As we begin the journey through the book of Luke, I thank you for taking this serious enough to look through these discussion questions. Our prayer is that these questions will continue to point you deeper into the Word of God this week. If we can help you find a community, called a Life Group, to walk these questions out with please let us know.
As we study the book of Luke together on Sunday Mornings we will see a deeper understanding of the person of Jesus. So often we can explain the details of a sporting event, movie, book … (none of that is bad by the way), but we have a hard time explaining the details of the life of Jesus. We know the highlights and what He came to do, but can we explain them? This week my family and I went to a Riverdogs game and had a blast. At one point the bases were loaded with one out. Myrtle Beach Pelican player hit a grounder to the short stop who ended up turning two (baseball lingo) with the second baseman. One of the females in my family (will not name) said, throw it home … Why did he not throw it home … Cade and I enjoyed explaining that play and why that was the best situation. We can see a play take place, but knowing the details of play makes so much more sense. Same with Jesus!
My prayer for us as a church family is that we will gain a better way to infuse conversations about Jesus into our regular daily encounters with family, friends and co-workers due to the way we are now becoming more comfortable with the life of Jesus.
