July 21, 2019 “The Priority of Helping”

Scripture: Luke 6:1-16

Sermon Summary: In just one page, Dr. Luke talked about: 1. How the new is sometimes incompatible with the old. Jesus brings new revelation and new insights to the New Testament.   2. In the context of the Jewish Sabbath, human need takes priority over strictly following rules. 3. Solitude and prayer were foundational to Jesus’ life. 4. Jesus is the glue and bond that unites a diverse group of followers. Circling back to #2, human need was always a priority for Jesus. Showing mercy, doing good, and loving people is near and dear to the heart of Christ, and I hope compassion is near and dear to your heart as well.
