The Significance of Jesus
Passage: Luke 9
C.S. Lewis said, "Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important." In this message, we pick up Luke’s Gospel at Chapter 9 verse 10. The significance of Jesus becomes clear through the last in a series of remarkable miracles. His identity, which He has thoughtfully unveiled, becomes clear to the disciples. As the fog lifts, Jesus outlines the implications of His identity, the call to follow Him, and offers a jarring interruption to the disciples' self-centered expectations. Like the disciples, we still need to have our expectations rattled so we can invest in the things that will last.
