Sermons on Luke (Page 3)
Luke 10:25-37 You are more flawed than you think & the world is more fallen than most want to admit but God’s Grace is greater than we deserve or could ever dream. We celebrate the intoxicating joy of God’s Irresistible Grace most fully when we grieve our sin and the brokenness of this world most deeply.
Luke 10:1-24 Is your love for Jesus contagious? To the degree you live in the reality of His love for you, is to the degree your love for Him will be contagious (1John4:19; 1Pet2:9). Your contagious love for Him is the best way to put on display His amazing love for you (Matt5:16).
Luke 9:28-50 We believe that full devotion to Christ (Living for God’s Glory) and fullness of life (Our Satisfaction) are one in the same pursuit (John10:10b; Luke9:23-25). We were created by God, for God, to give glory to God (Rom11:36). God’s glory is best displayed in lives that are fully satisfied in Him (Phil1:20-21).
Luke 9:18-27, 51-62 Desert Breeze exists to help upchurched people become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that full devotion to Christ (God’s Glory) and fullness of life (Our Satisfaction) are one in the same pursuit (John10:10b, 17:3). There is a quantity and quality of life that is found in Christ that cannot be found anywhere else!
Luke 9:1-17 The Kingdom of God had arrived in Jesus Christ who was proclaiming it to everyone and authenticating it through miracles.

When they come back the training continues as He…
Luke 8:40-56 How do you hold onto your faith when God doesn’t make sense? What do you do when life doesn’t go as you had hoped it would? What do you do when circumstances seem to contradict God’s love, wisdom, & power?
Luke 8:22-39 In our fallen and broken world internal and external storms are inevitable. To the degree you are able to overcome your internal storms (questions/doubts/fears) is to the degree you will be able to overcome your external storms (people/things/circumstances).
Luke 8:1-21 As you grow in your intimacy with God, the more you will sense deep in your heart the delight of the only eyes in the Universe that matter, transforming every part of your life (Rom8:16; 1John3:1). What if I’m not hearing His voice like that? The heart of the problem is the problem of the heart (Pro4:23). This parable will help us to do a diagnostic check on…
Luke 7:36-50 In our text we meet two people, one a very religious moral man and the other a very irreligious immoral woman. Both are drawn to Jesus, both are in the presence of Jesus, both are listening to Jesus’ teaching. But one leaves distant, indifferent and unchanged. The other leaves feeling close to God, lavished by His love and transformed by His grace. In a…
Luke 7:18-35 A faith that has not been challenged by doubts is a naive faith that will be defenseless against suffering & smart skeptics.
