Jesus Is Enough (Luke 11:29-32) - 1/14/24

INTRO

  • When the crowds were increasing… popularity is growing, but for the wrong reasons.

  • Earlier v. 16… they needed more. Show us a sign.

  • Faith was not enough, they needed more.

  • Also continuing the idea of true blessedness… hearing and obeying.

  • Faith, Hearing, and Believing is enough.

  • WHY DO WE NEED MORE? (show us a sign)

THE ARROGANCE OF UNBELIEF

Evil generation

  • These were the religious of society. Well thought of in society.

  • YET, they were sinners Ephesians 2:1

  • Today… all without the hope of the Gospel

  • The unconverted. Dead in our sins

Seeks a sign

  • Not a particular sign… just show me more.

  • Prove it to me.

  • Arrogance rather than humility

  • The truly supernatural is standing before them, but they want more.

None will be given

  • You have been shown enough

  • Nothing MORE will be revealed.

  • Jesus is enough!

THE SIGN OF UNBELIEF


  • He had already performed many miracles to this point.

  • There was not enough proof for their hardened hearts

Jonah

  • His ministry as prophet

  • His preaching of judgement

  • His call for repentance

Son of Man to this generation

  • Death, Burial, and Resurrections

THE REALITY OF JUDGEMENT


Queen of the South

  • 1 King 10:1-10

  • She came seeking wisdom from Solomon (seeking truth)

  • Jesus is much wiser than Solomon

Men of Nineveh

  • They responded to Jonah’s message of repentance

  • Jesus is greater than Jonah



What Now?

  • We have heard, yet we fail to believe.

  • We hear, yet we fail to obey.

  • It is a great picture of arrogance verse humility.

  • The hardened says “convince me.”  A receptive heart cries out “save me”

  • JESUS IS ENOUGH!
