Jesus Astonished by the Centurion’s Faith
Series: Luke
Luke 7:1-10
 
Jesus gives the greater healing in salvation. In this passage a Gentile demonstrates the kind of faith that the Son of God responds to: it is despairing, humble, and hopeful. For all those who put their faith completely in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins, they will be "found...well" in the day of God's judgment. They have nothing to fear either in this life or the life to come.

    The Fruit of Salvation
    Series: Luke
    Luke 6:43-45
     
    With profound simplicity Jesus teaches His disciples with a word picture that contrasts the entrance to heaven with entrance to hell. Jesus teaches that there are two groups, two paths, two gates, and two destinations. This eternally important comparison reveals the choice that every person must make between heaven and hell; between salvation and condemnation; between the singular worship and allegiance to Jesus Christ and the endless forms of false religion found in the evil world system governed by Satan.

    Get the Log Out of Your Eye
    Series: Luke
    Luke 6:37-42
     
    This passage is regularly used by Christians to support a view of "no judgment" in the Christian community. However, the reality that we are to pass judgment on one another is assumed in v. 42: "first take the log out of your own eye, then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye." Jesus' is not forbidding all forms of judgment, but continual faultfinding and criticism that eventually leads to contempt for other persons that result in condemning attitudes and behavior. Mercy, not continual faultfinding and condemnation are God's way of living in the kingdom.
