The Word of God is given so that you can be certain of the truth!
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Luke 1:4 - so you can be certain of the truth of everything you were taught.
Read - Luke 1:1-4
The Old Testament season is gone. The 400 years of the inter-testament times (between Malachi and Matthew) are concluded. The four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) harmonize a new era…an era of grace ushered in by the Son of God - Jesus. Luke writes an accurate account to give us many of the life-giving things that Jesus did. Before he did this, he carefully investigated all the eye-witness reports. When we carefully investigate all the claims about Jesus, we can be certain that He is the Way, Truth and Life.
Lord, I will find Truth in You alone.
Read Colossians 4:14 to see that Luke is actually Dr. Luke. This explains is medical-like precision in carefully writing this gospel account.
The Gospel accounts are given so that we may be saved by believing in and following Jesus. The Old Testament shows the creation (that we are Made by God) and shows the fall (that we are Marred by Sin) but without the Gospels we would be left in that hopeless state. The gospel accounts give us the gospel truth…that we can be Mended by Christ…saved by His once for all time sacrifice. We will study these accounts from now through April 2019 Lord willing.
