Keep the Faith (Luke 9:37-45) - 10/1/23

INTRO

  • From the mountain top to real life

  • We dare not stay on the glorious mountain top when there are battles to fight in the valley – Warren Wiersbe

  • We must keep the faith as we live the life!

  • A divine encounter that teaches us about faith.

The Father and His Son


The father’s concern

  • Loving father

  • Desperate. Only son. Needed help from outside his control.

The Son’s need

  • Physical

  • Spiritual

    • Under the rule of Satan

    • Spiritually dead


The Disciples


Faithless and twisted


Faith

  • Belief and Trust

Saving Faith – Ephesians 2:8-9

Sanctifying Faith – Galatians 2:20


Twisted

  • Distort, Pervert

  • Faithless… twisted life of trust

Luke 9:1 – And he called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, (ESV)



The Savior


Rebuked the unclean spirit

  • Reminded him who He was

  • Showed His authority

Restored the son

  • Healed

  • Gave back to father

Reminded the disciples

  • No faith without the cross

  • Suffering servant

  • Provides the disciples with the means to live out the disciple life

    • Sins forgiven

    • Clothed with His righteousness


The What Now

  • Jesus sends us out to do ministry in a fallen world

  • Keep the faith and stay on track (keep following Jesus)

  • We have the authority and power to live faithfully

  • Jesus is the answer to the evils of the world
