Bible Text: Luke 7:18-35 | Chris Robbins
Series: The Gospel According to LukeToday we are in Luke 7:18-35 (and the parallel passage in Matthew 11:2-19). Pastor Chris takes a look at what John the Baptist was expecting of the Messiah, and why he had doubts that Jesus was the Promised One. Jesus answers John’s questions by pointing back to the descriptions of the Messiah found in Isaiah 35:5-6 and 61:1-4. He is moving among the people as a teacher and a healer, and He has demonstrated His authority over life and death.

As we grow in Him, we will learn to respond to others the way that God responds to us – with grace, love and mercy. It is a walk of humility before God, seeking to follow the life Jesus Christ lived before us.

Series: From Kings to the KingPastor Chris Robbins teaches from Isaiah, chapters 59 and 60 today. God speaks to His chosen people through the prophet Isaiah - reminding them they are in exile because of their iniquities. (See also Psalm 137 and 2 Kings 24:2-4.) Yet these two chapters of Isaiah also hold hope: As God's people confess, repent and cry out for mercy and justice, the Lord answers with His reminder, "I am the LORD" and promises His peace, righteousness, and salvation to Israel.
