SOBER WARNING

The tone of Luke 21 is judgment and warning. The news from the wrong vantage point is frightening and gloomy. Yet, Jesus looked at life with a different perspective. He teaches his disciples to do so as well. Outlook determines outcome. Every time. The glitz and glamour of this world will vie for focus (v5). It takes patience to see life and events from the perspective of the Messiah (v19). Crisis and calamity draws attention away from reality (v11,20,25,34). Those listening to Jesus are perplexed as readers today (v7). Like the fig tree and season, Jesus observes, these events are markers pointing to a change in spiritual season (v29-33). For Christ’s followers, testing is a time for testimony (v13-14). The weight of testimony requires fervent prayer & spiritual stamina (v35-36). Without it disciples will certainly lose heart and give up. A constant focus on Christ and his kingdom will develop the disciple.

Use these questions to read, reflect, and live out Luke 21 this week:

Luke 21v1-4
What does Jesus see when you worship?

Luke 21v5-9
What question is Jesus asked?

Luke 21v10-19
What is the opportunity for the disciple in calamity?

Luke 21v20-24
What is destroyed and to what does it point?

Luke 21v25-28
Are we learning to see catastrophe’s from heaven’s perspective?

Luke 21v29-33
How can fig tree help us understand these times better?

Luke 21v34-38
How can you watch your soul based on Jesus warnings?

The Small Groups will study Luke 20 beginning May 27.

AUTHORITY ISSUES

Luke 20 begins where Luke 19 left off. Jesus is in the temple teaching and preaching. The Son of God has come to the place where people desire to meet God. The teaching of Jesus threatens dead, moralistic religion. He exposes their rejection and ultimate rebellion of God and his messengers despite their belief in God’s Word. Each time the opposition fails in their challenge of him. Like his listeners then, today’s readers wrestle with authority until they see the supremacy and sufficiency of Jesus’ authority.

Use these questions to read, reflect, and live out Luke 20 this week:

Luke 20v1-8
How have we rejected the authority of the Son?

Luke 20v9-18
How can we receive & honor the Son?

Luke 20v19-26
When do you fail to yield to authority over you?

Luke 20v27-40
How does eternity compare with this present age?

Luke 20v41-44
Whose Son is the Christ?

Luke 20v45-47
What is Jesus’ warning?

The Small Groups will study Luke 19 beginning May 20.

RESPONSES

As you read through Luke 19, you see a variety of responses to Jesus and his ministry. Luke 18 included the prayer of a tax collector. Now, in Luke 19, Jesus rescues and redeems the life of a tax collector. He illustrates the proper response of repentance and faith to the gospel. He welcomes Jesus into his home and walks away from greed. The next responses are a mixed bag. Some joyfully receive him. Others face the judgment of rejecting him. How does Jesus respond? Jesus is visibly broken over the spiritual poverty of Jerusalem. Are we moved to the same grief for the people around us? The gospel demands a response.

Use these questions to read, reflect, and live out Luke 19 this week:

Luke 19v1-10
How do you respond to the gospel?

Luke 19v11-27
How do you respond to his rule?

Luke 19v28-40
How do you respond to his demands?

Luke 19v41-44
How do you respond to his coming?

Luke 19v45-48
How do you respond to his words?

The Small Groups will study Luke 18 beginning May 13.

PS: Muffins with Mom is this Sunday at 10.30a in Worship Center. All ages! Blueberry, cranberry, strawberry, butter pecan, lemon-blueberry, cappuccino, chocolate chip! Sounds tasty…we’ll see you Sunday. Family Dedication will immediately follow.

  1.  TAKE ME TO THE BALLGAME
    The Baptists are headed to Globe Life Park! Texas Rangers will be playing the Houston Astros. Tickets in the all-you-can-eat section are $50. These are great seats with A/C nearby! Sunday is the last day to buy a ticket for the game.
  2. STUDENT SNACK SUPPERS
    Our student small group (7-12) meets on Sunday nights. We’re providing an environment to learn, grow, fellowship, and build a multiplying student body. Would you consider helping us? We are looking for some volunteers to provide a snack supper for 7-10 people. Email us for more information and to volunteer for a Sunday (office@fmfb.church)
  3. MUFFINS FOR MOM
    On Mother’s Day, we’re honoring the women of Flower Mound First Baptist. Like the women who followed Jesus, you’re an important testimony of God’s grace. There’ll be muffins to enjoy and a special photo area to remember this day in the Worship Center. Invite your friends & family to join us. We’ll start worship around 10.45a.
  4. PARENT CHILD DEDICATION
    Parent Child Dedication will take place on May 13 during our worship gathering. Child dedication is a commitment of a believer to obediently raise children in the knowledge and instruction of the Lord (Deut. 6.5-9). While dedicating your child is not evidence of your child’s salvation, it is a symbol of your dedication to the body of believers that your family will serve the Lord (Josh. 24.15). Email “Parent Child Dedication” to office@fmfb.church to register your family.
  5. GRADUATE RECOGNITION
    Do you have a senior graduating high school or college? We would like to recognize them on a Sunday. Email “Graduate Recognition” to register.
