Learning from Luke: Preparing the Way Today

Learning from Luke: Preparing the Way Today Sermon Audio Here


Luke 3:10-18

Preparations being made to depart for a trip – how to decide what to take, what to leave, what to do, what not to do in a new place?

How Does John Prepare The Way?

Practical Preparation for the Kingdom
Luke 3:10-14

  • v10 In response to John’s warnings: “make His paths straight” Yeah but HOW?
  • v11 Ordinary: care for the needy
  • v12/13 Rich: don’t take advantage of others
  • v14 Powerful: don’t use power for your own ends

Personally Pointing to the Kingdom
Luke 3:15-18

  • v15 these verbs describe an immediate response; the people hear John’s challenge, and they start wondering if John is the Messiah
  • v16 NO; Messiah greater WORTH and greater POWER
  • v17 greater ABILITY and crucial MINISTRY; “unquenchable” means unstoppable
  • v18 John’s Good News: God has sent the Worthy One, the Powerful Prince, the Capable Christ, the Unstoppable Emissary

John’s message is still applicable today – Get Ready: He Who Is ABLE to Save Is On The Way!
