Glorify God, Live Together, Make Disciples

Sermons by Luke Gorsett

Triumphant Humility

Triumphant Humility Since King Jesus triumphs in humility, his disciples must follow his example. John 12:12-26 Two scenes that show the paradoxical nature of Christ’s kingdom 1) The Spontaneous reception of the King (12-19) 2) The true glory of the King (20-26)

The Resurrection and the Life

Jesus’ greatest love is not sparing us from suffering but showing us his glory. Four great truths about Jesus: 1) He is sovereign over all circumstances (1–16) 2) He is the Resurrection and the Life (17–27) 3) He is passionate against sin (28–37) 4) He has power over death (38–44)

True Discipleship to “I Am”

True discipleship is freedom from self-interest and the devil and freedom for God. Jesus addresses three issues to clarify true discipleship: The promise of freedom (31–36) The problem of parentage (37–47) The pinnacle of authority (48–59)

The Cross

The cross reveals the horror of humanity’s sin and the heart of Christ. Mark 15:21-39 Humanity and Jesus revealed in two horrific scenes: 1) The irony of the cross (21-32) 2) The significance of the cross (33-39)

Living Water

As the source of living water, Jesus invites everyone who thirsts to come and drink. Four reasonable actions in light of Jesus’ teaching: Revere his authority (14–24) Receive his identity (25–36) Respond to his invitation (37–39) Recognize his opposition (40–52)
