summary: Jesus’ visit to the town he grew up in is not a sentimental journey he makes to bask in his success. He has a message for his hometown audience that he knows will be hard for them to hear. That message is: “It’s not about us. We were not called and chosen and set apart to enjoy God’s life-giving energy and keep it for ourselves. We are called to bring the love of God to the world, to join God in calling all people to be the People of God.”

Before Jesus Gets Specific  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 4: 14–21
Summary: By reading only the first part of Jesus’ sermon, we learn that the promises of the Spirit, the good news, release and healing, come from God before we respond. God’s offer does not depend on our correct response.

Who Tells You Who You Are?  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 4: 21–30
Summary: Jesus’ encounter with the citizens of Nazareth reminds us that people who fail to live up to the expectations of others run the risk of disappointing them, or even making them angry. It is the price we sometimes are forced to pay for living a life of faithfulness to God.

Luke 4: 14–21 for LFM
Summary: Most of our focus as Christians ought to be on today: daily work to do, daily benefits to receive and daily tending to perform. But we also need to keep our todays linked to God’s tomorrow.

Should Jesus Have Been So Specific?  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 4: 21–30
Summary: Although God’s radical love for all people sometimes surprises or even shocks us, we depend on God’s forgiveness and love for our relationship to him. Others do not deserve God’s love, but neither do we. Feeling anger at God’s surprising grace may show us where we need to grow.

Give God a Chance  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 4: 1–13
Summary: Just as Jesus was tempted in the wilderness to give up his mission, so Satan will tempt us to quit. What we need is the vision to give God a chance and defeat the enemy at his own game.

Some Bad News and Some Good News  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 4: 21–30
Summary: We begin with two short stories about a man who refuses to accept a doctor’s diagnosis and a woman who refuses to participate in the general confession in church. The response of the people of Nazareth to Jesus in today’s gospel is similar: They refuse to hear his words about healing and liberation because they don’t think they’re sick or bound. But acceptance of the bad news of sin makes it possible for us to hear the good news of forgiveness, and to rejoice in the scope of God’s saving work.

Buying the Church Off  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 4: 1–13
Summary: Just as the Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness to confront the evil forces, so the Spirit leads the church into the wilderness of the world’s evil. Jesus’ temptations were appetite, prestige and security. Jesus conquered these temptations. The church faces the temptations of appetite, prestige and security as distractions from the ministry to which it is called.

Bursting Bubbles, Speaking Truth  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 4: 21–30
Summary: Jesus was not afraid to correct misconceptions, especially when they were in regard to his identity. Jesus knew how to balance affirmation and challenge when addressing would-be and existing followers. As we see in Jesus’ example, it’s important to speak the truth in love, even when we expect the response to be hostile.

All for One  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 4: 14–21
Summary: The body of believers in a local congregation must, by necessity, work as a unit. If one part of the body suffers, the whole body suffers. If one part of the body succeeds, the whole body benefits. There are many distinct parts or roles that Christians can play within the church. When each of these roles are fulfilled in ways that honor God, the local congregation becomes an effective, life-giving “organism.” God not only appoints people to certain roles, but gives them the desire and ability to fruitfully play those roles out.
