Sermon at Nazareth
Who was Jesus? What did He stand for? What was His mission? These may seem like obvious questions for those of us who have been a part of the Church for many years. Maybe they are, but trying to answer those questions for someone who has no background in the faith may be more complex. It will take more than a quick "elevator speech" to rightly introduce Jesus!
As we continue in the gospel of Luke over these next few weeks, we'll notice how Jesus is revealed. He is the long-expected Messiah that has been foreshadowed in the passages we’ve been studying since September. He is the one many of us have heard about from a very early age in Sunday School. Even so, let’s ask God to give us eyes to recognize Him even more clearly in order that we might follow Him more faithfully.
